Butterfly Canvas

Today I have a canvas for you using my stamps from AALLandCreate. You can find a lits of Stockists HERE.
For this piece my butterfly is the focal image set against a wondefully textural background. You can find my butterfly stamp set HERE.

I opted for a canvas this time around painting the background with Buff Acrylic Paint by Dina Wakley, I adore this colour especially combined with the Sedona used at the bottom of my canvas.
I added lots of texture to the bottom of my canvas, applying texture paste over Kassa's stencil #18 which I have highlighted further by rubbing back some of the paint to give a vintage feel and scribbling a Stabilo All pencil around the edges of each letter.
I stamped my butterfly into clay which worked fabulously and all the detail from the stamp still remained visible, I was so pleased. I allowed the clay butterfly to air dry before any painting.
I also incorporated a wooden heart, applying Texture Paste over the heart, applying over Autour de Mwa's stencil #21 to add even more texture to my piece. I painted the heart with a coat of Buff Paint, dried this layer with a Heat Tool and then applied a light layer of Sedona Acrylic Paint, dried lightly and then wiped back some of the paint.
I incorporated some background stamping to my canvas, using my A4 Layered Grunge stamp and also included some cotton threads, vintage pen nib and a quote chip. I also added a further clay piece using a Prima Mould.

These are the products I have used for my piece.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
