A Corner of Heaven

This week at Gingersnap Creations the supply challenge is to use Mists. (GC98). Continuing with the Far East monthy inspiration, I wanted to make a serene peace and when I saw this Buddha stamp from Inkadinkado, I had my inspiration.
Using a tree limb mask, I sprayed a mist of Ranger Distress Ink and Perfect pearls in the sky blue and a rosy red. I stamped the birds and the lilac paper lanterns, also from Inkadinkado. I misted another paper with golds and green and double stamped the Buddah to create a bronze statue feel. Found some shiny tags with calligraphy  in my stash, so I put acrylic paint on them to soften them. I threaded some vintage metal thread between the tags and lanterns. Over painted the background birds and the Buddah with pearlized white paint for depth. Added the shimmer ribbon folded edge. Made the little word snippet banner with "A corner of Heaven". Now for the fine details, yes there are pearls and little flowers. The fun thing is that these petite flower decals are actully for your nails! LOL. I found them in a clearance rack and knew I would use them for my art!
Enjoy your corner of heaven.
Till next time, gerri
