I started with a box canvas Ive had for about 3 years lol! I built up some colour with distress inks in broken china and wild honey which make a lovely green when mixed and dried with a heatgun between coats. I've added streaks of acrylic daubers again drying then used the flourish die cut as a stencil and applied gold painty swirls. The corners are distress crackle paint and I've literally thrown some white pearl paint on and heated till it bubbled (I was outside in the sunshine with my heatgun btw!) Added some black dots with sequin waste.
The embellishments are quite personal. The key is from one of my MANY house moves when I just want to stay put. The mini domino is from my huge collection of various shapes and sizes, I'm always looking in charity shops for old ones :D The flowers I pressed myself, they're proper naff but I love them coz they're so naff. The buttons were white and I altered them with distress ink and I had to add the shrink plastic at the bottom to give Janey and Jill a laugh. I'm RUBBISH at shrink plastic and these were an attempt (or 3) of shrinking one of tim's flourishes. I thought I'd include them as well why not, I'm rubbish at it and this canvas is quite personal. I dont have a lot of altered nick nacks and this is my first go so be gentle lol!
Tim Holtz/Sizzix flourish die (Used as stencil and rubbish shrink plastic)
So come on girls and guys, drag that Tim stuff out and show The Stampman what you're made of!
