I think canvas and Distress Stickles may be my new favorite thing! Thank You Jennifer McGuire!! It's still a little blingy without being over the top... lovin' it!
Anyway... This time I primed my unbleached canvas with Gesso and let it dry. Then I used the Hero Arts "Heart Winged Butterfly" stamp and Tea Dye distress ink to stamp on the canvas. The impression was a little too crisp for me, so I spritzed it with a mini-mister full of water until the ink started to bleed a little. Then I cut out my butterfly, inked the edges with Tea Dye and added distress stickles in "Scattered Straw".
For the card I free-handed a curve on the blue cs, then used deco scissors to mirror the curve in white. I put some green cs inside the card and inked the edges of everything with Tea Dye and a blending tool. Then I stamped the sentiment and flourish from the Hero Arts set "Dot Flourish" (again with Tea Dye) and colored in parts of the flourish with Prisma pencils. I put pop dots behind the butterfly wings to make them a little 3D, used some Prima staemens as antennae and added some Basic Grey pearls for the body of the butterfly.
