Inks on Canvas

I love creating canvases! And this was one I made for a class I did using 1 stamp to create many different projects. The idea was to encourage peoples imaginations and help then look at their stamps in a whole new light, so that they get the most from them. One of my favourite techniques at the moment is using spray inks with stencils and masks. I especially like using pearlescent sprays just to give that little bit of va va voom!

In this project I used a variety of spray inks and masks to create the background and then painted the edge of the canvas with a co-ordinating colour to give it a neat finish. I then made 3 triple embossed tiles and stamped into them and layered onto co-ordinating mirri card and adhered to the canvas in a tryptych arrangment. Using a variety of sizzix dies, some of which were the Tim Holtz Alterations dies, I created the swirls and 3d roses from mirri card and old book pages. I then coloured the roses and leaves with inks and sprays and adhered to the canvas with silicone glue. To finish I added some obligitory bling (well, of course! I hear you shout! lol) and popped on 3 co-ordinating gems!
