Darling Child by Alison

Hello Stampers! I have a little 5x5 canvas to share with you for my first post of the month.


To colour the canvas, I schmooshed peeled paint & broken china distress inks onto my craft sheet, spritzed with blue raspberry perfect pearl mist, then dipped the canvas in the ink. I dried it with my heat gun, then carried on dipping in the ink, until I had a pleasing background. Then I edged the canvas with vintage photo distress ink, & stamped the music background in the 4 corners with coffee archival ink.

I stamped the girl image from The Artistic Stamper Childhood Dreams plate, using coffee archival ink, then inked with vintage photo & broken china distress inks.


I stamped the Calligraphic Mat 15 onto a small tag, using peeled paint distress ink, then the words from the Childhood Dreams plate in coffee ink. I added the flower fairy image from Botanical Plate 3, in the top right corner, & the edge of the rose in the bottom left corner, then edged the tag with broken china distress ink.

I embossed a couple of Ideaology Foliage flowers with broken china distress embossing powder, then a couple of long fasteners with shabby shutters distress EP. I added the larger one to the tag, & the smaller one to a prima flower, layered with a circle of vintage music sheet.

I layered my stamped images with an inked doily, a scrap of inked music sheet, & the flower. To finish, I added a scrap of cream lace & blue ribbon.

The Perfect Pearl Mists are on special offer HERE on The Artistic Stamper website.

Thanks for looking,
Alison xxx
