Just Dreamy....

This is my entry to this weeks Thank God It's Friday challenge which is 'Dreams'. Every time I think about dreams, this beautiful Cherry Pie lady comes to mind. She has such a wistful expression, I don't know if she's happy or sad.
The canvas background has been painted with lots of acrylics, and over stamped with the swirly Stamp Camp stamp. I had inked it up in black, but the stamp actually removed the paint from the canvas and showed up what had been painted on underneath. I think this looks quite nice so I am claiming it as my own brilliant idea lol.
The sentiment is from Elusive Images and has been printed on tissue paper.
My lady has been coloured in with ProMarkers.
The smaller grungy stamps are also Cherry Pie and have been painted with Ranger dabbers.
Thanks very much for looking and have a fab (and hopefully sunny) weekend x

  14. This looks lovely, Sue! It is hard to tell what the pie lady is thinking, but she's wonderful. The background is fantastic, both the green and the black. Thanks for sharing how you created it. With regard to your comments on my blog: The smartest professors always told me, "There's no such thing as a stupid question." My artwork is digital. I wish I could draw/paint, but I wasn't born with that gift. I have a great imagination, but then I need to find digital images to create the picture (painting) in my mind. - Anne
