Stampendous and Dreamweaver Stencils Blog Hop

Welcome to the Dreamweaver Stencils and Stampendous "Faces of Art" Blog Hop!  I hope you've enjoyed all the inspiration this week and that you've left loads of comments for a chance to win!

For my project today I've inverted a canvas and used the backside as my base.  The face from the Blossom Beauty stamp has been stamped in Archival ink onto Bazzill music paper and then painted with a wash of Distress ink and cut out.  I added  the flower stamp from the same set that was stamped onto a stenciled piece of pattern paper and then die-cut using the matching Blossom Beauty die.  My paper was stenciled with Mosaic Swirls in Distress paint.

The coral  pattern paper on the inside of the canvas was stenciled with more distress paint using the Damask stencil.

My edges were painted with Distress paint and then covered with crochet ribbon from May Arts.  The collar on my Beauty was created with Crochet trim from Petaloo.  I also added some painted flowers and butterfly from the new Burlap collection from Petaloo as well as a sentiment tag using the Dream Forever stamp.

Be sure to hop around to everyone's blogs today for a chance to win one of three prize packages:

Stenciled Blossom Beauty

Stampendous and Dreamweaver Stencils have such a wonderful working relationship that we are collaborating again this week!  I hope you've been catching all the beautiful projects this week at the Stampendous blog and the Dreamweaver blog.  And don't forget to catch our blog hop tomorrow!

For today's project I've used the flower stamp from Blossom Beauty and the coordinating Blossom Beauty dies to create a dimensional flower.  After stamping the image thrice I used each of the three different dies and then layered my pieces with dimensional adhesive.  My images were stamped in Versamark ink and then embossed in Aged Win and Aged Teal Embossing Enamel.

My background was created using the Letterpress technique and the Large Scales stencil with Blue Martini Memories Mist.  I also added a leaf looking flourish with Art Nouveau Flourish stencil and Kiwi Metallic F/X powder.
