Over at the Stampotique Designers Challenge site this weeks challenge is to show your new stash. Kaz is the lady who has chosen the theme, she said she is being nosey and wants to see what everyone got for Christmas!
The mini canvas i chose started out quite well.
I wet the canvas before adding the colours from the bars. As this was my first time using them it was a bit of a surprise when i saw the colours, so deep and rich.
Made a little block to place in the aperture of the canvas so i could achieve an even colour and for when i needed to adhere die cuts to the middle.
I used the Sara Neuman stamps to add text to the flowers, then i ran the flowers through an embossing folder which meant you couldn’t see the text any more. Also put the leaves through the Swiss Dots folder and cut out the wording i wanted to use.
Then i made a huge mistake and sprayed some of the Dylusions colour spray onto the embossed die cuts. don’t get me wrong i love the colour but there was no way you could see the text stamping over the flower. Decided i liked the look and carried on, added some Treasure gold to highlight the paisley design on the flower and on the dots of the leaves.
Also went over the canvas with some TG, it is quite addictive and add it to most things lol.
added a Tim Holtz hitch fastener to the centre of the flower and added the coiled wire before i screwed it into place.
Hope you like this mini canvas created with new stash, thanks for dropping by
