Canvas Colours

Just recently I have found a new (to me) challenge blog, Alter It Monthly, which currently has the theme of canvas for this month, and I almost forgot to take part!!!     But I have just finished photographing my mini canvas (I'm running out of display space in my home!)   It is roughly 6"x4", and I've used an ATC sized Stampbord piece as well as some new stamps.       The canvas was cut to size, and given a watercolour (Twinks H2Os) and salt background, I then added some Pixie dust to any white areas which were showing.
While this was drying I covered the Stampbord piece with StaZon inks (I've used Teal Blue and Iris) and when dry, I stamped my chosen images (words are from THIS Darkroom Door set, butterflies are from THIS set) and I used my brad new set of Pink Paislee stamps around the edges of the Stampbord.
I also added some butterflies punched out of some painted canvas, some of THIS ribbon, and a little glitter here and there.    The Stampbord piece has a coat of DM to give it a nice glossy finish.

  If you get a chance, there's still a couple of days left to join in with this great challenge, and there's always next month, right?       Thank you for visiting me, now go, CREATE something : )

thank you so much for joining us on alter it monthly. your canvas is beautiful . wonderful colours and textures and having a central lifted panel really brings out the focal point.

I wonder if I might as you to use our link tool to enter this as I fear it may get missed when our sponsor looks through them and its worth being seen.
