Follow your Dreams Designed for That's Crafty


I’m delighted to share my first craft project as a member of the That’s Crafty Design Team. I love stamping and That’s Crafty has the most amazing selection of stamps so it was very difficult to choose which ones to use.

I decided on making a small travel themed canvas and used some B line and Paperartsy stamps.  Firstly I stamped B line postcard collage on tissue paper and adhered it to the canvas using Claudine Hellmuth matt medium . I painted over a light wash of Fresco finish in ice blue & stencilled in a darker shade of blue. I painted some thin card in the same fresco finish paint and stamped paperartsy hot pick 1106 & urban snap shots structures plate 1 in archival ink and cut and glued onto my canvas. I added a quote and used whimsyStamps Sentiments Collection - Treasured Moments Tickets Sentiments & die. Finally I added a Wendy Vecchi flower and a touch of Inka gold.

Entering this Simon says show & stamp London, Paris or New York

Have a lovely day & happy crafting! xx
