Framed Heart Mini Canvas

Hello! Dawn Rene here to share a mini canvas I made using The Rubber Cafe's Framed Heart stamp. This stamp has an Zentangle feel to it. I love it!

Here is a tutorial on how I put together my mini canvas!

1. My initial thought was to color in the Framed Heart stamp with Copic markers. But I really wanted to try something different - so I decided to go with watercolor pencils!

2. I stamped the Framed Heart stamp on water color paper with brown archival ink.

3. I colored in the Framed Heart stamp with water color pencils from Close to My Heart in earthy tones - Olive, Autumn Terracotta, and Desert Sand.

4. I used a small paint brush to wet the paper and blend the colors.

5. I added some texture by heat embossing Shabby White Embossing Enamel on the heart.

6. Next I created a frame from grunge board which I colored with various Tattered Angels inks.
