~ A Card for a Friend ~

My project that I made this week for Scrapbook Studio is a canvas card...I wanted to play with some mixed media's and the full range of Tim Holtz Seasonal Distress Inks. That means that there are 12 colours on this canvas!

I used some images from the Tim Holtz Grunge board Mixed Minis from my DT Pack.

I used the wings, hearts, stars, hinges and some flourishes. They were glued to the canvas, and covered with a layer of Gesso.

I made my own resist canvas by applying Multi Medium Matt to my Creative Flourish from Layers of Colours. After stamping it on the canvas, I dried it with my Heat gun. I used the Sewing Room Alteration Die from Tim Holtz for the Dress Form. And then I had fun with the inks! I used the Seasonal Re inkers to make my mists that I used.

The heart has some micro beads on it and a layer of crackling medium.

The dress form is coloured with Distress inks using the applicator tool. I am really happy with the way the stamped image came out after the inking!

The wings were also covered with micro beads and a layer of crackling medium.

I am not a great mixed media artist...but I just might play with these techniques some more, for they are really fun to do...

Have a great day...and stay safe!
