Wicked Wednesday Mexican Folk Art
I was so excited about the Wicked Wednesday ATC challenge theme of Mexican Folk Art I was beside myself! You all know about my Dia de los Muertos obsession and I've amassed a bazillion images and stamps in the theme, however, narrowing it down to what I actually wanted to USE was a BIG PROBLEM! Well, I finally made a decision and went a bit more generic choosing the Viva la Vida clear stamp set by Danita from Crescendoh.com, celebrating the Mexican folk artist Frida Kahlo. I stamped (actually STAMPED, I'm so proud of myself, LOL) the background using the flower stamp from the set as well as her name and colored with Copics. She is famous for her self portraits (and her unibrow) so I used the face stamp, colored, fussy cut and popped her. Easy peasy, eh? I wish I'd started this 5 days or so ago, 'cause then I could have made MORE! At least I snuck one in. I'm also entering this in the ATC's and Cards with Attitude Anything Goes Challenge #14.
