"never stop DREAMING"

i started with 30 x 30 plain cardboard, which i covered with gesso and TIM HOLTZ distress ink. i blended three coloures to achieve the final result -  tea dye, weathered wood and peeled paint. 

then i used THE CRAFTER'S WORKSHOP "summer" stencil to outline my image. i glued ELISE's face onto the cardboard and repeated the stenciled image with brown COPIC CIAO marker.

when everything was dry i begun stamping! i used HC large elegant word background set and HC tattered background set with RANGER "coffee" archival ink pad and HC book frame 1 set with pink ink. i stamped the corner image from HC palace entry set with golden ink at the two top corners. when the ink was dry, i rubbed the edges of the cardboard with TIM HOLTZ' “tattered rose” distress ink to finish off  my background.

using HC elegant snowflake medallions set and green ink i created the garden at the bottom of the page. then i cut three garden fences with HC garden romance die, glued them on top of the stamped "flowers" and embellished them with white opal liquid pearls, stamped flowers and birds. 

i cut the window from HC decorative chateau gate die, but used only the swirl to embellish the my background. 

then i tore a sheet of creme mulberry paper in little pieces and glue them around ELISE'S face. when i finished, i outlined the hair one more time. 

i stamp the word SPECIAL from HC classic message set on the "hair" and the INSPIRE ME sentiment from HC inspire me sentiments set under the picture. and i added green pearls from the FWAB chloe olive green pearl flourish as a necklace. 

for the flowers i used HC daisy patch flowers set, HC posy patch flowers set and HC daisy patch die, HC posy patch die and four different colors mulberry paper. i shaped the petals by hand and added a pearl from FLOURISH WITH A BLING adhesive pearls 100 pack "pearl colour" to the center of the blooms. 

 i used green mulberry paper for the leaves {HC distressed leaves set and nested leaves nestabilities die}.

i took the small bird house {HC mailbox surprise set} and the small birds and butterflies {HC brookside manor set} and stamped few images directly on the background cardboard. then i took my mulberry papers and created colourful  birds and butterflies as well. 

for the title i used wooden letters, which i coloured with TIM HOLTZ’ "wild honey" and "tattered rose" distress ink pads.

i hope you enjoyed today's post!

come back tomorrow for more scrappy creations!

hugs 'n smiles,
