The canvas was first coated with gesso here. You can use a medium such as "gel medium" but gesso is what I had on hand and it works just as well. Whilst the gesso was still wet, the image was pressed into it, face down. Then the boring bit, this has to be allowed to dry naturally to avoid bubbling and cracking of the gesso. When this was dry, the paper was dampened and gently rubbed off with a finger. This leaves the image imprinted into the surface.
In this canvas I chose to decorate with embossing paste using some Andy Skinner masks I recently bought. Embossing pastes do come in a variety of colours but although I chose to use the black glossy one here, I have achieved some success by using white grunge paste mixed with different coloured acrylic paints. If a more sparkly effect were wanted, glitter could be sprinkled on before drying as well.
Drusilla, came next. She was coloured using promarkers. then fussy cut out and stuck to silver card. A ghost has to have an aura surrounding it, doesn't it?
A spellbinders die cut fence and some home made roses with little bunches of black tulle to compliment that worn by Drusilla. I added a little black feather here for fun as well.
The picture here was framed with lace and an embossed die cutThe roses, as I mentioned are home made.
