My Pink Designer Monthly Post....June

It is the time of the month when all the My Pink Stamper Design Team members get together and do a monthly post together over on Robyn's site. This month our challenge was to make something Bold and Bright. As soon as it was out of Robyn's mouth I knew what I was going to do--don't you love when that happens, LOL!! 
Actually, I took her words totally literally :)
I made a 8" x 8" canvas (I guess I have been doing those quite a bit lately). Just another little reminder to myself :)
I started by painting the canvas black and then adding all the cuts from there.
I stamped the dream BIG first and then i laid down the other stamps I wanted right on the canvas in the correct positions. I laid the acrylic block down over all three stamps and stamped them at once. EASY!
I used Mod Podge to glue down all my elements and then added an extra on the top of the entire canvas.
