Below you will see my project! I will also be showing you step by step how it was created! The is my second ever canvas tile project! I think it turned out really good; what do you think?
I started out with this white 5 X 7 Canvas Tile.
I added two layers of Black Acrylic Paint and let it dry.
Then I used the Smeared Ink Rubber Set ~ Inky Dreams and stamped some of the awesome splotches all over the canvas with Red Acrylic Paint. Let it dry.
Now came the fun part... I added one layer of Modge Podge Gloss Finish and laid down my colored digi image by Smeared Ink ~ Hanging Heart while it was still wet. (I colored it with Prismacolor Colored Pencil Numbers... 997, 1085, 932, 1008, 935, 949, 923, 924, & 925. Then I added some Inspirations Paint in Fairy Dust and Coal to the finger nails, blood drips, and the string. After that dried I added Aleene's Paper Glaze to it. Once it was completely dry I fussy cut it out with my exacto knife.) Once I had it all laid down flat, I quickly added another thick layer of Modge Podge Gloss Finish to it. I let that dry over night. Then I added some Creative Memories Letter Stickers to spell out "I Give You My Heart On A String". Now I added the final layer of Modge Podge Gloss Finish. After it dried for two days, it felt a bit tacky yet. So I sprayed it with Krylon UV-Resistant Clear Acrylic Coating to completely seal it... no more tackiness!
Now came getting the hanger on it. I used Jewelry Wire, Split Rings, & Wire Crimps out of my stash. I put the wire all together and added it to the back of my canvas tile using Glossy Accents to hold it in place. Then I added the card stock back with Red Wonder Tape to be sure that everything was put together well. It is still hanging and looking great for 2 weeks now!

And one more look at it from an angle.
I am very happy with how this turned out! It was a long process; but I will be making more of these in the future!
