My first canvas

This is my latest project, an altered stretched canvas. It is approx 8" x 8" in size and I used distress inks and gold glimmer mist to colour the background/canvas. I then cut up some mountboard into 1 1/2" squares and coloured some of them using distress inks and then I stamped various Crafty Individual stamps onto them. I triple embossed these to give them a nice glossy finish.

Some of the other squares, I covered using Crafty Individuals paper and stamped butterlies onto thick vellum and cut them out and attached them using silicone so they are 3d. The middle piece of mountboard with the saying on is approx. 3" square and again I used distress inks to colour it and I used one of my favourite Tim Holtz stamps. Again I then triple embossed this to give it a nice glossy finish. Unfortunately the glimmer mist on the background and the glossy squares don't really show up in the photo.
