Stampendous & Dreamweaver Bloghop

Today is the final day of the Dreamweaver Stencils and Stampendous blog hop.  I was inspired to continue playing with the canvas panels from yesterday.


 This lady started from a panel coated in gesso and a layer of misted cherry blossoms.

I used the Cherry Blossom Stencil from Dreamweaver and spritzed the Dark Cherry Glimmer Mist onto the canvas.  I had to mask around the stencil to protect the rest of the canvas.

I stamped the lady image onto the canvas using black ink and heat embossed it with black embossing powder.  I spritzed the same glimmer mist onto white cardstock and stamped the the flowers using black ink. I stamped them 12 times and cut them out to create the layered flowers.  I stamped two small butterflies on the same background and highlighted them with the white gel pen.

I stamped the sentiment on tissue paper and used decoupage to attach to the canvas.

For my second project I used the Steampunk stencil and placed it on an old book page.

I used the Dreamweaver Embossing Paste (White) to stencil the image onto the textbook page.

After the image dried I spritzed brown, blue sprays over the surface.  I then used gold paint to highlight the embossed areas.  I mixed in images from the Stack Art kits along with the sentiment form the coordinating clear stamps.  I added a few stamped images on tissue paper which were decoupaged to the surface and blended with more sprays and inks.

  36. OK Suzz, I'm going to just be honest here - your first canvas panel really didn't do much for me. It's nice, but it just didn't move me. Then your next project appeared as I scrolled down a little and WOW! I love it! I'm not really a big steampunk-y person, but your use of color and texture make this so beautiful. Very creative, and I absolutely love the corrugated cardboard backing! 5stars!
