My First Prima "Bloom Girl" and A Craft Stamper Challenge...

I am over-the-moon excited to share this project with all of you - my first attempt with a Prima Bloom Girl stamp by Jennie Dougherty using a twist on the "stamping on tissue" technique to create this mixed-media-on-cardboard gem...

The inspiration was provided by the September challenge over at CRAFT STAMPER... and the first place winner will be published in the UK's number one stamping magazine, so wish me LUCK!  But whether I win or not matters NOT, because just look at what I created in one glorious day of creativity! ... Happy Dance...
I used Golden acrylic paints and Liquitex light modeling paste colored with LuminArt Primary Elements powders smeared through my current favorite Dyan Reaveley Dylusions stencil - Small Bubbles - on a piece of 6x8 inch cardboard.  After everything had dried I sprayed the entire background with Perfect Pears Heirloom Gold Mist and dried it with my heat gun as it ran into the cracks and crevices.  This accented the texture and really made my bubbles pop.
Then I stamped my image on tissue paper using Ranger Archival Ink, because this ink won't run when it gets wet.  I applied my image to the textured background using Golden's Liquid Multi-Medium with a very light hand.  I find this product the one to use on tissue or napkins because it doesn't shred the material, and it takes paint and pen very nicely when it has dried.

I colored my image using Derwent Inktense sticks as paint, because - again - this product, once dried, will not run or transfer color when you layer more colors.  Now at this point, because I had lost some of the detail of my image, I stamped the image on tissue paper a second time and glued it overtop of my colored image to bring back the outline details.
Then I went to town with my Rangers Stickles and Liquid Pearl and accented everything to create texture and dimension... You could say that I painted her with Stickles... Grin.  I used my .3 Staedtler pigment liner to bring back any lines that were covered up, and my favorite Signo Uni-ball white gel pen to add highlights.  Two different Unity Stamp sets provided my sentiments, which I again stamped on tissue paper and adhered with Multi-Medium...

So shy not pop on over to the Craft Stamper September Challenge to see what everyone else has submitted and maybe consider joining in? 
Thanks for stopping by to see what I am up to today, and Wish me LUCK...Cheers!
