Canvas



Hi Here is a canvas I made for a friends' birthday - a bit late but I think she's forgiven me. I sponged on distress inks of frayed burlap, blue china and milled lavender, then I stamped on a stemplglede grunge corner using Stazon timber brown which I also used to stamp the script from SU. Maribel is stamped on to stampbord and coloured gently with weathered wood, frayed burlap, blue china and worn lipstick with a water brush. I used EK retro punches and grunge paper for the flower which was also coloured with distress inks and sprayed with gold glimmer mist. The little swirly die cut is on the cricut home accents cartridge which I'm loving but forget to use, which is typical of me! Lastly the little embelishment was from a kit I got yonks ago from QVC! Thanks for taking the time Too visit, I do appreciate all your comments xx
