Yes, it's another Canvas

I doooo like  6x6 box canvas's.
I have found a supplier who for a reasonable price and I mean reasonable, provides the above good quality canvas and the back is all neat and tidy, not thousands of staples around the back edge to keep it in place.
A while back I went canvas crazy and prepared a few, (may have mentioned this previously).
Anyhow, I chose one and  here it is grunge paste, paint and treasure gold applied and waiting for a topping a bit like a cake.

I cut up a piece of mount board to make a title, painted it with a brayer inked the edges and stamped on top.
Die cut flowers, (my fave) were dipped in paint/water solution that was sprayed on a non stick craft mat and left to dry, then text was stamped on top.
The edges were distressed with Rusty Hinge distress ink using my new round applicator thingy.
Leaves were die cut and coloured with Leaf Green Archival and Shabby Shutters distress ink, the flowers were shaped with a ball tool and all the bits and bobs were dunked in the melt pot. This did make the lovely rusty colour a lot darker, but a still like it.
The centres of the flowers were hot glue gun covered in glitter and allowed to cool, everything was then attached to the canvas with the glue gun.
And then I made a couple of cards!!!!
