Any one up to some crafting today? What are you all working on?
I'd like to share a canvas I made yesterday using the beautiful
True Friends stamp set available from
I used different stencils and texture paste to create some dimension to the blank canvas
I then blended Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick and Squeezed Lemonade distress inks all over the canvas
Using a mixture of Smokey Grey and Black Onyx Versafine ink I stamped random textures around the canvas, holding each stamp in the palm of my hand. I find this creates a more random distressed effect ideal for mixed media
Versafine black onyx ink was used to stamp the main outline image
Acrylic and Dyna paints were painted onto the solid stamp and these were stamped over the outline image. I heat blasted the flower before repainting and stamping the solid stamp to create more depth and dimension
Gilding wax was dragged from the edges randomly to create a metallic shimmer feel
To finish I highlighted some areas with a white gel pen.
Hope you like today's make
