Canvas boards

Just thought I would post a couple of canvas boards made back in February. I was lucky enough the be able to attend a techniques workshop at The Stamp Man and had a really lovely day with Jill Tuck trying out loads of techniques and getting messy. The first one here is the one we made in class, it's amazing how everyone's turned out totally different from the same materials. We attached sticky back canvas to mount board and got painty with ranger dabbers on the background and a torn piece of corrugated board. We used a variety of stampboard pieces, Tim Holtz stamps, Tim sizzix dies, UTEE and stamps, Moonglow mica powders, in fact there are not many things we didn't throw at it!
I made another later, in some of my fav colours purple and greens. The corrugated card came under a Morrison's pizza! The lovely black spray details are a great product called webber from Krylon. I made the flowers using Stamp Man starburst stains on plain printer paper, scrunched it up, dried it with the heat gun and then used Tim's tattered flowers dies. I have used Stamp Man aspects of designs stamps on this one which I bought ages ago at Harrogate.

Hope you like them, I have really enjoyed getting messy, I dont do it very often!
