Hi Everyone.............................I just want to say thank you to you all for continuing to follow me in my little crafty corner and for leaving such kind comments. They are really appreciated.
Below is a canvas that I made for a friends daughter's 21st Birthday and for my first DT piece at Craft Room Challenge. I just gave you a sneaky peek the other day, promising I would pop back with the 'How To' and here it is.
The Completed Canvas
I did take a photo of the embossed centre piece but it was rather fuzzy so I have not posted it. The card was brown and I ran it through my Bigshot using Tim Holtz Embossing die. I inked with walnut stain DI to age it and then distressed the edges with my TH Distressing tool. I took some treasured Gold Gilding wax and highlighted some of the emboss words like Blanchard and Paris
The canvas is 9" by 12" and was already prepared so I adhered some torn book pages, adhering them with Glue n Seal. Once dry I took Tim's new Bubble Stencil and a CW Butterfly stencil, covering them with texture paste.
The numbers are from Tim Holtz Sizzix Wordplay die and I adhered two together to give a more raised effect that you can view later :-)
A closer look at the numbers which I adhered with Glue n seal
Once dry I took Distress paint in Broken China, misting with water as I just wanted a wash, enabling the torn papers etc to be visible.
Once dry I took Vintage Photo and edged the canvas to give definition, particularly to the stencilled areas. I also applied Treasure Gold Gilding wax in Sapphire, Renaissance and White Fire, creating more definition.
Distress inks were used to stencil Tim Holtz Dot fade on the background and also CW Art is stencil
Alcohol Ink was applied to the metal Ideaology plate and an old key from my stash.
I also used Glossy Accents in the centre of the plate over the stamped image.
I love the facial images and sentiments in the TH Stampers Anonymous Classic Favourites set
( SCF005) I swiped with Distress Ink and then used Distress Markers on the lips and eyes
The little Butterfly was in my stash and added further dimension along with dome Adage tickets :-)
The recipient was absolutely thrilled, which makes it all so worthwhile.
This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge it is 'Anything Goes' where I would like to enter this project.
Thanks for dropping in
