Canvas for Crafty Individuals Challenge

Have made it my mission to play along with this challenge.  There is a brillant design team over at the Crafty Individuals Challenge Blog and this month they have inspired us witht the theme of "Vintage with a Heart"

My entry is a 3" x 12" canvas which I have gessoed, painted, added some Crafty Individuals summertime paper, spritzed and spritzed some more.  The final layer on the canvas was some distress ink, "peeled paint" through a Crafter's Workshop stencil.
I cut three hearts from card, painted with gold acrylic paint and overstamped with C-I stamp 237, I then edged with alcohol inks and gold cord added.
I coloured a piece of card with distress inks; peeled paint, victorian velvet and shabby shutters, which I then stamped the images and text from the C-I plate of stamps CI-277. 

The little metal charms were added - these were coloured with alcohol inks to age and to tone with the canvas.  Butterfly images from a Crafty Individuals pad were then added as a finishing touch.

I hope that the ladies over at the Crafty Individuals Blog feels this canvas fits their theme.  I am also entering this piece into the following challenges:-



Thanks for stopping by, SUZANNE ~x~
