Mixed Media Canvas - 8" x 10"


I started this canvas back in June and fianlly got it finished up a few weeks ago (it's been an extremely busy summer).  It's for our daughter using her favorite color combination (purple & green) and her favorite quote. I was a lot of fun to make and she Loves it!!!!!!  Stencils and embossing paste to create the texture on the canvas.  Distress paints to paint it.  Stamping with Ranger's Archival Ink.  Viva Inka Gold for highlights. Ranger's sticky back canvas onto cardstock and then die cut for the flowers and butterflies, colored with Distress paint, and stamped with Ranger's Archival Ink.  Manila cardstock for the leaves - larger ones are stamped (Wendy Vecchi image), cut out, painted, embossed with an embossing folder and black and white pens used - the smaller leaves are die cut, sprayed with Dylusions, and sealed with fluid matte medium.  The quote is computer generated.  Viva green pearl pen dots, Ranger's white liquid pearl dots, and old pearl in the center of the rose, Viva purple pearl pen dots on the butterflies. Gold braided cording.
