This Thursday challenge 22

Hello all

Thanks for your comments last week.

Well feeling slightly better this week. So I have managed three examples for this week. This weeks challenge is playing with paint so I got my watercolour paints out as I havn't used them for ages.

Our sponsor is Toodle and Binks a new stamp manufacturer you can see them at,

We had three great stamps to play with. They are quite whimsical images which are not usually my style but I really enjoyed using them . Plus Zooms which I now love . They are small glass nugets with no holes which are great as they give amazing dimention .

anyway here are my three examples

I coloured the stamped image with watercolour paints and I really love this little dear stamp its so cute I added Zooms to create a border. The papers were both from a pack of Mic papers
I used powder paint on this canvas, I bought these paints ages ago they are very strongly pigmented . So I wet the canvas and sprinkled dry paint over the canvas. I stamped the image onto pearlescent card and onto a handmade paper which i cut out for the wings. I also added clear sakura glitter gel dots to the dress. I then used Cosmo Cricket rub ons for the Whimsy and flourish . I think the rub ons are called beautiful . Then added some Zooms
I used Cosmo Cricket get happy papers added some White acrylic smudges around the edges. I used the Pop quiz peice from the get happy paper pack and Stamped simone onto it. I used watercolours to colour stamped image. I added some pop questions about the 80#s. Added the reality Check from the same paper pack . Stamped Oh my God we're getting so old along the top and bottom wedhes. then stamped some random retro flowers . I added the die cut Cosmo cricket flower and a Zoom for the centre. Then I folded a 12 by 12 sheet od DCWV card in half and adhered panel for an XL DL card .

So thats my efforts for this week. Can't wait to see what you all come up with
