The Canvas Club

The Canvas Club was started by me so i could feed my new addiction, Basically i have set up a thing with my Angels to do 1- 2- 1 canvas swap's as i feel i shall be making many of these little works of art, and this is the perfect solution as not only am i getting to create and getting all inky but i also recieve a fab canvas in return to decorate the walls of my craft room.

Hers is my first offering...



I used a selection of my new Basic Grey & Fancy Pants stamps.
I used distress inks in worn lipstick & broken china for the background and vintage photo & shabby shutters combined for the branchs, the same colours were used for the owl and birds. I used a black archival ink for the lines and distressing edging, and wrote the verse with a deep pink and then black sharpie marker. Finished with a few drops of glossy accents on the birds, and some felt mini shapes with gems for a bit of added bling, and a flower to finish, just because i like to have some touchy feeliee detail......
Now i wonder who the reciepant will be?
