Craft Room Challenge No 4
It's now time for the new CRAFT-ROOM CHALLENGE and the challenge this time is BUTTERFLIES.
I decided to do a canvas for this challenge.
I painted the canvas with antique satin and oak leaf emulsion paint and coloured parts of it with dried marigold distress ink. Because it's difficult to stamp onto canvas I stamped the background images onto some tissue paper and attached it to the canvas. We had a parcel delivered in a fabulous green box, so I tore away a piece of it, peeled back some of the green covering to reveal the corrugated card underneath, before attaching it to the canvas I coloured the edges with the dried marigold. I attached some lace to the top and bottom of the canvas and I covered the sides with tissue tape, you can't see this on the photo. I stamped the main image onto some mountboard, coloured the edges with dried marigold and then triple embossed it, then I attached it to the canvas. I attached some butterflies that I'd stamped and cut out, some flowers that I'd made, some pearls and some leaves.
I used olive Archival ink for all the stamping.
The stamps that I used are
Stamps Away for the background and butterflies.
Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous for the main image.
