Textures On Canvas by Alison Hall

Hello Stampers!

This week I have an 8" square canvas to share with you.


The Artistic Stamper Website has a fantastic selection of background stamps, and for this canvas I just used 5 of these, plus a few other supplies.


Distress stains are brilliant for colouring large areas, and I used broken china & a little vintage photo to colour my canvas. I also spritzed it with heirloom gold perfect pearls mist.

I cut nine 2" square pieces of board. To colour them, I schmooshed broken china, dusty concord & faded jeans distress inks on my craft sheet. I spritzed this with heirloom gold perfect pearls mist, then lay my little tiles in the sparkly ink, drying them with my heat gun, then adding more ink until I had a nice effect on each of them.

On four of the tiles, I stamped four different backgrounds, using broken china distress ink.

I triple embossed the remaining 5 tiles with clear ultra thick embossing enamel, stamping into the last layer with different background stamps, including one script stamp.



I rubbed gold Viva Inka Gold into the embossed texture, then rubbed most of it off, leaving gold accents in the dips of the embossing. Then, I edged each of the nine tiles with gold paint dabber, before gluing them to the canvas with Studio Matte Medium.

Finally, I used my finger to rub some Inka Gold around the edges of my canvas, then added some gold crown charms to four of the tiles.

I hope this has inspired you, & thanks for looking!
