SCACD's Blank Canvas Lotus - Small from the new Eclectic Collection #2 is the perfect size to adorn many smaller projects, such as Post-It Note books which make great small gifts. So that's what I did.
I started by stamping Blank Canvas Lotus - Small onto Idea-ology Tissue paper with Jet Black Archival ink. I flipped the tissue paper and painted the reverse with watered down Primary Magenta and Primary Yellow Media Fluid Acrylic (MFA) paints (DecoArt) and set it aside to dry for a few minutes. When it was dry, Titanium White MFA paint was painted over the painted reverse of the tissue paper, then allowed to dry again.
Primary Cyan and Dioxazine Purple MFA paints (DecoArt) were stippled over a scrap of 140 lb. Mixed Media cardstock (Strathmore) and heat set. When the panel was dry, Phthalo Blue MFA mixed with Interference Blue MFA was sponged over the Fish Scales stencil (The Crafter's Workshop) and heat set.
The Blank Canvas Lotus - Small stamped tissue paper was dry enough to handle, so it was fussy-cut.
Multi-Medium (Ranger) was sponged over the stenciled painted cardstock. the fussy-cut, stamped, painted Blank Canvas Lotus - Small was placed atop the wet piece, then a few more layers of Multi-Medium was sponged over both.
When the panel was dry, Interference Green MFA paint was sponged over the dragonfly on the Flying Gardens stencil (The Crafter's Workshop) three times. A scrap of green textured metallic cardstock was die-cut with the Missy Micro font die (Die-Versions) and adhered to the panel.
Black cardstock was cut to 3.25" x 6 7/8" then scored 3.25" from both ends. The edges of the stamped piece were sponged with Jet Black StazOn ink, then adhered to the black cardstock. Wonder Tape (Ranger) was used to adhere the Post-It pad to the inside.
