My Canvas - You're a Star Dad.

Hello there,

Hope you've all had better weather than we have had today !  it rained all night and all day today.   The  gardens did need it, just not so much lol!    Hope you are all well and if you're not, I'm sending you some (((Hugs))), hope you felt them.

Tonight I would like to share another of my canvases, made for Imagination Craft's ODS shows on the 27th. & 28th. June 2017 and was shown.   I used two of their fabulous Mixed Media Art stencils on this canvas,  numbers  AS-466 and MA-22.   I have also used their fabulous Structure Paste - so....creamy and smooth!

Paint the canvas front with black Gesso.   Leave to dry.      Lay the background stencil on top and spread the Structure Paste over the design, using the metal spatula.

When dry, spread some of the gold Fabric Relief Paste over the top in the  odd place.    Next stipple a little silver gold Starlight paint on top, in a few places


Lay the car stencil onto some white card and stipple the black Starlight Paint through the design, using a stencil brush.     Cut out the car image and matt onto some black card.   Colour a slightly larger piece of white card with the silver gold Starlight paint, around the edges only, as that is all that will be seen, then matt the black card onto the gold edged card.   Punch a hole in each corner and add a gold brad in each hole.   Fix this to the bottom right of canvas with sticky foam pads, adding a little Magi-bond glue to help it adhere to the canvas.

Stamp 'DAD' using a  Versamark pad, onto black card and heat emboss with white embossing powder.   Stamp the letters again, cut out and fix to the original images, using sticky foam pads.   Glue 'DAD' to the top left of the canvas.

Cut out a star shape and paint with the silver gold Starlight paint, then matt onto a piece of black card.   Trim around the star, leaving a tiny border of the black showing.   Stamp 'You're a star' in the centre of the star, using a black ink pad, then fix to the top right of the canvas
using sticky foam pads.

Colour more white card with the silver gold Starlight paint and die cut a rosette using the Spellbinder's  die.   Cut out two pieces of the silver gold card to make the ribbon tails.  

Stamp 'Simply the Best' in the centre of the rosette, using a black ink pad.   Fix the rosette to the bottom left of the canvas.

That's this canvas finished.   Thanks so much for visiting my blog, I do appreciate it.     Have a great weekend, hope the sun shines on you all.   See you all again soon.

                                                               Love and rainbows,
