TGF Dreamy kit Preview Day Blog Hop

I am just SOOOO excited! I can finally let you in on a project that I had been working on for a little while. Suzanne had told me that The Greeting Farm was looking for mixed media peeps for a “secret project”. Well I have loved The Greeting Farm stamps and I was excited in the opportunity to work with them in a different way. I applied and was ecstatic that I was chosen!

A warm welcome to readers arriving from the Greeting Farm! :)

Today we’re previewing the Dreamy Kit which will be released this Saturday, June 15th. The kit is 8.5×11 with a whooping 16 stamps in their signature deep etched red rubber! It’s geared for mixed media but of course can be used for regular card making too!

This is one of two canvases I had created. (the 2nd will be posted on release day). After applying gesso to the canvas, I sprayed Dylusions inks to tint the background. To stamp the background images I used archival inks to ensure that the ink wouldn’t smudge on the gesso. The flower spots were also stamped using archival ink but on top of Distress Paint. The flower stems were painted by hand. Talk about fun, fun, FUN!!
