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!
