Stamping Art!

I wanted to share a little project I have over at Quixotic...
I started out with the intention of creating a card but sometimes the project just follows their own route and want to be a little different! As you can see I'm still using the wonderful characters in the The Greeting Farm - Stamp Kit- Creeper Crew - Creepin' and I picked the fabulous Sasha for my picture. Sasha reminds me very much of Maoleidigh, I've coloured with copics and her dress is paper pieced.
Inspired to create a background with clouds and sky I used a masking technique by tearing paper cloud shapes and using repositioning glue before airbrushing. I had the idea of creating a rainbow, just had to be done with those clouds ROTFL! I did however need to spray a generous amount of colourless blender to make the rainbow a little more transparent!
I obviously have a love of long wild grass I just go with it and the grass gradually grows as I colour and with wild flowers like dandelions it's so fun to create. It doesn't show in my photos but I've added just a touch of spica glitter to the flower centres.
Now onto the fun part of my project, Here's a close up of the yummy new MAKE IT CRAFTY LASERCUT CHIPBOARD. I've used swirly corners for three of the corners and the butterflies are from the fine swirls set. I've glued all the laser cut pieces in place before giving the frame a weathered crackle effect. Then a little distress stain was lightly added to age it.
The mount is patterned paper from the gorgeous GRAPHIC 45 ONCE UPON A SPRINGTIME
I added a grunge edge to the cutout of the mount using distress ink and stamping stempleglede grunge collection directly onto the patterned paper.
I used that many colours to complete my picture I needed two pots to picture the copics I used LOL!
