Canvas Corp Brands & Dare 2B Artzy Blog Hop

Thank God it's Friday, so why not end  your week with a blog hop!
Welcome crafty peeps I am so excited to be hopping along with Dare 2B Artzy Canvas Corp Brands! It was fun to dive into box of goodies (that was picked for me) and be free to create whatever I wanted! Totally a challenge and fun one to boot! So let's get CREATIVE...

Blog Hop Details
Today we are sharing projects from the CCB Crew Members: Erin Reed, Martha Lucia Gomez Hernandez, Me and Nadine Carlier on the CCB blog.  You will find all the details to win a great prize of stamps and inks from Dare 2B Artzy and a $25 gift card to the Canvas Corp Brands Shop over on the Canvas Corp Brands Blog.

I created an Altered Shadow Box called "Perspective" 
cause an art piece will bring different perspectives
 forever changing from eye to eye. 
Just like butterflies and flowers change so does our perspective.

Altered Shadow Box

I was so excited to work with the stamps, dies, papers and color mediums with this project.
That when I saw this amazing TA Mixed Media Origins paper with the butterflies on it. I knew I wanted to create a shadow box with butterflies, flowers images. I first stamped, colored and cut out all the images and then the embellishing began (my favorite part)! 
I love all the details in my little shadow box, hope you enjoy it as much as I do...

I was thrilled to see that the Dare 2B Artzy Clear Stamps had 
matching dies to go with their amazing stamps.
 I first started with stamping and coloring the images with
 (I used the back of Canvas Corp's thick pattern card stock)
which stamps and takes inks/water colors amazing!
Step 1. Stamp images with archival black ink.

Step 2. Let the fun begin....color your stamp images
(blot ink pads on a craft mat, add water
 to your paint brush pick up ink and color images).

Step 3. With your paint brush dip in the Tattered Angels Shimmer Water Colors
It's a great way to color stamp images with
 different mediums great mixing for shadowing.
Back Drop
In my box I also received the new TA Mixed Media Origins papers..."wings"!
I knew right away I wanted to water color it and
 use it as the back drop in the shadow well as fussy cut out 
the images to give a 3D look! Love this paper!

Altered Shadow Box: Canvas Corp Brands

While all the stamp images dried from the coloring...
I started on the 7Gypsies Shadow Box,
 I took vaseline and wiped it here and there over the shadow box 
and pop out frame.
Then covered it in Gesso white paint when paint was dried
 I wiped off the vaseline
it creates a distress look...FABULOUS!

In my goodies box I got the tiny canvas's 2x2 stretched natural canvas's
 I painted with them the vaseline and Gesso
technique also...adhered to the shadow box pop in frame.
Even adhering one tiny canvas's backwards with
 distressing the fibers of the canvas and
 tucking in a TA Shimmer water color flower. LOVE!
