Craft Stamper Magazine's Take It Make It Challenge - Tissue Stamping

It's a new month and a new challenge over at the Craft Stamper Magazine's Blog and it's one of my favourite things to do, stamping onto tissue paper!
First I started by covering a canvas board with some ripped up dictionary pieces, then painted over the top with a couple of layers of white Gesso
Then using the "Big Butterfly" from IndigoBlu I stamped onto a mansize paper tissue with Brilliance Ink, gently tearing around the edges as close as I dared!
I added the Butterflies using Slap It On Matt and left it to dry before inking and stamping around the edges of the canvas.
To finish off I added the word "Fly" with Brilliance ink and a pencil line around the edges.
As always we have a fabulous prize up for grabs and the chosen winner will also have their artwork published in a forthcoming issue of The Craft Stamper Magazine, so keep those Take It Make It entries safe and please don't forget to leave a link straight back to your project, and use stamps!
