Gatsy Canvas

Over on Happy Daze blog today I have made this 5 x 7 ins canvas board using Artistic Outpost Gatsby stamps which I stamped on tissue paper and then pieced together onto the canvas and adhered with gel medium, and then blended Distress Inks over the top in Squeezed Lemonade, Peacock Feathers, Dusty Concord, and Chipped Sapphire. I used texture paste through a mask on the right hand side.  I also added a butterfly from Artistic Outpost Whimsical Melange. I finished off with some mulberry flowers and an embossed butterfly.

I am entering this into the Artistic Outpost February Referral Programme. You can get their beautiful stamps from them if you are in the US - still loving them just as much as ever! - or from Happy Daze if you are in the UK.


  1. So pretty, Lucy! Love the Gatsby collection and how you added them to your canvas! And you even dressed her up in her finest pearls! Hugs!
