Adhered a pretty napkin to a canvas with matte multi-medium. Colored the flowers and butterfly with Silks acrylic glaze. Added a bit of sparkle with a Wink of Stella brush pen. Finally applied Inka-Gold to the edges of the canvas.
The background for this mixed-media canvas was done with Faber-Castell Gelatos. Art Impressions Chicken Wire was lightly stamped on the background with My Favorite Things Black Licorice Hybrid Ink. Modeling paste was applied to the canvas through The Crafter’s Workshop, Balzer Designs Mini Tiny Circles stencil.
The butterflies were cut out of 140 lb. Strathmore watercolor paper with an EK Success Butterfly punch. The coloring of the butterflies was done with Derwent Inktense pencils and a mixture of water and Ranger Perfect Pearls.
This canvas was inspired by a Jill Foster You Tube video.
Dropped leftover watercolor paints onto wet Strathmore watercolor paper. When dry, doodled the shapes that appeared.
Here is the second greeting that I created. I used 140 lb. Strathmore watercolor paper to create the card. Using my Cuttlebug, I die cut an oval in the front of the card. Elizabeth Craft Peel-Off Stickers were placed on the inside of the card. I used Tim Holtz Distress Markers to color the daisies and to create the sky and grass. I also created a matching envelope from 90 lb. watercolor paper.
