The Paper Funday Challenge - Artistic Dreamer

Hello and Happy 1st Wednesday of the Month!  Today begins a new challenge month at The Paper Funday Challenges where the theme is Always Anything Goes with an Optional Twist; the Twist this month is Family.

We have 2 generous sponsors this month:  Dr. Digi House of Stamps and Colour of Love.  For my design team project, I've used the Artistic Dreamer digi stamp from Colour of Love

I've colored the image with Spectrum Noir Illustrator Alcohol Markers, fussy cut and set aside to work on the background.  I've die cut a panel using the Cube Cover Die from Altenew and ink blended varying shades of Blue Distress Oxide inks over top.  I splattered the panel with water and White Gloss Spray for a dreamy and ethereal look and feel.

The image has been mounted on craft foam for dimension, stitched die cut stars adorn the piece and the sentiment comes from the Blooming Brushes Stamp Set by Miss Ink Stamps.  Lastly, clear crystal gems have been added for additional sparkle and shine.

We invite you to join us this month and we hope to inspire you with our designs.  Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!
