Mini Indian Elephant Canvas (by Anne)

Good morning. Today I am sharing a mini canvas for this month’s texture theme.

Materials:
  • Gothics Fragments, Texture Fragments, Indian Elephant, Words of Inspiration stamp sets
  • Mandala Stencil (Martha Stewart) and fossil stencil (Andy Skinner)
  • Mini stretched canvas (21 X 14.5cm), watercolour card (20 X 14cm), scrap stamping card
  • Mod Podge (Matte)
  • WOW embossing powder (Gold detail)
  • Ink sprays with mica – archival type, waterproof when dry (teal, pale pink)
  • Inkpads: archival dye (teal), Versamark
  • Sakura Starlite pens – archival glitter (green, blue, pink, purple)
  • Coloured pencils (greys)
  • Viva Décor Glitter Paste (603 teal)
  • Microbeads (pink multi)
  • Alcohol marker (teal) and fine tipped marker (cerise)
  • Acrylic paint (cerise pearl)
  • Decorative corner punch
  • 3D glue gel
How it was done:
  1. Spritzed the watercolour card with water, teal and pale pink inks. Laid down the fossil stencil while wet and left to dry overnight. The ink gets pulled under the stencil by capillary action giving a negative image.
  2. Randomly stamped the background with the texture stamp and teal archival ink.
  3. Stamped the gothic arch and sentiment with Versamark and heat embossed with the gold powder. Coloured with the glitter pens and fine tipped pink marker.
  4. Applied glitter paste with a palette knife through the mandala stencil. Whilst wet dropped on some microbeads – pressed lightly into surface. Dried overnight.
  5. Stamped elephant with Versamark onto scrap stamping card and heat embossed with gold powder. Coloured with glitter pens and grey pencils, Cut out and shaped slightly. Glued to card with 3D glue gel.
  6. Punched corners and outlined with teal marker.
  7. Coloured outer edges of canvas with acrylic paint.
  8. Glued the card to the canvas with Mod Podge. Also applied over the top to seal the image. Note: I thought that my pink fine liner was archival but it was water soluble! Hence it bled and smeared across the canvas when I applied the Mod Podge – eeeek! However it did add to the texture effect – tee hee.

  6. A fabulous canvas Anne and the bright and beautiful colours suit it perfectly. I love the gothic and Texture Fragments and the stencilling too and the gold embossing and glitter paste and micro beads add lots of extra texture and interest. x
