The challenge for Stamp A Faire 2016 gallery reception was to share a project we are most proud of and link to Nichole Heady's blog to have a chance to win a prize.
Painting and drawing are sadly not talents I possess however I have taken inspiration from one of my sons who is a very talented young artist. He is studying The History of Art and Architecture , Dublin. The first painting he painted from a photo of a cow he took while out hiking one day, the second of my parents garden and the third he painted from a 30 year old photo of my parents.
My card uses the some of the colours from Conor's paintings. The frame is made using the die cuts from Don't Forget to Write Kit by Papertrey Ink. I used this years Stamp A Faire stamp set called Art with Heart for the flowers on watercolour paper and then blended the colours using a fine damp paintbrush. Cardstock all by Papertrey Ink.
For the challenge we were to show something that we had made and that we were most proud of. Looking back through my blog I found this photo of a Christmas craft fair a couple of years ago. I made each and every item in this photo and together with my husband made the stand too. I was so proud of my stall that year.
