This is the piece that made the front cover of the Stampendous catalog. I was shocked and very very excited. This piece actually spent quite a few hours in the trash can before making another attempt at it. This is a painted canvas using acrylic paint and my airbrush and copics as well as a stencil from Dreamweavers. Let me briefly take you through the steps. Be sure and leave some love and finish along the hop for your chance to win.
I stamped my image (Jumbo Magnolia) on a stretched canvas. Using acrylic paint I started painting within the lines of the flower. I stamped a second image on paper and cut out the leaves leaving the flower in tact. I have now made a image mask. Using my airbrush and homemade mask I airbrushed the leaves in. I then stamped the image one more time and cut out the complete flower. placing it on top on the whole flower and leaves I airbrushed the background. I added a flourish using my dreamweaver stencil.
