Hummingbird Canvas

I've been wanting to create another project with these beautiful stamps by Ryn for quite some time, she has started a customer creation section on her blog you can find it here

I started with a 8''x8'' Clarity Stamps Canvas and applied large brush strokes of a variety of the following beautiful rich colours DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics
Prussian Blue
Dioxadine Purple
Cobalt teal
Quinacridone violet

 Whist wet applied large brush strokes of titanium white

I applied the Prussian Blue and Carbon Black acrylic paint to a mat and lightly pressed the Ryns patio stone stamp into it then applied to the canvas, or apply the paint directly to the stamps lightly with a brush not too much or it will blob
And did the same with the leaves and Kelp with metallic gold, gradually building up layers of texture

Stamped the hummingbirds onto card, coloured with Spectrum Noir Pencils and cut out and edged with Black Soot Distress Ink

  4. This is so beautiful that it truly takes my breath away! You are so very marketable, Jools! You need to do something about this!

  5. Hi Jools lovely to see you yesterday in Wantage even if you weren't on the class. Not sure when I will get to meet up with the people I have met there again, it is very sad but I wish Wendy and Colin all the best.
