Using the resist technique I stamped the main image onto sticky back canvass coloured with distress inks then buffed up the embossing. Fraying the edges of the canvas took for ever! :)
The canvas was originally intended for my piece for the CH exhibition but wasn't big enough.... had to do it all again!!
The background for the canvass is stamped with the same flowers in perfect medium , there's a tiny little bee in there too, then coloured with DI around the edges.
The bee was stamped directly onto the card then stamped again onto card and the body part coloured, cut out and adhered to the card.
Stamps: Hero Arts: flowers
Cart-Us : main bee
Crafty Individuals: tiny bee... in one of their freebie packs :)
Sentiment: Artistic Stamper
DI's Wild Honey, Dried Marigold, Scattered Straw and Frayed Burlap
Bits and pieces from stash.
The challenge over at LIM is to use the colours of your flag.
I chose to use the colours of St. George.
I used the same theme as MMM but this time chose birds.
Stamps: Stampendous; bird nest
Elusive Images (now Chocolate Baroque); swirly bird and sentiment
Ink: DI: Aged Mahogany.
Go and take a look at both challenges and see the wonderful inspiration pieces and join in the fun!
Enjoy your day
