Canvas Board with New Lynne Perella Oriental Stamps


I am entering this canvas board for the Paper Artsy challenge. This week's Guest Designer is Carol Quance who has been one of my favourite artists and someone I have admired so much ever since I first started stamping. She has made a gorgeous hanging papier mache board using the new Lynne Perella Asian stamps and Fresco Finish paints which you can see here. She also made an Asian tag with an I Ching coin which you can see here, so I have used elements from both pieces.

I didn't have a papier mache board so I used a canvas board instead but used tissue paper and Fresco paints in the same way as Carol recommended, with one of the other new Asian Lynne Perella sets for a similar look, dotting some of the individual flowers around and using a border of them up the right hand side. I used London Bus for the background with some dry brushing of Snowflake. To finish off I have used a homemade I Ching coin and some chopsticks, wrapped in twine. The backdrop for my photo is the most amazing purple parasol that Petra gave me for my birthday!

  1. This is beautiful, so dramatic; I love the way you've dotted around those little flowers - the parasol is gorgeous. Maybe I should keep quiet about my crackly tissue stash, I hadn't considered that I might be mugged for it: thanks for the warning! lol!!! x
