Once upon a child

I mentioned last week about not having many stamps, well my order came and so far I have tried this one. She is my first artsy stamp, and I just love this little girl. I had to try a few times on paper to get her stamped right because I am just not used to stamping like this, then I colored her slightly with chalks.
I made this piece on a small flat canvas board. The gold swirly chipboard is from a sheet of swirlies for only $1 at Dollarama :) They only had the gold glittery ones when I was there. To make it blend in a touch I added some gold leaf pen around the edges then I didn't like it, so I sanded it off as much as I could without ruining it altogether then rubbed tea dyed ink over it.
