Tuesday To-Do

Here are the instructions to make this canvas which I posted a couple weeks ago


Canvas or canvas board

Two colours of Ranger Perfect Pearls (I used Sparkle Yellow and Rust)

Ranger Embossing ink

Ranger clear embossing powder

Image stamp - I used clear acrylic stamps by Alpha Stamps

Rub-ons: 7 Gypsies

Sticker: Daisy D’s

Trim: Prima

Fabric butterfly: from Alpha Stamps fabric collage sheet

Two spray bottles

Paper towels

Stickers and embellishments


1. Ink your stamp with embossing ink and randomly stamp image across the canvas.

I did my stamping in a trail across the canvas because of the follow your bliss theme I was going for.

2. Cover with embossing powder and tap off the excess. Because the canvas is textured make sure to really tap it against your table so that it adheres only to the stamped image.

3. Use heat gun to melt embossing powder

4. Mix lighter colour of Perfect Pearls with a little water in a spray bottle

And spray over entire canvas.

Don’t worry about any drips or drabbles, that will only add to the effect J

Let dry entirely. If you’re impatient (like me!) you might want to use your heat gun to speed this process up a bit.

5. Once dry mix second colour of Perfect Pearls and spray over canvas, making sure to concentrate on the areas of the canvas that are still white.

6. At this point you can use a crumpled up piece of paper towel to dab into the wet “ink”. This gives a nice texture to the pattern

7. You can choose to either stop at this point or add another layer of colour.

Once the canvas is dry use a clean paper towel or soft cloth to wipe colour off the embossed image

Now you can decorate the canvas to suit your theme!
