It is oldie moldie because the canvas is a $1 canvas that had an image on it for kids to paint. I always picked them up because hey - it was a cheap 5 x 5 canvas. I have had the stamp for awhile. The SRM Sticker has been hanging out in my crafting area for a couple years. You get so many stickers on a sheet it is hard to use them all up.
I covered the canvas with a page from a dictionary. I used gel medium to adhere it to the canvas. I then applied a layer of gesso. I stamped the tree with VersaMark and used brown embossing powder. The background was painted with distress paints. The sentiment strip was painted with three colors of distress ink.
I am going to enter this into the monthly challenge at Unity Stamps. You have a choice: a picture to inspire your color selection or a sketch. I chose the colors. I used different pieces of paper to coordinate with the colors in the inspiration picture. I get so much use out of my little hand punch.
I am also entering it into the SRM Monthly challenge. This time my project is inspired by the picture in the challenge. The colors and the leaves. (I used whimsical leaves.)
I am also going to enter this in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge which is "falling love with...". I really am falling in love with mixed media. I guess I just like to get my hands all goopy but I sure am having lots of fun.
It was kinda fun for me to be able to actually have my oldie moldie Monday creation work itself into a couple challenges.
Enjoy your Monday. One day closer to the week end.
