Tulip: Perfect Love

More time!
This piece is on a 4" X 5" stretched canvas. A piece of torn cardstock pressed using the dot CB folder was layered onto the canvas. The piece was painted with ivory acrylic paint and allowed to dry. A laser-printed tulip was added after the dots in that area were pressed down a bit. Layers of acrylic paint in ivory, greens and reds were blended into the canvas with a slight sanding throughout the process. The words Tulip and perfect love were computer-generated and added. Watered-down acrylics were used to blend the words into the piece. Distress inks were used to emphasize the dot pattern. The canvas was completed with a layer of Mod Podge.
