Pam Bray Designs: A Girl With Flair

Sharing creative ideas through mixed media, stamps, embossing powder, charms, chipboard, stencils and designer collections

Have you had fun this week seeing all the inspiring pieces from Nathalie Kalbach latest stamps from Stampendous!!!

I have created an “On a Safari” Canvas using Nathalie Kalbach Elephant 3 in 1 Stamp Set. 
It includes a  cling and foam stamp along with a stencil in each of the 3 in 1 stamp sets.
Begin your canvas by paint it with gesso, allow to dry completely. 
Spray mister on prepared canvas, mist with water to allow the mister to travel across the canvas. 
(Do each mister separately, allowing each to dry between sprays.)
Dry completely.
Stamp cling elephant from set with black paint. Dry.
Do a wash of Teal and White over entire canvas. Dry
Do a wash of Brown Umber over bottom of canvas. Dry. 
Stamp tracks background to top of canvas with Titanium White Paint. Dry.
Stamp tracks with Brown Umber paint. Dry.
Lay stencil that comes with the Elephant 3 in 1 Stamp Set on to prepared canvas.
Apply embossing paste to top with palette knife. 
Dry completely.
Repeat as above using Black Embossing Paste. 
Dry completely.
Shade and highlight elephant and sand on canvas. 
Add dots with stylus and paint. 
Dry completely.
Add chipboard and sentiment from pattern paper to top of prepare canvas.
Die cut pattern paper using Poinsettia  Die. 
Form flower, ink edges, adhere to canvas.
Another look at my “On a Safari” Canvas.
