This canvas was inspired by Linda's on PaperArtsy Blog last night so this morning I got out the Grunge paste and the frame stencil and covered the whole thing. I then went out for a little mooch around Crook and a lovely Brunch at Cafe J's (this bijou cafe is run by family friends and is highly recommended if you're ever in this neck of the woods).
Upon my return the stenciling was completely dry which allowed me to hit the paints. I used a combination of Guacamole, Cheesecake, Haystack, Pumpkin Soup, Limelight and Chocolate Pudding Fresco Finish paints and the went over the stenciling with Renaissance Treasure Gold. I then used Olive Archival to stamp the script background BG06.
The I stamped the medieval maid (Sheena Douglass stamp) onto water colour card and used my distress pens to colour her in. I then cut this out with an Oval die from XCut, and distressed the card so it wasn't bright white using Distress Inks. I then glued the picture into it's frame.
