Dt Project #2 by Minxy, Featuring:

 Gallerie Wrap Canvas Kit

Ello Snazzy fans, Here I am again as promised with my second canvas offering.
This time you may need to put on your shades as it's a bright one!

I went in a completely different direction on this one using many of the Dylusions products that Snazzys stock.
I started by stamping a line of bunting using the 'bags of buntingdylusions stamps, I masked them all off then started spraying the canvas with a mix of 'lemon zest', 'london blue' and 'postbox reddylusions ink sprays knowing that being primary colours I would get some green, orange & purple tones coming through too.

When the whole canvas was covered I felt it to be a wee bit bright {i'm not good with very bright colours} so I dulled them back with the new 'white linendylusions ink spray.

Next I used more stamps 'inbetweenies' and 'basic backgrounds' to build up my layers, I stamped in 'vermillion' & 'manganese blue' archival ink
I stencilled 'chipped sapphire' & 'ripe persimmons' distress inks through 2 of the dylusions stencils 'diamond border' and 'dotted flower'.

 I stamped 3 flowers from the Wendy Vecchi 'art from the heart' stamp set using 'cherry pie' & 'funky fuchsia' dylusions sprays for the heads and 'cut grass' & 'dirty martini' dylusions sprays for the stems and leaves by putting a bit of each spray on the craft mat and stamping into it, I wasn't sure if this was gonna work but it came out better than expected, I did pre-ink the stamp with versamark as wasn't sure how the spray would be on the rubber. 
I used a water brush to pull the colour across the whole image.
I also used the same colours and water brush to fill in the bunting.
I printed out the quote on my computer, and mounted it to the canvas with foam tape.
Astrid will be along on Monday with more canvas creativity, Thanks for taking the time to visit, I truly appreciate it. And don't forget 1 lucky person can win a little prize just for leaving a comment HERE.. after you've left me a comment obviously lol
Till next time
Stay Inky
