Hello folks, hoping that you all had a lovely weekend with some sunshine as we did - it really was sunny Sussex for once!
The only slight down point was that I had to take advantage of the weather to get my washing out of the way after months of having to stick it in the dryer.
Today we have a new challenge for you over at Make My Monday and the theme this week is Anything But A Card so there are loads of things you could create - just take a look at the Design Team line up for some inspiration.
I decided to finish off a box canvas which I started a few weeks back but couldn't finish at the time as I couldn't make anything work. I hope you like the finally finished version and here it is.
I painted the canvas with aqua acrylic paint and then used a Prima stencil with red and gold paints to add a pattern round the outside. I then swiped gold paint around the edges.
I stamped the bird (Paper Artsy Hot Pick HP1005) with Black Soot Distress ink and embossed with clear powder and cut him out.
I added him to the canvas with a variety of paper flowers with pearls added to the centres. I then stamped the flourish from the set with Fired Brick Distress ink, stamping several times without re-inking and stamped the text on with Memories black ink. I trimmed this to a panel and added it to the canvas to finish off.
Have a great day.
Hugs, Fliss xx
