{Spotlight Project} Shirley Stamps on Cotton Canvas



I've been playing with powders on cotton canvas.  I started by dropping Paper Artsy Infusions onto cotton canvas and spritzed them with water, then let the colours spread out, making a lovely effect.




Then I stamped the stems and leaves from Deepti's Blooming Buds set using Versafine Onyx Black.


Once the ink was dry I added a hint of colour with Peeled Paint Distress Ink.


Then adhered it to my card front.  I put the tape onto the card then laid the panel onto the card.  If you try to put the tape onto the back of the cotton, you risk pulling the panel out of shape.


I did the same thing again, this time using pinks.


Paper Artsy Infusions are similar to Brusho powders but they also contain walnut stain which gives the dark variation in colour.


Again, I added a hint of colour to the leaves and stems.


Then mounted it onto my card.


These cards are great for notelets, or you could add a sentiment of your choice.
