And they work so well together 😮
step 1: cover the canvas with an extra layer of gesso. Then sponge Colorbox Crafter’s Aruba and Limon in the middle of the canvas. Take a brush and water and delute the ink so they blend.
step 2: take the brick background stamp and stamp on the right hand side, first with Limon, the left side of the stamp on the front of the canvas and the rest on the chunky side. Do the same with Aruba.
Step 3: stamp with Limon the six hexagon background on the lefthand side.
step 4: stipple with a rough sponge some accents in the white parts. Then take Colorbox Craftyer’s snow and sponge on the coloured edges (this you can;t see on the photo, but in real life the colour snow does shimmer.
step 5: Make some accent dots with Smooch Glitz Gold Rush, do the same with the hexagons. After drying make some accents with a black fine liner.
step 7: take a piece of white paper and sponge with Crafter’s Limon and Aruba, after heatsetting put on a layer of Smooch Glitz Gold Lime twiste and tear the edges.
step 8: take a piece of craft paper and sponge some Crafter’s Aruba and Limon on it. Then stamp the winged boy on it with Stazon Black. Make with a brush direct from the ink pad some colour accents. Use Smooch Glitz to highlights the circles in the image. Cut out the image.
step 9: take some leftover packaging materials, tear some strips and sponge with Crafter’s Limon and Aruba.
step 10: take a piece of ribbon (this one is a white ribbon from May Arts) and sponge with Crafter’s Limon and Aruba. Take a rbush, wet it a little and blend the colours on the ribbon. Heatset with a heat tool (or let it air dry), when dry stamp the washi lines background on the ribbon with Crafter’s Limon. Stitch on one side of the ribbon and pull the thread, it automatically forms a flower.
step 11: I used a scrap piece of paper that was protecting my desk to stamp the text pure imagination on with Stazon and cut in two. Matt this two words on black paper.
step 12: to assemble the canvas with all the different parts. First glue on the teared piece of white paper with sponged colours on. Take some of the leftover craftpaper and tear some strips, glue this on the left and right side of the first torn paper. Then glue on the wooden stick. On top of that I glued the winged boy. And on top of that the two words. Position the two pieces of scrap packeging material and glue on with glue dots. Then make a little hole in the canvas and fasten the flower with a brad. Hammer some nails in the left upper and right bottom corner.
