Mixed Media Watercolor Glitter Canvas Little Sparkle

Hello everybody! :-)
So glad to be a guest designer at the Stamps and Stencils Challenges and to inspire you in the current challenge “Lucky Star” with a new project – Mixed Media Watercolor Glitter Canvas Little Sparkle.

I made step-by-step tutorial with instructions so you can follow the whole process how I created the canvas. The full list of supplies you can find below.

1. I started with stamping the ballerina and the ballet shoes from the Gabrielle Pollacco's Haute Couture Stamp Set, sprinkled some clear embossing powder and hot embossed with the heat tool.

2. Next, I added some color using the Lindy’s Magicals and Prima Color Bloom Mists. First I sprayed some water over the canvas, then sprinkled some pigment powders and added more water and mists. And let the colors blend.

3. Then, I stamped two kind of stars around the ballerina.

4. Next, I added more texture by applying modelling paste through a Sunburst stencil.

5. I mixed some Light Pink Art Sugar and 3D Matte Gel to cover the dress and the shoes. Then I added some glitter nail polish for more shine.

7. Then I distressed the edges and highlighted the flowers with Inka Gold. I also added some white, red and black splatters around the ballerina "masking it off" with a piece of paper.

8. Next I glued some Art Pebbles, edged them with a turquoise mist and let the color flow down. I added some highlights with a Gloss Paint Marker and the Faber-Castell Artist Pen Big Brush.
