Vintage Images Cogs Canvas for Crafty Individuals
I wanted to make something that used most of the new stamps Crafty Individuals recently brought out so I decided to make a chunky canvas. I painted it with Fresco paints in Green Olives, Butternut, Yellow Submarine, and Tango, and used the new script stamp CI 406 . I then cut some canvas board pieces to fit the other stamps, the vintage car, the steam train, the 'phone, and Wishes, and painted the pieces with Inky Pool, Sky, and Beach Hut. I highlighted some areas with white pen. I then rusted some die cut cogs, and also some of the metal corners you can now buy from Crafty Individuals under their Must Haves section.

A great way to highlight all the new stamps together. Love the contrasting colours and the rusty cogs are a great addition.ReplyDelete

Love this - showcases the new stamps beautifully and I like the blues with the rusty cogs.ReplyDelete
Oh wow wow wow absolutely gorgeous stunning canvas. I really love the way you have done the background, the colours are fantastic. I have almost finished my butternut fresco paint, I was upst that they got rid of it. The new stamps are amazing and I love how you have added the white pen, it looks like you have done it on stampboard. Hugs Kezzy :-) xxxxxReplyDelete

Gorgeous Steampunk canvas Lucy! xxReplyDelete
Oh, wow, Lucy - I love this! How cool the images look in turquoise with that fab white doodling, and they pop brilliantly against the beautifully rusty vintage background. Fantastic choice of the cogs to steampunkify it!ReplyDelete
And thanks so much for the heads-up at Snazzys... am struggling with getting round to do more than visit those who visit me - and even that's usually a late return visit at the moment, as you'll know!!
Wonderful canvas, Lucy! You know I love grungy and steampunk and what a great combination this is! Fabulous all the way! Hugs!ReplyDelete
That is such a great way of putting those new stamps on show Lucy. Love the contrast of colours and the sprinkle of cogs and gears. Jenny xReplyDelete
