May All Your Dreams Come True

Good morning and Happy Monday. Today I'm over at the Ink Art Designs Stamping Playground with my Just A Girl And Her Imagination piece. 

It's a 6x6 (ish) piece of cotton rag paper that's been stencilled with Distress Inks and Oxides.

 Wow, what a great photograph, I can see why I would take this... If a picture is worth a thousand words this one's worth about 17! Ok, so I stamped my 2 main images, and left everything on the stamping platform so I could paint everything where it was.
 Actually, I didn't do too bad a job, but lots of the fine detail has gone. Everything's been colored with PaperArtsy Fresco paints. I love how the translucent colours let the details underneath show through.  Also as the stamps and paper are still on the stamping platform I can re-stamp the detail back in.

As if by magic the whiskers are back! I've just added a sentiment and a few sequins to finish off. I have a few of these sheets now, and when I've got enough I'll bind them all together
All of these stamps can be found here in Dot's store along with lots of other goodies.
I hope you're all staying well, and coping with the ever-changing Coronavirus/Social Distancing rules. Today we are meeting my sister for the first time since lockdown (outdoors at Clumber Park) so fingers crossed for good weather!
Take care, and thanks so much for looking xx


  1. Hi Sue, that's another wonderful piece today. But I hope all my dreams don't come true, I have been having bad ones lately! Have fun meeting your sister again. Hugs, Valerie

  2. I just love Tracy's stamps and have been using one myself today. This is such a great piece, I love how the translucent paints look with a hint of the background showing though.

    I hope you had a lovely visit with your sister. It seems we will be let out of lockdown to meet someone on 7 July but I am not holding my breath.... I think it will be a while longer than that before I feel safe to go outside my own garden. Stay safe and well. Anne xxx

  4. Hi Sue this little guy is just too sweet, love him to bits. Have a lovely creative week and a great day at Clumber Park. We've not been there for a while but I love it and it brings back many happy memories of days out with the family as it's not too far from where my parents live (well only mum now). Hugs, Angela xXx

  5. Oh, that's great! :D
    An adorable project for your DT, which will be part at the final stage of another wonderful journal I'm sure!
    I love these cute stamps, perfectly painted here, carefully. the result looks beautiful, I love it
    Have a fun and sunny day,

  6. Yours too! Love the inky background - so good on the cotton rag paper - and I love your little mouse dreaming of getting away.
