Flowers and butterflies canvas

Good morning my lovelies, today's project is a canvas made for our 'Anything Mixed Media/Creative Goes' challenge over at We Love to Create with Polkadoodles. We've had some really exciting changes over on the challenge blog and this is our first challenge using Polkadoodles goodies. We've got some gorgeous papers and a beautiful set of stamps for our lucky winner so do pop over and find out all the details.

I've used lots of gorgeous stamps and dies to make this canvas, along with a little stencilling, Foamiran flowers and some beautiful printables from the Belle Papillon collection. I've done a step by step tutorial over on the We Love 2 Create with Polkadoodles blog if you'd like to find out more about how I made this project.
Here a few more pics to show the detail:

This is one of my favourite techniques, I love the sparkle of microbeads

I love all these pretty stamps and dies, they've been painted with distress inks and die cut using the coordinating doublet dies

I've stamped the foliage using Potting Soil archival ink and overstamped the larger leaves with a script stamp from Belle Papillon

I've added lots of texture with raffia, angel hair and lots of die cut foliage

I'm entering this canvas in the following challenges:

Creative Knockouts: lots of layers
Inky Chicks: use your favourite colours
Frilly and Funkie: show us your stamps
Fussy and Fancy: Shabby Chic

Thanks so much for visiting today, hope to see you again soon
