Embossed Painting on Canvas

Hi All,

I took some time off from card making and tried out a new technique of Embossing on Canvas board.This technique was demonstrated on a TV show.I have used a readymade 8 X 10 Canvas board from Fine Art.I traced out the floral design on the board.To create the embossed effect, I have used Non stitch fabric glue from HobbyIdeas.After it dries well, we could start painting with Acrylic colours.I have added outlining and highlighted a few details with Black acrylic paint just to raise the effect of embossing.

This could be framed well and mounted on wall to make a Decorative Wall Hanging. For the moment, I am yet to give this for framing, so, I have just added a small tag on the back side and mounted on a wall.
Here is the image of the painting hung on a wall.
A close up of the painting, not sure if the camera is able to pick up the embossed effect very closely.

Linking this to "HANGING OUT" challenge on crafter friend Kavitha's blog.

Hope you like this painting!
