Good afternoon bloggers, I hope you are well and looking forward to the weekend? I wanted to share today's canvas with you. Last year I made a birthday card for my mum very similar to this. A friend of mine spotted it and asked me to recreate it on a canvas using a different colour scheme.
Here is how I made my butterfly bubbles. I first sprayed my canvas through the TCW microbial stencil with some goosebumps. Once dried I sprayed with Dylusion inks funky fushia and bubblegum pink and chased them around with a can of compressed air (you can do this with a straw but this is the easy option to save hyperventilating)
Lots of drying time required in this project, thankfully it is warm at the moment and I didnt have to wait too long. Once the ink had dried I needed to seal in the inks so that it didn't start to move around when I started to paint. I gave a couple of coats of clear spray matt sealer and...you got it more drying time.
Time to draw in the bubbles, once drawn i painted them with 3 shades of Paperartsy paints orchid, sherbet and snowflake. When the paint had dried I was able to use my Neocolour II crayons to add more depth to the bubbles.
Through the TCW tiny circles stencil I added some white and black dots around, in and out the bubbles. When these had dried I stamped on my image which is the Indigoblu butterfly. I heat embossed with clear powder. I painted the flutterby with some mica powders and blending solution.
