Craft Stamper March Challenge

Hello my friends.
Welcome to another Craft Stamper Challenge.
Here is my project for today's inspiration post. 

I used a stamp called Dream Girl from Unity Stamp Company. I have a ton of stamps that I have not got around to using. This one has been in my stash for over a year. I finally got around to using it for this card.  I love the sentiment that runs down the side of her face. 

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember you have within you the strength, the patience and the passion to reach for the stars, to change the world.
Harriet Tubman

I used my Zig water colour markers on the girl. Then for the background I used my butterfly stencil and distress oxides. I wanted to have this hazy background that represented dreams. You know that way when you are dreaming but you don't always remember them they can be a bit vague. I wanted to capture that on the card. I stencilled some butterflies with black distress oxide ink then took a water brush and wet them to make them a little  hazy but still keeping butterfly form.  I then added some seedless preserves oxide ink to add some colour into the background. I used a lot of water and let it air dry and it left lots of lovely water marks which added some more interest.  I love the way it turned out.

I hope you have time to come and join in challenge. We have this lovely prize up for grabs this month. A stunning  Tim Holtz stamp set.

All of the details can be found on the Craft Stamper Blog.
