I have a new canvas i made using the Prima Rossibelle Collection. This started off as a £3 wooden blank from The Works which i painted with DecoArt white gesso.
I covered the base with a Tim Holtz stencil Gothic and then painted it all over with DecoArt Crafters Acrylic Tutti Frutti and left it to dry.
I then spritzed it with DecoArt Magenta Media Mister which when it dried created the darker patches. I then rubbed DecoArt Titanium White Antiquating Cream around the edges. I then added another stencil over the top.
I cut the Prima Rossibelle papers up into strips and cut up the sheet with all the journal boxes on. I layered them up and added ribbon and different textured papers together and just experimented with the position before gluing it down.
I then added the chipboard shapes and added sequins around the base.
The papers are printed out and i covered a 6 x 6 card with the patterned paper. I cut out a 4 x 4 square and added my Animorph to the edge before printing off the free Steampunk Alphabet and creating the sentiments.
I thought she looked sassy so i found a sassy quote to go with the image.
I can now share my makes for Making Cards Magazine October issue. i made three cards using just Susan K Weckesser Inks and Stamps to create three different cards.
I used a die cut to create the round card shape but you can also use a tea saucer. Just make sure you leave a bit of the fold uncut otherwise it will fall to bits.
I used the Color Pop Mini inks and mixed them with water so that they can be used as a watercolor paint. I flicked water on with a brush to get the spotted effect and then used In Circle me to add texture.
I made a heart shaped card using the Xcut Heart Nesting Die. I mixed Kiss and Snow inks to create a salmon pink color which i used to paint the background. I used In Circle me again but colored in the circles separately.
To get that grungy edge around the image i roughly dabbed black ink around the edges and then colored it in after it had dried.
The last card i created the background using Clearsnap Color Pop Mini inks and the In Circle Me stamp
I used Bunny Hugs for the main feature and A Little Bit Washi for the sentiment.
