Mini Vintage Style Canvas

I've made this canvas in mind of our current challenge on the SheepSki Designs Challenge blog where the theme is FLOWER POWER!

The image has been coloured with Copics then fussy cut to add to the canvas, which took AGES!
The canvas measures 18 x 13cm just to give you an indication of size.

I've used a stencil from Tim Holtz and some modelling paste to create the background.  Once the background was dry I painted it with white gesso and acrylics.

Again I waited for this to dry, then highlighted the stencil with Metallic Gilding Polish in Pearl Lustre to add some shine.

At the lefthand side I've added a strip of white lace.  I then added the fussy cut rose image.  At this point I used a DecoArt Shimmer Mister to add the shimmering spots you can see across the canvas.

On top of this at the left some Dusty Attic honeycomb chipboard.  Next I added on the resin butterflies and finally the sentiment created with Idea-Ology Big Chat stickers.

I loved creating this I just wish I had much more me time to be able to do things like this for gifts!

Thanks for popping by for a look today

This is a beautiful canvas. There is so much detail on it and the texture is fab, as is the lovely, muted colour. The butterflies and words finish it off perfectly. Gorgeous.
So glad you joined us at Try it on Tuesday.
