Is an Indian summer on it's way do you think?
I have been having a play with stamping on canvases - just little 4" square ones. Well one to be precise. I have a stamping colleague who is going to visit my stamp clubs & get the creating on canvas, so I thought I would have a go.
It's a very gentle little design as I was really seeing how different inks reacted on the canvas & how well different materials adhered to it. The background was brushed with Distress Inks - Crushed Olive & a Honey one (I've forgotten the name) leaving some light in the middle. Then I stamped the flourish flower with black archival ink, followed by punching some leaves out of thin paper & brushing Forest Moss Distress Ink through the cut out. Finally I glued some buttons over some of the stamped flowers & coloured the rest in with gel pens. A peel off butterfly to finish - which I had to use glue stick on to make it stay stuck & that was coloured in with gel pens too. I will probably add some cord around it & make a little hanging loop.
I enjoyed doing this & it didn't actually take all that long. I will do another one but probably be a little more adventurous next time.
Thank you for visiting my little blog I hope you will call again.
'Bye for now.
