MMM ~ Whimsey

I've made a house for Mixed Media Monday ~ I bought these chipboard houses from the US and absolutely love them. I inked them up first with pigment inks, then stamped randomly on the background. spritzed perfect pearls, then stamped the word 'imagine' a few times. I then stamped and embossed diamonds and swirls on the background. I used a sheet from Lisa's Altered Art to do the little fairy girl. Then finally used acrylics to distress the background a bit more.
