Create With Your Soul Canvas - Thursday DT Post for Visible Image Stamps

This week I made a canvas focusing on the Classic Face and Create With Your Soul stamps. I stamped the two stamps onto white cardstock using Archival Ink in Sepia, then sprayed them with Lindy's Stamp Gang mist in Breakfast Club Blue to tone in with the canvas. I misted the canvas with Breakfast Club Blue and Ponderosa Pines Olive, making drips and splats and generally having fun building up the layers. When I was happy with the background I glued the Classic Face and sentiment stamps down and then had fun playing with flowers, metal pieces and wooden cogs, building up around the edges of the canvas.

I learned a lot of this technique from classes taken with Finnabair, but for this one I completely covered all the embellishments (except the fun lightbulb!) in gesso. This gave me the textures of the items and not the colors and I was able to go in with my sprays and use a paintbrush to paint on more color. I really love the texture this brings to the canvas!!  For the background, I used the gorgeous Ripped Fishnet stamp and my all around favorite script stamp Bronte Border to add more depth and detail to the canvas.

I really love how this turned out and I hope you enjoyed looking! If you like any of the stamps, simply click on the link or image to head to the shop. Today is the last day to enjoy FREE worldwide shipping on your order, so hop on over!!
