Lynne Perella Canvas Inspired by Carol Quance

Phew, I made it! A combination of going to bed late and getting up early! I adored the canvas Carol Quance made, which you can see here, and I have used very similar elements. I used an 8 x 8 canvas as I didn't have a 6 x 6 box canvas and I wanted deep sides. I used similar colours to Carol although mine looks quite pink in the photo and is actually more orange IRL. I used some Zesty Zing in the centre as that is where my main image was going to be and I thought it would highlight it. I used copper Inka Gold over the stencilling but would love to get some more Treasure Gold as I am quite hooked now!

I coloured the Lynne Perella image from LP 01 with Distress Inks as for the card yesterday and added a shrink plastic pediment, this time stamped with the script mini Mini 26. I didn't have a die for the wings as Carol had, so I used some chipboard wings which I triple embossed in gold and then stamped into the molton ep with the script stamp and then highlighted with Treasure Gold in Ice Fire. I made a shrink plastic version of the same main image using Inktense pencils to colour.

As I had a larger canvas I wanted to fill in the edges so I went over the whole canvas and the sides with the script mini, and the small script from LPC014 in various shades of ink to match the paint colours used to create depth, and then used the small script in black and in Snowflake. I tried using Picket Fence Distress Paint but this didn't work well so I had to go over it again with the Fresco - Yay for Frescos!

For the sides I did the same as Carol and used the harlequin stencil with the grunge paste, and then the Crowns from LPC014.

Here's another photo with a bit less glare on the main image.

I am entering this into the Paper Artsy challenge, inspired by Carol Quance's canvas.
