What a beautiful start to May we are experiencing here in Sunny South Wales! Long may it last! (I do hope I haven't put a curse on the weather now!)
You will recall I made a canvas for a very Special Friend who had a birthday in April? Well, I had another Special Friend who also had a birthday in April and whilst making the first canvas I shared with you, I made a second one for my Buddy. Only hers was a rectangle with a deep edge, and I made it toned with her bedroom colours (a little bit of sneaky texting her Hubby to make sure I had the colour scheme right was involved!).
So here it is for you to see.....
Again I used the Sheena Douglass style of painting the canvas and crackling the background.
I used the same SD Bramble stamps, Tim Holtz dies and stamp and the same swirl but I managed to get two totally different looks just by changing the format and colours.
The swirls and Believe I stamped and then embossed with gold embossing powder.
And here here you can see the edge of the canvas which I think gives a nicer finish than a narrow edge. Guess what I will be buying more of in the future!
Again I used the same waxes and some more Christmas decoration for the Ivy as well as the Spellbinders die for the flower.
Which do I prefer? I really don't know as they both look so different.
Again I used Snippets on here so I shall take it over to the Playground to see which one my Playmates like best. Don't forget, you are always welcome to enter any pieces you have made using Snippets, whatever your craft passion is! We all play nicely!
Have a great rest of the week. Yippee! Bank Holiday this Monday. Think I might just do some crafting!
