This evening I'd like to share what i've been working on over the past few evenings. It's a canvas piece inspired by a recent post on the fabulous Hels Sheridan's blog.
|A close up of the roses and that fabTim Holtz Word Band|
I've used a mask and distress inks to colour the canvas background and added small patches of acrylic paint with a piece of bubble wrap to give a hint of texture. I was trying to keep the background very pale and pretty so that the birdcage would really stand out. The birdcage is covered with Stampendous Shabby White embossing enamel to give it a vintagey look. The roses, leaves and bird are cut from grungepaper and coloured with distress inks.
I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
Love to Create - Things with wings

Colour Throwdown - # 210
Crafts and Me - Roses
