Stampendous Sneak Peek - Day 7

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.

THE TRASH? I just don't know what to say---coming from the LEAST artistic person on the planet (my niece, at 3, produced better art than I did--she tried to make me feel better---it's nice, Aunt Sharon....). So sad. So, I hope that you are thankful that you are SO DARNED GIFTED!!!!! EEK, I love that painting. I hope that you love it now, too! GORGEOUS!
