Mixed media canvas by Karen

Before I share Karen's gorgeous canvas, I just wanted to let you know that our kit will have a slight delay again this month.  We expect to reveal our April Scraps of Darkness kit on April 2nd.

And on to a little gorgeousness!


Karen was creating with our March "Michelle's Mechanical Madness" kit and add ons for this canvas.

She started with the 5 x 7 Artist's Canvas from the Creativity Add-On, and paper from the Kaisercraft Betsy's Couture Collection from the kit for the background.
She distressed the paper with some Tim Holtz Vintage Photo ink.  She then used the Prima 6 x 6 stencil "Lace" from the Elements Add On with some Studio 490 Wendy Vechi Metallic Gold Embossing Paste.  Before it dried, she applied Lindy's Stamp Gang Embossing Powder "Cleopatra's Copper" (from a previous kit) and then dried it.  
She stamped the Prima Finnabair "Now Is The Time" stamp from the Creativity Add On onto the canvas and then colored in some areas of the stamp with Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pens Copper, Gold, and Silver (from a previous kit).  
For the Blue Fern Studio Cog and Gears chipboard that were in the Elements Add On, she first inked them with some Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Vintage Photo.  She then sprayed them with the Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst "Cajun Carnelian Red" from the Main Kit.  After being sprayed, the piece split into several pieces which she loved, because she was able to take a layer and add it flush to the canvas and wrap it around the edges...perfect!  
She also used the Petaloo Botanica Collection flowers from the Floral Add On, and some of the Fabscraps metal filigree pieces and the Prima Say It In Crystals from the Main Kit to finish it off.

Here are a few close-ups of this gorgeous canvas:
