Canvas Art

So this week on Splitcoast Stampers in their tutorial of the week is stamped canvas. It's quite cute and I realized that I had about 20 (seriously) of these 4x6 mini canvases hanging around my craft space. I was going to do letter art with them- but I got bored of them- and to be truthful, they weren't as cute as this! All the images are from Pink Cat Studio with their amazingly cute Lily and Billy collections. The images here are from Enchanted Lily and Lily Valentine Fairy. The images are crisp and easy to color. I used Stazon ink and tho it didn't come out QUITE as crisp as I'm used to, it still worked well as art. I used my Stampin' Up watercolor pencils and blender pens to color in the images and then used Stickles to highlight different areas with glitter glue. I also spread the color over the edges (like an inked edge) and used a spounge paint brush and blender pens to blend the color and then highlighted with Stickles
I finished them off with some inexpensive thin ribbon from Michaels and flowers from Prima. I punched holes using my Crop-A-Dial big bite and weaved ribbon thru them to use them as wall hangings- I think these would be cute to hang in a child's room. I am going to try some more using different images- I have Pink Cat Studios "Billy" plate and I am excited to use that for more 'boy-ish' ones. I also have some Inkadinkado clear stamps- the monkey ones (whatever they are called- I forget!)
To do the 6x6 one, I didn't have a canvas, so I used watercolor paper, cut to 6x6 and used Mod Podge to adhere it to a 6x6 peice of chipboard. I used the same idea, but used 2 images from Enchanted Lily, and had space to put my daughter's name. The letters are 1 inch and cut from Cricut's Storybook Cartridge and topped off with glitter.
Hope you liked these :) Take care!
