I received this gorgeous stamp set by Unity Stamps just before we went away on holiday and I've been itching to have a play ! The stamp is quite large so I thought a canvas would do it justice but I also wanted to make sure the image was really sharp so I decided to stamp on to tissue paper first and then transfer the image to the canvas after it had been painted.
This is the reverse of the image after I've done the detail painting. When you paint on tissue you always have to do the colours in reverse, so any shading needs to be done first then the lighter colours second. I then painted over the whole piece with the same colour that I had painted the canvas and lifted the image very carefully into place.
As the image is quite large it was a little tricky getting it onto the canvas without ripping it so I was quite pleased with only the few wrinkles I ended up with ! Doesn't she look gorgeous ! Once she was on the canvas I then painted over the edges of the tissue paper to flatten them down and blend them in.
I built up the colours layer by layer, keeping the darker colours to the edges and corners. I then used the TCW Onion Skin stencil with white acrylic paint in the areas with no embossing paste. The dotted lines are created using a Catalyst Silicone Wedge Tool that's been dipped into white acrylic paint and then dabbed on to the canvas.
I loved all the sentiments in the stamp set too so used most of them ! The gorgeous canvas flower is by Maya Road and I felt it was enough as I didn't want to detract from this gorgeous image.
To finish here's a close up so you can see the texture from the embossing paste.
I hope you've enjoyed today's project as much as I did making it !
