Tutorial – Heart canvas

Hi everyone, today I’m sharing my first make with the latest release of Bubbly Funk stencils- and unusually for me it’s a canvas rather than a card.

I began by using stencil #10 Hearts and using matte texture paste through it to create some texture. I then painted over this with white acrylic paint.

Next I dabbed some Distress Oxide pads (Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean and Broken China) directly to the canvas, added some water and smooshed it with my fingers. I then blended more of each colour on top. Next I smudged Picked Raspberry Oxide onto my glass mat then applied this to my canvas with a wet brush.

Once I was happy with my background, I added the heart using stencil #11 Key to my Heart and Picked Raspberry Distress Ink. I chose this rather than Oxide to acieve a more washed out look. I added the word Love using Black Soot Distress Ink before flicking over some white paint.

The stencils I used for this project are available here https://www.bubblyfunk.co.uk/bubbly-funk-c-822.html?osCsid=d585d22a40c1e101d11db48f7f54da2e
