Lots to Do challenge!

This weeks theme over at Lots to Do is canvas!! This was a small box canvas that I used a mask of a bird of paradise and sprayed glilmmer mist over. I inked the blanked canvas with a brown distress ink first to give it a sorta grungy look. I then embossed gold powder round the edges. What you cant see is taht around the sides of the canvas i stamped some floral images.

The flowers are velum and the ivy I've had for ages! I brought a 2 metre length of it about 4 years ago withthe idea of putting it in my kitchen - till I realised it would just end up a dust collector LOL

Have a fab Saturday!

:o)
