Soooo many photos!
I have been wanting to make something for this months challenge over at
Cards are acceptable, but the DT always make such glorious altered pieces.
So here is my effort :D
I started with an old canvas that already had loads of texture...
and covered it with layers of paint/alcohol inks...
and gesso through stencils.
When dry i used matt medium to apply floral tissue paper.
(actually it is a torn up serviette)
Next step was to select papers to tear and ink(distress)
before layering again with medium.
The flowers were disappearing so I cut some with my
Tattered Lace dies...
coloured with markers and embossing powders.
I don't use the powders very often as they make me cough
so I stamped and embossed direct to the canvas too.
When embossed the roses lost all their detail, so I over-stamped
with permanent ink...
before using silicone glue(which also makes me cough) to attach to canvas.
I added gold embossing powder to frame the canvas...
Loving all this yummy texture :D
Enjoy :D XXX
