The Stamp Man 3rd Annual Awards

Hello folks, hope you're having a good week so far despite the somewhat iffy weather.
After much thought I'm taking part in The Stamp Man's 3rd Annual Award event with a project I did in February 2011.

It's the most unique thing I've made so far as it included a hand drawn figure which as a stamper, I was really nervous about, but I really like the end result so decided to show it again here.

This is the canvas I made for the Gingersnap Creations Spicy Supply Challenge using Coffee Filters. In my case, I used natural coffee filter papers which I dyed with Neocolor 11 watercolour crayons and then stamped on to make the skirt for my figure. As the paper is almost fabric like, it was very easy to gather up with thread. I made the top with more plain dyed filter paper and added a cross hatch design under the saying which is my absolute favourite by Tim Holtz.
The canvas was painted and sponged with Golden fluid acrylics and then stamped on in places. I assembled the piece as you see with a profusion of plain and printed flowers and some decorative brads.

Thanks to The Stamp Man for once again hosting this great event and allowing us to reflect on and revisit our creations from 2011.
Hugs, Fliss xx
