A Canvas

Good morning Lovelies and what a beautiful morning it is down here on the South East coast, it's chilly but the sun is shining :) oh happy days.

So I got these fab new dies designed by Seth Apter for Spellbinders, very grungy and different, I've been itching to get the time to play with these, what with Easter cards and some DT work to do I finally managed a little dabble last night, I made a small 5"x7" canvas

I used Fossilized Amber and Carved Pumpkin distress ink direct to canvas to lay a base colour down then Brusho's spritzed with water to create the dripping, I dry brushed Black Dylusions paint here and there to tone the brightness down, I then flicked Black and White ink over and dried, my dies I cut out using Centura pearl card and on the reverse side I used Black gesso on the drippy one then rubbed a copper gilding wax over it, the other die cut I used a gold rust effect texture paste by Finnabair Art Basics and then once dry used a gold gilding wax here and there, I used various circle style stamps with Black Archival ink, a few more splatters with white and black ink, I then stencilled on my sentiment with Archival ink, adhered my die cuts, added glittery gold pen highlighting some of the circles and then Finnabair Art Ingredients Melange Art Pebbles, I finished off with a copper gilding wax around the edge.

I hope you like my Canvas, I really enjoyed creating it, thank you for spending the time to visit, have a great day xx Zoe xx
