Vintage Canvas and Tutorial

Hello Everyone,
Shilpa here and today I am back as a Guest Designer !!

I've created Canvas with Rubber Dance Retro Couple stamp.

Let's see the making process...

I've used a 8'' x 6" canvas here. First I attached torn book pages, flowers diecuts and washi tape on the surface with gel medium.
Next I applied Prima modeling paste through Tim Holtz Gothic stencil. Let it all dry completely. On that I applied thin coat of white gesso, as I wanted to see all the texture in the background.

I used lots of Distress paints to get that vintage look.

I stamped texture, text, couple image with Rubber Dance stamps and Archival inks. 

I added few more layers of tags, tickets and design canvas was ready!

Hope you liked it!

Thanks so much Bibi and Team for this opportunity!!

Thanks everyone for stopping by!

Products Used:
Rubber Dance Stamps - Retro Couple, Diamonds/ HarlequinText
Distress Paints - Antique Linen, Picket fence, Peacock feathers, pumice stone, Fryed burlap
Prima Modeling paste
Tim Holtz Gothic stencil
