Clematis Flourish

Good Evening Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Well what a fabulous day I have had!  Kath (Mucky Paws) and I have made 2 canvas' and had lots of fun even getting mucky paws!

Our first canvas we made for our Mad Crafters Giggle Facebook group!  The theme was Tic, Tac Toe and to pick 3 of the following, Chain, Beads, Distressed, Embossing, Keys, Stamp, Flowers, Wings and Wood.

I chose Flowers, Embossing, Stamp and Wings, the bird on the Clematis Flourish which is an Indigo Blu Stamp I have decoupaged!


Clematis Flourish has been stamped onto text paper with distress ink and embossed with distress ink embossing powder.
The canvas has been painted with metallic gold acrylic paint.  I have used Fran-Tage Taupe across the centre.
The letters are from my Martha Stewart Alphabet Mould.
Distressed around the edges with Adirondak Expresso.

Thank you for stopping by Tonight

  1. Wow Linda what a stunning project. Wonderful detail.

  2. A lovely canvas Linda, the Clematis stamp and bird look wonderful and I love the texture of the background x

  3. Ooo I love that clematis... Great canvas. Px

  4. Your projects are gorgeous!
    Fun to see you have used decoupage on your canvas, I used it as well (though mostly because of bad planning - it's kind of hard to stamp onto paper when you've allready dry-embossed it :P)
    The Fathers day card looks great, I might copy it one day! I loooove the backgrounds on the owl, and Beautiful Birds and Petal Flourish. The rest of the cards as well, but the backgrounds are so subtle and dreamlike! I'm following via RSS feed now!
