Butterfly Canvas

Hello!  Today I would like to share this canvas I created using Dare 2B Artzy Stamps and Artzy Doodle Papers! I started this project using a premade made (as in the text was already added) canvas that I picked up at Michaels. I first stamped the flower from the Tangle Jumpstart set a couple of times on scrap paper.  I cut those stamped images out to create some masks to use while stamping on my canvas. I then stamped the Flower from the Tangle Jumpstart onto my canvas, masking the flowers as needed to create the background. I chose to use Archival Ink since I knew I was going to be using some very wet watercolor inks.  I then painted my flowers using ColourArte's Twinkling H2Os.  I chose the Twinkling H2Os because they add transparent color that allowed that text to show through! Here is a close up of the flowers.

  While my watercolors were still wet I added splatters of color all over the canvas.  I added my sentiment which was printed on piece of cardstock with decopage. I then used a small butterfly punch to punch the butterflies out from the Artzy Doodles papers! I folded each butterfly and adhered only the "body" of the butterflies to give the appearance of flight.  I added a few touches of glass bead paste through a Crafter's Workshop stencil just to add a bit of clear, sparkly texture.  I hope you enjoyed this project!
