My First Canvas, and a card

Morning everyone,hope you are all okay the weather has changed to wet and miserable still more time for crafting which is always good.
I have been,wanting to try out one of the mini canvas's so I bought some from craftyindividuals,such a wonderful,site so quick and they always send you an extra something too how cool is that.  Anyway I sat looking at it for a while wondering,if and how I could create something like a shadow,so I got my Tim stamps,and started to play.
I stamped onto the canvas first,then stamped again onto tissue,and layed on top covered with modge podge,then went over the top in traditional tan paint,then again with modge podge which in turn gave this shadow look. I then stamped again,and cut out the image and placed on top. Then added another stamp cut out and adhered to the canvas,then used some more embellishments,to the canvas.
This is what is came out like. Oh paintd the outside with pitch black acylic paint.


I have also made this card,for my cousin whos birthday it is in a couple of days its for a male but he loves flowers and his garden yet he is not the fancy type so came up with this,the stamp is from craftyindividuals
Thought I would enter this into Top tip Tuesday,.thanks Chris for telling me,hun.

This is just plain and simple,just added some crackle glaze to the message,used Tims,embossing folder,added ribbon,made the corner then ran it through my crimper,the paper at the back is from Susans crafty chaos the link is on my side bar.  Just hope he likes it. I will be posting some news which I am mega exicted about and as soon as I get the all clear I will let you all in.  Have a great day love cheryl xx

Hi Cheryl,
Both of your cards are fabulous! I love the first one, very pretty!
I did a little searching on the internet and I imagine that you can use Promarkers with an airbrush system. I found this demo here on YouTube and hopefully this will help.
hugs
Risa:)
