This is a 4" x 4" mini canvas.
I started by colouring the canvas with Broken China distress ink, next (and a first for me) i finally tried some of my Stampboard (which i have had sat longing to be used, since my visit to ally pally in April lol) , i chose 3 of the oblong pieces as they just fitted the Mona (Stampers Anonymous) stamp perfectly.
I pushed all 3 of the SB pieces together before stamping Mona with a Carnation archival ink pad, i then used my Copic pens to add to the colouring of her face and hair, and scraped away pieces in these same places to define further. To finish i also added a tiny ickle pearly bead necklace and a crown punch (which was cut from mirri card and textured using the Tim Holtz hammer thingy!)
Now that the canvas was dry i stamped a flourish (Stampers Anonymous) down one side in just a black ink, it didn't stamp very well (my own fault as still haven't got all the strength back in my hand yet lol) so i decided to improvise... Using silicone glue i stuck the 3 pieces of SB Mona down the opposite side leaving a tiny gap between each piece, and then set to work with the amending of the flourish, i used a purple sakura pen first to go over the fluffed attempt of stamping, and then highlighted most of it again with a Starry Night stickles.
I am so happy with the way the whole thing finally ended up, i didn't think i was gonna pull it off but all was right in the end.
