Hoppy Easter and A New Challenge over at Oddball Art STamps

Good Day All, First of All I want to wish you all a very Happy Easter, Hope you are all enjoying this long weekend.

Today I'd like to share with you my creation for this months Oddball Art Stamps Challenge.

Our theme this month is Messy and Sketchy As it's also Easter Weekend, I decided to create a page in my mini art journal for both occassions;

This gorgeous image is 'Maddelina the Bunny Girl image#83',  I love how she's cute and sassy; looks like she having fun on her Easter Egg Hunt.

The background is a piece of canvas I did some Gelli Printing on the other day.  
I cut out a large circle from one of my plain gel prints and added half to the left side of the canvas and another piece to the bottom right corner.  
I applied it with matte medium, and got impatient so dried it with my heat gun, which made it bubble. Not a happy mess!  So I ripped off the bubble sections and used a sanding block to even out the surface a little.  Luckily that looked better, so I added my fussy cut sentiment along with another layer of matte medium and left it to dry overnight.

I used Faber-Castell PITT Pens to colour my image.  I then added lots of Doodled shapes and a frame with Posca Paint Pens.  I also added my sentiment with Posca Paint Pens.

For finish my image off I added some colour and highlights with Posca Paint Pens before outlining it with a thin black paint pen.

Once dry I added a layer of water based spray varnish which sealed all the paint pens, so my canvas is now waterproof.

I then added my finished canvas piece into my 6 x 6 mini journal.
