Chocolate and Roses Canvas

Hello and welcome,  
Kay M here today with my Chocolate and Roses canvas board. The  chocolate comes from the gorgeous ChocolateBox Megaflakes and the roses with the Rose stencil and colours chosen to give a vintage romantic feel to highlight this month's heart theme.

 Fine texture paste was thinly spread over a 18cmx24cm canvas board to give a rough plaster texture.  When dry, more paste was used through the Rose stencil across the middle of the board and dried,  then  whole board was painted with Gee-Sso-Goodwhite.   Pheasant Bronze, Townhouse Teal and Marshmallow paints was applied in patches and brush blended into each other.  When dry, Dinkie Script was randomly stamped over and the roses highlighted with a brown Archival ink.    Gee-Sso-Good white was dry brushed over the canvas for a softer look. 

Super Thick Slap it On was mixed with a little Rose Bronze Luscious powder and this was applied through the Family stencil onto tissue paper. When dry,  individual words were added to the canvas with Matt Slap it On.

The Dinkie Heart stamp was stamped with FlitterGlu on card and then covered with Chocolate Box Megaflake.  The heart was then cut out, given a wash of Rose Bronze Luscious then clear embossing powder applied.    Another heart was stamped out using Brown Archival ink on a sheet of card which had been painted with Rose Bronze Luscious powder, that was then cut out.   Chocolate Box Megaflake's were also applied to a heart frame.  

The canvas was finished by adhering the hearts with lace trim, die cut arrows and a feather embellishment as shown.   

I do hope you get inspired to join in our heart theme this month and enter the blog challenge! 

Take care,  Kay M
