My first canvas


I bought some blank canvases after seeing some of my talented friends making some fab projects with them. I decided to use my Paper Artsy stamps from the new Squiggly Ink range. I covered the entire canvas with Distress Ink in Shabby Shutters and then blended around the edges with Pine Needles. I then stamped the main image in Pine needles in the centre of the canvas. The writing could be a bit clearer but I couldn't go over it again, I would have made a mess. I then stamped the swirl random around the canvas followed by a couple of the hearts from the same plate. Next I took some Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle Paint in Lime Twist and painted the dots of each swirl, the arrow of the heart and sections of the door with it. I used Gold Krylon on sections of the other heart and parts of the door then dabbed it around the edges of the canvas. Finally I took a bottle top, drew around it then stamped the heart. I cute this out and placed it inside the bottle top, which I filled with Glossy Accents. I attached the bottle top, once dry, with silicone glue then spritzed the whole canvas lightly with Perfect Pearls mixed with water.
I will definitely be trying this again.
