The Hibiscus Flowers keep on Blooming!

Designs By Ryn - Hibiscus Flowers and Moon Wing Moth Set


Here is the updated canvas with the new colour Moths. I think they blend in better with the overall design. Have left the original on - what do you think?
I used a canvas board which I primed with Gesso and left to dry. Used Wendy Vecchi modelling
paste to put through stencils after adding colour
I stamped a Moth onto the canvas and also some to cut out. Should have used a darker EP to make the Moths outline show up ..... think I stamp out another   couple.Flicked a little red ink and added micro beads for a bit more texture..
                          Here's Ryns link...
I bought my Moth Stamps from Oyster
I am posting this piece of art into Ryns Customer Challenge for March

Hibiscus Canvas with my new Stamps from Design by Ryn

Designs by Ryn Canvas
Today I share a canvas which I have just completed using the Fab - u - lous new Hibiscus stamps from Designs by Ryn
I used a serviette with a pretty design on it, separating into a single ply sheet. Gesso on the canvas and then carefully laid the sheet over it teasing into place with a paintbrush and more Gesso.
Stamped and heat embossed Hibiscus stamp with WOW Platinum EP.
Coloured with Aqua Spectrum Pens and then cut - (yes a labour of love!!) but worth every snip!
Mounted into place and that is it.....thanks for having a look...

My Workshop Canvas at last!

Only one flower missing ....thought I would post my Workshop Canvas
Have got round to completing my canvas from Karen's Workshop at J&C Creation's last Friday..
There is a flower missing as I thought it was air dried clay and on going to paint it the following day it was still droopy so had to bake it off!

Sweet Poppy Stencils

One of the beautiful stencils from the latest release from Sweet Poppy Stencils....
Used pearlescent paste and sprinkled green embossing powder over the leaves whilst wet. Left to dry and then painted flower with a Wink of Stella Pen.  Then heated the embossing powder. I did it this way to avoid bubbling. Heating the paste  gives a lovely effect ( but not on this piece this time!)
Use a decorative die to layer up to finish.
Here's the link for the stencil information or to buy.

Have a few half started cards and projects where I lost the way so have decided to look at them again...
Layered the Poppies up and glazed them after colouring with Spectrum Pens.
Crystal Sparkles for the highlights and matted onto to black  and a white base

Think this is a stamped image from one of Eileen's Workshops quite a long time ago . Stamped a spare image for homework. It's definitely being handed in late!!
thank you for stopping by today
