Decided to make a multi-media Panel from a canvas board using stamps from Indigo Blu ..... This is for sale in my Etsy Shop - Harpies Crafty Corner ......
The canvas panel is 7 x 10 inches.
I started by applying a mixture of Blue and green matt acrylic paints around the perimeter with a brush.Once dry I applied some thinned down white Gesso to dull down the colours.
I then started on the central panel which was made from card and coloured this with multiple washes of the same acrylic paint colours until happy with the overall effect.
I stamped the Balloon twice on white card with black Archival ink and coloured one with watercolours and a waterbrush, giving it a coat of glossy accents for effect. The second one was coloured with blue & grey watercolours to act as a distant shadow.
I then stamped the words Courage & Hope and matted these on blue card edging with black and gold pens and glazing with Glossy Accents. All these elements were put on one side for later.
I then coloured two lots of white Texture Paste with blue & green acrylic paints, applying these to the panel through a stencil with a palette knife. Once dry I stamped some swirls in sepia Archival Ink and drew in some diamonds from a stencil with Inktense pencils drawing this into the diamonds with a waterbrush. I stamped some dots in blue & green Versafine Clair Inks adding some further accents with white and gold Posca pens.
Some torn Washi tape strips were applied randomly. At this stage the panel was matted on blue card and attached to the Canvas base with gel medium. I then added some glass glitter spots in green and blue as shown.
Final touches were to apply the balloons, the top one on foam pads and the words also on foam pads. The edge of the decorated panel was edged in gold with a pen ......
