Altered Family Canvas

Good day everyone! Today, I have another Quick Quotes project to share featuring the 8x10 chipboard Whimsical Tree on a canvas. This is only my 2nd canvas and I had a ball creating it.

I started by using bubble wrap and embossing ink to stamp the background and then embossed with WOW's Opaque Brite White embossing powder. I used the Whimsical Tree as a mask and painted over it with Radiant Rain Shimmering Mists from Luminarte in key lime, teal zircon, and ocean wave and then used a damp paper towel to wipe the paint off of the embossed circles. I lightly inked over the painted areas with Amaretto PowderPuff Chalking Ink.

I inked the tree with Amaretto PowderPuff Chalking Ink and aligned it slighlty to the right of the masked area so that the masking serves as a drop shadow. I cut flowers from Summer Samba 400 and added to the tree.

I used Summer Samba 200 to highlight the letter "L" in family, which happens to be the first letter of my last name.
Here's a close-up of the flawers on the tree.

I inked the sides of the canvas using Green with Envy PowderPuff Chalking Ink and Baja Blue PowderPuff Chalking Ink which matched the paint perfectly!!

Love what you did! I love using my bubble wrap stash for stamping, but I never thought to use it for embossing! Of course, now I have a big fat "DUH!" blazing in my mind right now. Thanks for the technique tip and sharing your beautiful canvas. By the way, I can't believe this is only the 2nd one you've tried!
