Hey there! It’s Judy V here with you today sharing a canvas art project created for CutCardStock.

Although I don’t do projects like this very often, I do enjoy them. They can get a little messy and that’s fun every once and a while, don’t you think?

I started out with a 9 x 12 inch white canvas. The edges were painted with acrylic paint.

Next, I took a piece of patterned paper that coordinates with the purple card stocks I chose to use, cut to 9 x 12 inches and tore the edges all the way around. This piece is adhered to the canvas with decoupage medium.

To add some texture I used a “swirls” stencil and white metallic texture paste. This was applied with a palette knife.

Another layer of texture was added by taking a piece of Basis WHITE 80lb Cardstock and embossing with a brick embossing folder. I added some ink randomly and tore into strips. These were adhered.

Butterflies, flowers and leaves were die cut out of Black DCS Discount Card Stock, Hydrangea Purple Discount Card Stock, Bazzill Linen Texture LAVENDER Twilight, Pop Tone GRAPE Card Stock, Pop Tone GUM DROP GREEN Card Stock.

A little more color was added to some pieces with stamping ink. I added some spots on the black butterfly pieces with a white gel pen.

Some of the punched and die cut pieces were layered and added to the canvas.

I added glitter dots to the flower centers.

At this point I decided I thought I needed to add a little more so I die cut some more flowers and words.

I also decided to add a few more pieces of the embossed brick.

These pieces were added, along with a little bit of twine and gem flourishes, to complete my design.

I’ve enjoyed sharing this project with you and hope I’ve given you a little inspiration.

As always, we would love for you to connect with us over on the CutCardStock Facebook Page and out the Facebook Group Creating with Card Stock for more inspiration.
