Canvas Atc's


Remember the pieces of canvas that I coloured previously here, well today I used some of them. I stamped the dragonfly image in versamark and heat embossed it with black wow powders. The images down the right are stamped in black stazon from a Traci Bautista stamp. I then coloured the wings and circles with distress inks, seedless preserve, dusty concord and faded jeans.


I again embossed the D stamp, top right and stamped another TH image down the left but it's very faded.  I stamped the PA image onto a separate piece of card, coloured it with Victorian velvet and added some wings. I tried to add some machine stitching, but had stuck the canvas to the backing with red liner tape and the needle kept getting glued up and the thread snapping, so I gave up!!

That embossed black turned out more grey than real black, but the canvas is giving a nice look to these ATC's.
