Smile and Be Yourself

Hello and Happy Weekend, I hope you are all doing well. 

I have a card and tag to show today which I created using whimsical stamp sets designed by Marja DeVissor for Kico Stamps.

I created the same background for both using Dylusion spray inks & over stamped with a tangled circle. Most stamped images are from Plate 51.   The girl on the tag is from Plate 73 -I extended her body using a pigment pen.

I coloured the stamped images with Distress Paints, white heavy Acrylic Paint and Distress Inks (using my craft mat with water and brush).







Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.
Shirley
