Hello, and thanks for stopping by my blog today.
I love working on canvases. The work we do as card makers and paper crafters is often more art than card, and in this case I wanted to try something that I could use as a home decor piece.
The stamp set Birthday Blooms is one of my absolute favourite sets for colouring. I used Shimmery White card stock, and stamped half of the blooms in Tempting Turquoise ink, and the other half in Dapper Denim ink.
I coloured inside the petals using a number 2 round brush and used the squeezed-together ink pads as my palette, drawing some of the colour from the stamped lines to soften the edges.
After the flowers had dried, I added some Crushed Curry with my marker to the centre of the two large blooms.
I cut out all the blossoms, and used some olive green felt to cut out the leaves with the Pretty Pines thinlits dies.
I adhered everything onto a 6" x 6" piece of Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper with the lovely Bokeh Pattern, which I had adhered to an 8" x 8" pre - primed canvas.
I popped up a sentiment, "Thankful Grateful Blessed" from the Paisleys and Petals stamp set, which I had white heat embossed onto an old olive piece of card stock.
To give everything a shimmer, I added accents with a clear Jelly Roll gel pen.
This art piece now has pride of place in my entry way, and I love it!
Thanks for visiting. I hope you like this project idea.
