#73 Left of Center New Challenge~Spots and/or Stripes

Welcome to a brand new challenge that begins today with Left of Center Creative Challenges. This is challenge #73, our theme is Spots and/or Stripes! This is a fun one!

Our fabulous sponsor is Limited Runs Digital Stamps.

I am so happy I was given a wonderful digital stamp to play with. It is Mushroom #9 and you can see it HERE.

"Dream a Little Dream" Mixed Media 'canvas' about 5 inches by 7 inches.

Click  the images to make them a bit bigger :)

My substrate is cardboard, just rough cut and raggedy. Neat cardboard does not quite strike me right....It is covered with a thin layer of gesso and then built up with some FolkArts Acrylics and Dylusions spray inks.

The mushrooms are colored with Bics and Sharpies. The sleeping fairy is a red rubber stamp, I don't know who made it. Just a fun image.

The flowers are made with my Tim Tattered Flower Garland die, cut from crinkled Deli Wrap tissue.

As always at Left of Center you are welcome to follow the suggested theme or if that does not strike your fancy, you are most welcome to play towards the dark side. We would love to see what you make!

Sweet Dreams and thanks so much for visiting!
