Rose For My Rose

Morning everyone! Something a liitle different from me here this time as I decided to do a small canvas. I bought a few canvas boards a little while ago as they're much easier to stamp on than conventional canvasses so I decided to do something with a small one to get me going.
I've made this one for this weeks challenge at the Play Date Cafe with a colour theme of black, white, silver and gold.

As it also fits in with the Sophisticat theme of Fancy Borders, I'm entering it in that one too. It also fits in with the theme of Precious Metals at Paperplay Challenges as it has gold embossing, a gold German scrap border and gold and silver card.

To make this, I painted the canvas with white acrylic paint and stamped on various background images with black ink. I then dry brushed antique gold plus more white over the top to soften the effect. I rubbed embossing ink in places and embossed with tarnished gold powder. I stamped over the top with white, then black acrylic paint and a flourish image.
The digital image is from Dezinaworld, the mono collage sheet and I matted this on black, gold, silver and more black card. I stamped a small flourish image on white card to make a border and glued this on with checked ribbon at the top and a German gold scrap border at the bottom.
I added a stamped butterfly with a black jewelled body and a punched flower with a black jewel centre to finish.


  1. Great work Fliss, love how you did the background. Gorgeous butterfly stamp too.
