I wanted to make a Valentine wall decor for my daughter Natalie so I used Simon's New Valentine Stamp and Claudine Hellmuth Foam Stamps to create this mixed media canvas. I always love to mix and play with some new stamps and some old stamps that I seldom used recently.
After I roughly drew a girl image on the watercolor paper, I cut and pasted it on the canvas. I colored the image and the background with Gelatos and Gesso. You may click here or here to see how I used Gelatos to color on canvas or watercolor paper.
To make a chalkboard sign for the girl to hold, I stamped the Simon Says New Valentine Stamp then heat embossed it on the black cardstock. The background was stamped using foam stamps and Colorbox Paintbox Chalk Inkpad.
I love the beautiful sentiment and these cute background stamped patterns.
