Collage Stamped Canvas

Hello!  Happy Wednesday...  Dawn Rene here to share a simple canvas that I made with the same collage stamped technique I used last week in my project. For this canvas I used the Butterfly Set, Paris Nights Background, Floral Silhouette, Don't Be Wishy Washi, and Faith Hope Love stamps! The inks are Tim Holtz distressed inks - Tea Stained, Wild Honey, and Forest Moss.

Here is a brief tutorial on how I decorated the canvas.

1. On some white cardstock I stamped a couple background stamps with Tea Stained distressed inks.

2. Then I layered on some other stamps with Wild Honey and Forest Moss distressed inks. Some of the impressions were second generation to make them lighter.

3. I cut out 12 - one inch squares from the stamped paper. Then I inked the edges with the distressed inks.

4. I cut out a piece of cardstock ~5" x 7" and distressed the edges. I glued the squares to the cardstock with Scrap Happy Glue creating a grid.

5. I layered the collage stamped grid on top of a piece of moss colored suede, distressed the edges of the canvas, and decorated the rest of the canvas with metal embellishments.

Here is the finished canvas again!
