A girl can dream

First of all, Ruthann's dessert yesterday was warm Apple Crisp with vanilla ice-cream. Yum, Yum. If you live in the Peoria/Henry, Illinois area and happen to need some special baked goods or a wedding cake, give her a shout at Divine Cakes.

I stamped the arbor from Art Impressions onto white Beckett Radiance cardstock and also on printer paper. The arbor on the printer paper was cut out and double sticky tape placed on the back. The printer paper image was then taped over the first image on cardstock. I used a stamping positioner to place the Tilda into the arbor and then masked her in the same way. I used my airgun to spray the blue and green background, masking off each as the other was sprayed. Then I removed all the masking and colored in the images.

After the images were colored I used the rest of the stamps, the Art Impressions vine and flowers. The swallow is a stamp from Firecracker Designs by Pamela. The paper is K&Co Que Sera Sera. If you have any questions, please contact me, I'm happy to help.
