I’ve had such fun working on this mini canvas the last few days
when I had a spare minute or two..
I got these little canvasses from a pound-shop [2 in a pack with stands]
and wanted to make something to sit on the desks at work.
Working out how to cram a stamp,
sentiment and embellishments onto a 9 x 7cm workspace
was an experience to say the least..
but am pleased with the result
I started by distressing the canvas and then
tried stamping directly onto it with staz-on,
but eventho I packed the back, [the hollow bit] with some cardboard,
it still wouldn’t stamp fully…
So back to the original way of stamping on CS and coloured the gorgeous
‘Love Grows’ image by Lili of the Valley with Copics.
Cut out the image and stuck to the canvas with Rangers Glue N Seal,
a left over from the Tim Holtz class last Feb.
I then applied the same medium all over the canvas and let dry.
Stamped the sentiment the same way and added to the canvas,
when the sealant was completely dry
I misted it all with Rangers Perfect Pearls,
that is what gives that fabby golden glow.

To finish I used some sticky gems and flowers from stash.
As it happens, the current challenge over at the LOTV Challenge blog is
