Mixed Media Canvas with layering dies (Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Buttercup Layering Die Set Release Blog Hop + Giveaway )

When I saw the new Altenew Craft-a-flower: Buttercup layering die, I was instantly inspired to create a mixed media canvas. I knew it would create a beautifully bright piece and what’s more, I loved it so much, I wanted to translate it into a card as well. So today’s post features something for everyone whether you’re a cardmaker or a mixed media artist.  If you’ve never tried mixed media canvas, I hope you enjoy the video and see how easy the process is – I’m still a beginner but I love it!

You should have arrived here from the fantastic Amanda Baldwin. You can always start at the beginning of the hop over at the Altenew Card Blog here.

Altenew C-A-F Buttercup is available to buy from Friday, May 7th, 2021 at 9:00 am EDT

Mixed media canvas with layering dies: easy background with acrylic paints

For the canvas, I blended blue acrylic paints from a third of the canvas up towards the top with the darker blue at the top. This canvas measures 5″x7″. Next, I used green paint at the bottom, first colouring all in one colour. Then with a smaller round brush I added layers of different greens in a flicking motion upwards. 

The paint colours used were:

  • Light Blue Permanent
  • Cerulean Blue Hue
  • Brilliant Yellow Green
  • Light Green Permanent
  • Green Deep Permenent

To create the florals, die-cut the Altenew Craft-a-flower: Buttercup layering die out of white cardstock and smoosh various ink colours down to colour the die-cuts. I used the following colours:

The layering die cuts were adhered together with glue and then added to the canvas with varying different levels of dimension for added interest. The canvas was then embellished with a few Moonstone drops. 

Mixed media canvas with layering dies: use it for inspiration to create a card!

This card was inspired by the mixed media canvas. To create the background ink blend Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Blueprint distress oxides onto a white card panel. For the green patch, ink blend Shabby Shutters and Mowed Lawn

The die-cuts were coloured in the same was previously with the mixed media canvas and again added to the card panel with varying depths of dimension for interest. 

A sentiment was heat embossed from the Paint-A-Flower: Chamomile stamp set and fussy cut out before it as foam mounted onto the front of the card.
