Here's what I've created for today:

Yes, it's another banner today! Following pretty much the same process as the one that I posted on Monday...

The pre-gessoed side of the half sheet of canvas pad was watermark inked through the Dreamweaver Spiral Dots stencil randomly over the surface before being embossed with Stampendous White Embossing Powder. This melted EP acts as a resist against the Clearsnap Mixed Media inks (Vintage, Leather, Barn Door) that were swiped over the surface. Using a palette knife, some Dreamweaver Matte Black Embossing Paste was spread over one section and set aside to dry.

Meanwhile, a strip of Mark Richard's Linen Fabric pad was frayed around the edges, and stamped with the Leather ink and the Stampendous Cling Life is Art image, along with some random distressing.

Once the paste was dry, I swiped a bit of talcum powder over the canvas as an anti-static medium for the next step. I paste-embossed the Dreamweaver Feather stencil in Copper Embossing Paste, and sprinkled liberally with Aged Black and Aged Copper Embossing Enamel. This was heated until bubbly and textured, with lots of shimmer! Now the linen strip could be adhered, along with a couple of bits of Ribbon Tape from Woodware. A wooden dowel and been prepped with black paint, and was attached by wrapping strips of the Ribbon Tape over it and attaching it to the canvas. A bit more of the Aged Black and Copper were sprinkled over the canvas, and heated from underneath for more texture.
