Anything but......

A card.......!!!

For this Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge, I went green!!

I pulled out a used Canvas Corp canvas. I painted on some Black Gesso. Spritzed the edges with Aged Mahogany Distress Reinker Mixture. Using Multi Medium I adhered down a piece of Tissue Wrap.

From a piece cardboard, I cut a Mini Birdcage, torn off a layer and brushed on some Tarnished Brass Crackle Paint.

I used some of my left over "water" creations, embossed with Swiss Dots and die cut the heart. The heart was then spritzed with an Aged Mahogany Distress Reinker and Forever Red Perfect Pearls Mist.

The finishing details were the LOVE Adage Ticket, Ruler Ribbon and Fired Brick Distress Stickles

So........whatcha gonna create??

Don't forget to link your creation to the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge Blog.

Lynne, your canvas piece is really neat. I love the black gesso background with the tissue wrap on top. That Aged Mahogany is perfect on this piece...much better than a bright red would have looked. You did a fantastic job! <3 Candy

Where is the 'love' button? This is so GORGEOUS. And to think, it's repurposed? Wowza, Lynne. Love the ruler tape wrapping around and how you've done the sentiment.

Fabulous, Lynne! I'm in such a Valentine art mood and your project really hits the mark with me. Love that wonderful canvas and the tissue paper background. And it's so cool the way you tied in the measuring tape with the sentiment.

Have a great week.

Hugs,
Linda

Great colours and layers on your canvas Lynne - fab tones - works so well - scarlet would have frightened me away! ...Love the tissue wrap too.

Love the grungy feel to your canvas Lynne, the black gesso adds a completely different look.
