Serendipity Stamps Challenge #9

Hi there!

It is time once again for a new challenge on the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog. The challenge for this week is to create something for baby. I was looking to make something other than a card, so I dug through my stash and found a mini canvas.

I started by priming the canvas with Gesso and once that dried, painted my sky (all products are from Claudine Hellmuth's Studio Line for Ranger).

After that dried, I stamped the Cow jumping over the moon image (216G) directly onto the canvas. The cow was then paper pieced, using a variety of collections to get the colors I was looking for. The paper was adhered and then sealed with the Matte Multi-Medium.

I added the Magic Happens (371D) sentiment directly to the canvas.

A perfect addition for a little one's room!

Stop over to the Challenge Blog for all the details and to see the fabulous inspiration from the rest of the Design Team:

Serendipity's special this week is FREE SHIPPING for all Continental US orders of $10 or more! The special runs through Wednesday 4/10.

Have a great day!

  1. What a fun project! I love this paper piced cow on canves ,such a great idea! great idea Anya and beautiful gift for a baby's room.

  2. This is so sweet Anya! I love the bold colors, and wow all that fussy cutting - the pattern paper looks amazing as the spots on the cow - would have never thought of that!

  3. This is so creative the idea to make a canvas of that great cow jumping over the moon which is one of my favorite images. It looks so nice against the paint with the different patterned papers.
