I decided to play around with all the different background stamps and wanted to build up layers and textures just by using a selection of stamps, a bit of fabric and a blank canvas.
Here is what I came up with....
I stamped the Visible Image 'brick wall' stamp on the edges of the canvas in blue ink then added some different fabrics to create texture.
I then used the Visible Image 'ripped fishnet' stamp around the edges and heat embossed it using silver powder. Which came up great! Sometimes when using embossing powder on canvas it alters the detail because of the texture of the canvas, but the detail of this stamp is amazing.
In the bottom left corner I used the 'live your dreams' stamp and then used my Dymo embossing machine to spell the words and add them over the top.
To finish, I added some flowers and buttons around the frame.
I really enjoyed doing this project as I got to use a number of my favourite stamps and build up layers and texture.
