Take Time to Smell the Flowers.........

This is a canvas I made a little while ago with a combination of Dylusions Stamps and Sprays.  I gotta say that I just love Dyan Reavely's stamps.  They are quite quirky and stamp beautifully!
Firstly, I created a background on the canvas by spraying through masks and building up some layers.  I then stamped the edges with the stamp set "Around the Edge DS006" with Jet Black Archival, highlighted with gold Promarker and coloured the bottom green to mimic grass. I also stamped the small leaves from the same set onto the canvas on the sides and then onto white card which I coloured with promarkers, cut out and using Pinflair Glue Gel adhered to the canvas.
From the sets "Tallulah DS004" and "How does your garden grow DS008"  I stamped the flowers (multiple times), body, and head onto white card and coloured with Promarkers and the wings on to Angelina film sandwiched with Angelina fibres, cut out, arranged and adhered onto the canvas with glue gel, layering up the flowers to create depth and dimension, until I was happy with the composition.  I then used glitter glue to highlight the flower centres.
This project was great fun to make an I was really happy with the finished article.  I'll have to have a go at making another one of these, I think.
