Butterfly Canvas

This canvas came together so easily and I love the outcome.  The butterfly has so much wonderful detail. My canvas showcases my new A4 "Nature Elements" #267 from AALLandCreate. Our stockists can be found HERE.
I began by painting the canvas board with Byzantium Fresco Finish Paint and I then added some delicate stamping using my A7 Stamp "Heartfelt" #304, stamping with paint just to lift the background a little.
I adore the detail in the butterfly and my Gel Press Print using Olga's Profusion Stencil #84 to give some background detail.
For my Gel Press print I used Fresco Finish Paints Khaki, Sage and Byzantium. I also incorporated some delicate splatters of white paint using my Posca Paint Pen.
I added dimension to the butterfly wing along with added dimension to the pen nib body, incorporating soft silver wire for added texture.
I added the sentiment, which I love from my A5 Stamp Set "Thankful Petals" #272. To highlight the sentiment further I also drew around the edges with a grey Inktense Pencil.
I kept the embroidery hoop natural as I love the rustic feel that it gives to my piece.

Thanks so much for stopping by, Tracy x x

The gorgeous butterfly really takes centre stage on your beautiful canvas. I love the Byzantine colour (one of my favourites at the moment) and the embroidery hoop really draws the eye in. Love this! Hugs, Anne xxx
