Dream Today - An Altered Canvas Board

Hi Peeps,

I just cannot get enough of those Studio 490 stamps by Wendy Vecchi LOL :O)) **and it just so happens that I may just have aquired another couple of sets LOL**

Here is a little Hanging Art piece I made using a 5" x 7" canvas oil board. I used Juniper and Purple Twilight Adirondack pigment inks again...yes, I sooo love those colours together....and I used Grungepaper to make the embellishments. I coloured the Grungepaper with the Juniper ink using Cut n Dry foam to blend, then stamped with Purple Twilight and cut out the pieces. Once they were assembled, I placed them onto the oil board, which I had coloured and stamped with a the gingham background and a variety of leafy stamps.

The beads in the centre of the flowers and butterfly were yet another birthday pressie and I looooove these beads, they are so chunky and the colours are a perfect match!

The chain is from the Tim Holtz Idea-ology range, as is the key that I attached to it. I added a little bit of beady fringing to the bottom of the board just to finish it off prettily.

I have titled this piece Dream Today ... which I think is just about the best thing we can all do!

Thanks for looking
