BLOSSOM CANVAS tutorial by Carol

Hello again. Carol here once more...sneaking in a little extra tutorial for this month as I get next month off! Today I'll show how I produced this pretty framed canvas.

I started with a 5x7 canvas board which I'd painted with black gesso. Using the Weaving and Square Links stencils I added detail to the corners with texture paste.

Once dry I dry brushed some hint of mint acrylic paint over the board, adding a second coating over some parts.

Then it was time to add some more texture using various stamps from the Mixed Media Elements set using Archival ink.

Using the same stamp set I did some heat embossing with white detail EP and silver Metal Magic.

My sentiment came from the Blossom like a Butterfly set, stamped onto tissue paper and heat embossed with black detail EP then applied with medium gel.

To finish I stamped and heat embossed two butterflies onto card and fussy cut and after adding additional colour attached them with silicon gel. Using the Flutters and Splatters stencil I added some smaller butterflies with ink and Radiant Gel.

Love all the textures and dimension on this canvas...the frame was a cheap one from the local DIY store.

I hope you've enjoyed today's tutorial and hope you'll join me again next time.
