Cut It Up, I was inspired and went with it.
I started by masking off my canvas. I used gelatos coloring in every other stripe. I also used gelatos on the star portion. I then used metallic pant mixed with re-inker and painted over the stripes to give them the weathered/faded appearance. I used a baby wipe to apply different shade of blue ink to the star portion.
|I actually applied the stars before adding |
the paint to the stripes.
The running horses were cut from black vinyl in Design Space; the images were from Old West and Iron On Horse-3 in DS. The title was cut from blue vinyl and that image is from Graphically Speaking.
I finished the canvas by spraying the entire piece with Tea Stain Color Bloom Spray Mist by Prima.
