Acrylic Resist Canvas

I decided to experiment a bit more with the technique and used it on a canvas board which I find a lot easier to use if you want to stamp on it. As the canvas board is sturdy, you don't get the dippy bit in the middle that is hard to stamp on.
I painted the canvas with 2 coats of white gesso first and then with a coat of cream acrylic paint. I stamped a rose design from a Paper Inspirations clear set all over in the Ranger embossing ink and then added a little pink and then gold embossing powder in places before coating the piece with the Satin Pearl powder. This gave the roses a slightly different look. I then painted baby blue acrylic paint over the top and when dry, removed the paint as before with baby wipes.
I mounted a photo of my mother on gold card which was first embossed with a border design on one side, using my Cuttlebug. I cut a piece of fabric larger than the mounted photo and stamped the roses all round the edges in dusky pink ink. When it was dry, I stitched beads in the centre of some of the roses.
I finished my canvas off with braids and fabric roses. I added a gold heart to the photo which was embossed and stamped into. This is because my lovely Mum did have a heart of gold as she always put others before herself and would do anything to help anyone.
