IndigoBlu Butterfly Canvas
Firstly I primed my canvas with white gesso, and while that was drying I created a patterned paper using one of the new Limor Webber/IndigoBlu stamps in Hawaii Blu Stazon Ink.
I ripped this and added sections to the now dry canvas, rolled the edges back and added Peacock Feathers distress Ink around the edge of the papers, and also the canvas itself. When that has dried I added a Doily and frame, then covered the whole thing in a coat of gesso. The Distress Ink ran a little into the white of the canvas, which gave it a shaded look, which I love.
I'm pleased with the finished result :) so am going to enter it into the Use Something New Challenge at Country View Crafts
