Smile Sparkle Shine~Visible Image Inspiration~Mixed Media Canvas

Every Day needs to have some sparkle and shine :)

Today I am sharing the small canvas I made for my Visible Image Inspiration day!
I hope you like it.

I am fortunate to have this fabulous stamp, "Smile Sparkle, Shine" to play with, thank you so much Helen & Mark! The stamp is a wonderful size and is so smooth, it makes stamping and embossing a dream!

My canvas is 5 inches by 7 inches, so you can see the stamp is a perfect size for it!

I think my love for modelling paste and crackle paste shines through in this piece! The base flowers are made from an ARTplorations stencil, Bloom Factory applied with DecoArt modelling paste.

I got carried away with the next layers of DecoArt acrylics and crackle and did not do step by steps, sorry :) !

The sentiment is stamped with Distress Embossing Ink and heat embossed in Recollections Copper. Love the shine it has! This embossing powder works really well with strong shapes.

I made the flowers and spritzed them with Distress Spray Stain, Antiqued Bronze. The diecuts are assorted Sizzix, Tonic Studios and Tim Holtz.

This photo shows all the DecoArt supplies used :)

Have a wonderful day! I hope you can make time this week to play and share in the Visible Image Facebook Group, love to see you there!
