Art On Her Mind

  Masking, stamping and inking was definitely the fun part of this card and even I can’t believe that 2013 was the last time I dusted this little stamp off.  She’s from PaperArtsy called Dolls Plate 1.  The suitcases came from another ancient stamp set and the sentiment is a Wendy Vecchi called Art On Her Mind from Studio 490.

To get the octagonal design in the middle I used the Large Octagon dies from Spellbinders to make the masks.

    Wow, Shirl! How do you keep coming up with the greatest art stories? I love the expressions on your artist’s face LOL, and the amazing background – did you achieve that with masking techniques? Or is it layered? Your sentiment combined with the “tiara” are so perfect! Nice warm colors with a touch of blue! Beautiful! hugs, de

    She looks like she’s going to a workshop! Is that a self portrait? Lol… Great fun image and the background is satisfying inky.
