Whimsical Sisters

Hello everyone, I hope you are having a great weekend.   We are enjoying the great outdoors, it's beautiful, sunny with not too much humidity... love it :)   

I finally had a chance to use new stamps that were designed by Marja for Kico Stamps, I love her whimsical ladies, these two seem like sisters.  



The background is Dylusions Inks along with Distress paints using a stencil and some stamping.  I stamped the girls separately which I painted with Distress and Acrylic paints, cut them out and attached.  I added a gloss gel medium over the entire design and sprinkled glitter which you can't see in the photo.

I drew their bodies and extended their hair as I've seen Marja do in her designs.  I also cut the neck of the smaller girl to tilt her head at a different angle.  You can have great fun with these stamps.

Here is a look at the stamp set.


Thanks for stopping by and have a great week,
Shirleyx

Precious piece you created with those lovely whimsical girls Shirley.
Really lovely background too.
The weather you're describing is my favorite kind of summer day.
Lower humidity makes it ever so pleasant doesn't it.
