Grunge lace canvas

I decided to colour mine in pink, green and yellow.  I then glued it onto a canvas base and cut it to size.  on top of this I've added some gauze.

To the left side I've added a couple of die cuts from Little Darlings and Tom Holtz.  Once this was done and dried I've added flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, The Ribbon Girl and Live & Love Crafts.

This one a close up of the bottom section

And this one a close up of the top section

From this picture you can see I've added a couple of sentiments from Scrapienic.  I had a bit a nightmare with these.  Originally I had them coloured black and they disappeared into the background.  Then I tried a few other colours but nothing looked right.  In the end I've added them in their natural colour and just added some DecoArt glitter over the top to add some sparkle.

Here you can see I've taken a photo from the side so you can see the 3d effect of the flowers.

My final picture is a full view facing.  Let me know what you would have thought might have worked with the sentiments.  I'll be interested in what you think too :D

Wow. This looks amazing. Difficult to see the sentiments at first glance but not sure with such detailed background it would be easy.
