Hi folks! Caroline Elliam with you today to share a canvas I made with coloured stamped images with fabulous Lindy’s Stamp Gang products. I was inspired a lot by a card I’ve seen on Pinterest here but I couldn’t find the author.
Let’s see how I created it!
First, I took a white cardstock and sprayed water on it.
I chose my lighter color, Flat fabio pineapple paradise and I made some splatters on it.
Adding more water and splatters randomly, I blended the colours together. Here you can see that I added the Starburst Magnolia magenta gold spray.
Set aside and let dry or accelerate the process with your heat gun. You should have something like this at the end.
Now choose your favorite stamps and go ahead and stamp over your background with a permanent ink.
Cut out your stamps. I decided to stamp extra designs all over the cardstock to use it all up, that way I have leftovers for future layouts.
I’ve embossed wood feathers with Purely white before starting my canvas, this way, I’ll be ready to glue everything without stopping my creative process.
To start my canvas, I coated it with a thin coat of gesso first and then I put modeling paste with a stencil to add texture.
Once dry enough, I splattered clean water on top of my canvas to rub off a part of inks. I love the look it gives.
I added some droplets of Flat Fabio Carribean Blue and then it was time to play with my stamped images to create an harmonious piece of art.
Here’s a closer look of my canvas.
I have filmed a video to showing how you can make this, you can watch it below on the Lindy’s Stamp Gang YouTube Channel.
