Stampendous Santa Canvas & Blog Candy....

Hi everyone! Welcome back to another Stampendous Saturday. First thing, lets get to last weeks winner! I had my son random.zak pick a number. Lucky #7...Kathy Martin!!!  I'll be in touch to get your address so I can get these stamps off to you!

I love this weeks project that I'm sharing. It is a project that I created for Stampendous for CHA/catalog using one of the new Stampendous cling stamps Believe Santa and a Canvas Corp burlap canvas. 


I stamped the images on Kraft colored tissue paper in Archival Ink. Next I carefully colored the images in with Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils. Next I covered the image with GlazeOn by Tsukineko. This would prevent the watercolors from bleeding out in the final step. Although the Intense watercolors are permanent after they've dried, the red tends to bleed a bit. I didn't want to take any chances. The final step was to adhere the tissue paper to the canvas with Matte Mod Podge

I borrowed this photo off the Stampendous site because you can really see the see-thru effect of the tissue paper in this photo. When you adhere the tissue paper to the burlap with Mod Podge the burlap peeks through the tissue paper. Fun effect! 





Now onto this weeks Blog Candy! Enter a comment below in this post telling me what your favorite NEW Stampendous product is! Lots of fun new stuff.. stamps, Mica Powders, Crushed Glass Glitter.  I'll pick a lucky person to win the Santa set used in this project. Here's what you're playing for... Believe Santa.

Beautiful canvas. What a great idea.

My favorite new stampendous product would probably be the stamps. There are several sets I would love to have like the Paris/travel set, the snowman set, and several vintage Christmas sets.

This is an amazing project Wendy and I appreciate you revealing how you achieved such a great look. When I first saw this project I couldn't believe that you actually stamped on the canvas. Now I know your secret. Beautiful work.

Miria said...

Wow, your creation is stunning! It's so difficult to choose one among New Stampendous that I have two: Magical Snowman and Two little angels, thank you for the chance, hugs, Miria

I've stamped tissue & applied to canvas but never burlap...once again 'Eric' you rock! It's a perfect technique for this vintage-like image. It's fabulous Wendy!
