The Prom Queen Stampotique stamp has always been my favorite in their collection. I've been using her for many years now the only difference today is she's doing the splits. I couldn't fit her and the phrase from Stampers Anonymous on the 6" by 6" canvas without a little surgery. I started the canvas by painting on some DWM acrylic paint in the Lemon color.
While the gesso was drying I busied myself with stamping, coloring my image with Copics and then trimming her out. I stamped the phrase, tore the edges and distressed them using a Copic pen. I attached the stamped pieces to the canvas using Beacon 3-in-1 adhesive and applied some clear GooseBumps with a brush to a few areas to give them a little shine.
This is a nod to all my online friends. My husband calls them my "imaginary friends" since he has never met them. I keep telling him they are as real as I am!
I hope you'll give stencils a try, they make such nice background textures. We've had a lovely summer here in New England. Take care ~ Renee
