    Gee Nat- I would love a set! Woo hoo thanks for the chance!
    Seeing that the stamps are titles Fiesta- I would probably do a page or canvas celebrating fat Tuesday which is coming up- a little bit of
    Marris Gras for sure!
    hugs!

    I would use it for a wedding scrapbook page since it was held in Texas and the bride had her hair done up. the man’s hat reminds me of a cowboy hat. I would use the stencils as a silhouette in a lower corner and fill in with text about each person.

    I am doing the Documented Project Life this year and I’m sure the stamp set would be a welcome addition to my collection. I know I could make good use of it on a journal page.

Fiesta Girl Canvas

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Mixed Media

NatKalbachFiesta01

I created this canvas board with my new Stampendous Fiesta Stamp Set for the CHA Booth.

 

NatKalbachFiesta02

I first painted the background with different green shades. Then I stamped the background with different acrylic colors and the Fiesta stamps. Next, I masked off the background with the woman silhouette and used Parchment and a light mist of Black Liquitex Spray Paint over it.

NatKalbachFiesta03

I took some paint at some areas off again and then used Titanium White Spray Paint and an alphabet stencil moving over the whole canvas with the lady still masked off. The letters were applied in the end with Gel Medium.

Here are the supplies I used:

have a wonderful day and do something creative!

    This canvas is my favourite piece from cha. When I saw it, I went to the stampendous website to try and figure out what stencil you used. I love the women stencil and the stamps. Thank you for sharing your inspiring techniques for this canvas. In the future this stencil and stamps will be used in my art journals and cards. Thank you for sharing your creativity with all of us.
