Mixed Media Monday - Whimsy

I chose "whimsy, whimsey" for the theme over at Mixed Media Monday this week, because I love all the whimsical things people are doing. This piece was done on corrugated cardboard (thanks Amazon, grin) and I love the way it painted up. The ridges in the card seemed to catch the paint a little more and made a very interesting background. The other fun thing about this piece is the B that I stamped. I used a foam letter B taken from a child's alphabet puzzle piece, that I picked for $2 from a $2-type shop. So keep your eyes out for that type of thing, these stamp just as well as foam stamps, at a fraction of the cost!

I am forever foraging through my children's old toys (sometimes not so old, to their dismay) to find stamps and collage pieces. Great tip! A delightful piece, Diane and a fabulous topic.
