Butterfly Box Canvas

This project was inspired by a few die cut butterfly's which had been treated to a trip into the good old melt pot. I LOVE my melt pot!!!!

 I began with a 5"x 5" box canvas, grunge paste was put through a mask to add texture in opposite corners and around the edges. Then painted all over with Honey Dew paint adding Zesty Zing on textured areas.


French Roast paint was then mixed with water in a mister bottle and sprayed onto the canvas over the textured zones and allowed to run.
Clear texture paste was mixed with a little Zesty Zing paint and put through another mask which when dry was glossy. Treasure gold in White Fire and Onyxite was added to highlight the texture.

A wooden frame was painted with  Chocolate Pudding paint then dipped in clear utee along with a few shop bought buds. 
Yellow colouring was added to utee and the die cut card butterfly's were dipped creating a stained glass/leaded window effect.
 Very cool.

White utee was then added to mixture to make a more solid  colour and a smaller frame was created from a mould made previously. (I made a lot of moulds for the melt pot very addictive).

Three flowers were made by spraying co-ordinating dylusions inks onto a piece of card, die cut using tattered flowers then stamped with script text. The flowers were shaped and layered onto the canvas along with a wooden ruler and lace trim. 
All the bits and pieces were stuck down with a glue gun. 
Hey Presto!
