She Knows her Own Strength

I just love the new Cowgirl Strength plate - there's so many wonderful ways to use these stamps, not to mention 3 beautiful focal images!

My piece is a 4" x 6" Mixed Media Canvas.  I purchased a 5" x 7" flat Canvas from Michaels and cut it to size so there wasn't a lot of extra space.

Mixed Media - Stamps Artistic Outpost Cowgirl Strength
The background is created with pieces of pattern paper from the My Minds Eye Lost and Found Ruby Collection, Gesso, paints, Stencils and stamps from the Cowgirl Strength plate.  The Cowgirl is stamped on a scrap piece of pattern paper, her outfit was also stamped on scraps and pieced over the stamped image. The banner was stamped onto the Canvas, then stamped again on to scrap pieces of pattern paper and pieced into place.

Thanks for stopping by!

I love this! The technique of stamping onto patterned paper and then adding scraps to the image can be used so many ways. Thanks for the beautiful inspiration!

Oh my, this is fabulous, Lisa. Love the way you have created the background and the colors are just wonderful. Your banner is terrific too and that stitching is the perfect embellishment. This ROCKS!
