Hi friends,
Today I've got some goodies I made to decorate my classroom. I luuuuv anything Spanish (hmmm...wonder why ;) wink- so when I saw the Flamenco dancer stamps from La-La Land I went ga-ga!

Here's Flamenco Marci:
I used the traditional colors of Spain. I also used the LLL heart fan and die cut alphabet letters to spell "españa."

Here's Flamenco Luka:
I sponged the background with Distress Inks & ran it through the Air Mail Tim Holtz EF.

I couldn't stop I decided I wanted to make a scene with both of them in it:
I created an 8x10 picture as well. I used the Papel Picado stamp from Avery Elle to hang in the background. The balloons got a super coat of glossy accents. My coloring of these guys is much better the second time around *Ü*

Here's a closer peek at the dancers:
 So cute! I *heart* these little guys! It reminds me of my brother and I when we were little...not that we were Flamenco dancers, I meant the cute part *Ü* Lol.

Here's the final picture in a frame:
I removed the glass so I could bring some of the elements forward. I added the sun & cloud dies (also from LLL) to the corner which matched the pattern paper perfectly! LUV those happy coincidences *Ü* I added another sweet fan on the lower right corner. I wanted a white frame, but they didn't have one so I opted for this gold one.

Thanks so much for peeking today!
Tootles and have a great week!

  6. ¡Hola! Me encantan tus tarjetas con Marci y Luca ... ¿sabes qué? ... Yo tenía el privilegio de tomar clases de hacer tarjetas con Irina antes de que ella empezó su compañía de estampillas y se hizo muy famosa. Aprendí mucho en sus clases. Ahora no tengo tiempo para hacer artesanías pero estoy guardando fotos en páginas de Pinterest. Me parece que tú tienes gran talento para colorear y crear estas pequeñas obras de arte.

    Abrazos, Carol Feige
