Embrace Imperfection

Happy Saturday!! I hope you are having a great weekend!! It's chilly but sunny here today. It just seems like spring is closer when the sun is shining :)


I have a card to share with you today. I am having so much fun with Dyan Reaveley's Dylusions stamps. Today I'm using Curious Corrin. Aren't her curls fun?? It's hard to tell in the pics, but they are Spun Sugar pink :)


I've ordered Dylusions sprays but they aren't here yet, so I used Studio Calico Mister Huey's sprays for the background. The base is watercolor paper. Overdue, Pumpkin Spice, Plum Thumb, Heirloom Blue,  Dewey and Estate Green Mister Huey's were sprayed onto the background. Pumpkin Spice was sprayed over a Crafter's Workshop Numerals stencil, and Overdue sprayed on a Donna Salazar Brick stencil. Estate Green spray was mixed with water on a craft sheet and a Tim Holtz dots stamp from the Psychedelic Grunge stamp set was stamped randomly. The circles stamp from the same TH set was inked with Ranger Archival ink in black. A few of the circles were outlined with a Picket Fence Distress Marker.


Curious Corrin was colored with Tim Holtz Distress Markers and a TH Fine Point Water Brush. Spun Sugar was used on her hair, Antique Linen for her skin, Tumbled Glass for her eyes and Barn Door for her lips. Her dress was colored with Dusty Concord, Spiced Marmalade and Forest Green. Stormy Sky and Tumbled Glass were used on the tights, Spun Sugar and Victorian Velvet on the boots. Corrin was outlined with a Sakura Gelly Roll pen in white.


Embrace Imperfection was stamped with a Hero Arts small alphabet set onto watercolor paper. Antique linen was sponged on top, Black Soot on the edges. The words were popped up with foam tape for dimension.


I am entering Curious Corrin in the following challenges:
  1. Simon Says Stamp and Show - Something Messy
  2. Dl.Art Thankful Thursday - Linky Party
  3. Sunday Funday #6 - Linky Party
Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a great weekend :)

My sweetest friend, I'm so tickled that we posted at nearly the same time! How fun is that?! (Not that I'm easily amused or anything..hehe.) You did an astounding job on the background with the sprays.. I particularly love that you used that brick stencil. It's those little details that I always love about your work. :o) Corrin is absolutely marvelous in her floofy dress and sweet pink curls! :o) Gorgeous color combo for her and wonderfully colored. And of course the sentiment choice is fantastic. Stunning work as always, my dear Lisa! I hope the sun keeps shining for you! :o)

Hugs and blessings!
