Baby & Pastels April More Than Words Challenge

Now I know you'll be super inspired by our April challenge : Baby and Pastels

I just had to do a layout of my friend's daughter, she is just too adorable.

I wanted something soft, so I chose to make my stamped flowers in a light pink hue using my Lindy's stamp gang sprays. I heat e,bossed my chipies in an even lighter tone. The small touches if the  pink, gives this baby layout the softness that works well with the baby picture.

Can't wait to see your work !



Fantasy & Wings for More Than Words

I am living the dream of visiting my FANTASY land this month with our More Than Words challenge.

Oh what fun did I have with this one. I've had this amazing funky flower stamp set in my stash just waiting for me to play around with. They were just perfect to create my imaginary FANTASY world as I would of course be the Queen Fairy in my world and you know, all Queen Fairies have huge WINGS.

Here is my watercolor project:

I used Strathmore 12x 12 watercolor paper, started my background by stamping my flowers with Archival ink. Then colored with my elements with watercolors.

For my Fairy, I used a Dina Wakely Stamp and added chipboard wings that I covered in black gesso and altered with my Prima Finnabair Waxes.

Here is the inspiration board, I hope you'll be inspired and want to play along.
