Canvas art can be the perfect gift.

As much as I love making cards, every once in a while, I need to try something different. With my first craft show right around the corner, I wanted to create something other than a card. I purchase a set of four 4x4 canvas boards (these do not have the hallow wooden mount). I decided to stamp an image and color it with copics. I've never tried this, but thought it would look really cool to make these into magnets.


Step One:

Using my Misti Original Size Stamping tool, I first stamped t he sentiment on the canvas using Gina K amalgam ink. I had to heat set it so it would not smear when I placed masking tape over the sentiment to stamp the image. Because the canvas was not a smooth surface, I did need to restamp at least 3 times.


Step Two:

Copics are amazing. I used copics to color this image. Because the wedding dress is white, I used C-0 to just create a mild shadow (but you can't see it in this image). I used B99, B97 and B95 to color in the groom's suit. For the floral portion of the bride's dress, i used a simple red marker (R29) to color in the flowers in the back of her dress. Although it was pretty, the canvas still looked a little too simple. So I didn't stop there.


Step Three:

Adding some distress ink to the edges of the cavans and then splattering the same ink around the image, gave this piece a little more dimension. For the final touch, I added a golden stickles to the center of each flower. This added the much needed texture and bling. Before even packaging this, a dear friend wanted it for her daughter's upcoming wedding and how could I deny her. This was made with love and I can only hope that the new bride and groom love it too!
