Victorian Cats Canvas

This is my second design team entry for Try it on a Tuesday their theme for this fortnight is 'Lot of layers'.  Head over there and join in with the challenge for a chance to win a monthly prize.

I've also sent this little canvas to a mystery gift partner who I'm paired up with for Collabor-ART. But more about that with another post later this week.

You can just see my cat's tail sitting behind the painting at the edge of the table. She has to be in!


This canvas has lots of layers with a base of acrylic blue, white and teal paint. Then I added some texture from stencilled gesso (love the way the inks run over the texture). I used distress inks through a Dylusion stencil and used a text stamp here and there. I then dripped blue cosmic shimmer down the canvas (an essential bit of dippage!)


I stamped a crown stamp into heated Stampendous Frantage embossing powder and stuck down my Victorian cat image.


 I painted a tree directly onto the canvas and used liquid pearls for the cherry blossom. I added the cheeky sentiment and edged the canvas with blue and magenta paints.

This is one of my most favourite canvases, I'm so pleased my mystery gift partner likes it.

Love all the textures in your background, and the blossomy tree is delicious! Quite right, the sentiment - also beware of those whom cats don't like!
