Trio of Canvas'

I gessoed, painted and spritzed three canvas' of various sizes in springlike colours, added multiple layers of music sheets, old text and lace.  I selected three focal images all with a nature theme to go along with the spring theme - Crafty Individuals, PaperArtsy and a freebie from an old Craft Stamper.
My smallest canvas has had the focal image stamped with dusty concord distress ink onto mountboard and here I have added some very irregular cross stitches by hand.

You may be able to see the shadow stamping I have done on the layers using a Memories shadow ink pad, very delicate but effective - well in the flesh it is lol!  

I hope you have enjoyed looking at my canvas' - I just wished that the colours had come through a little better.  The colours are very fresh and clean looking; buttercup yellow, dusty pink and a mint green.


I would like to add my trio of canvas' into the following challenges:-

Artistic Stamper - building up your layers April challenge

The Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - "Stitching"

Rainbow Lady's Challenge - "Springtime"

Cupcake Craft Challenge - "Lots of Layers"
