Not been in the craftroom much these days as no motivation to get on with anything substantial apart from making flowers etc. So this project gave me a swift kick up the backside. It is my stepmoms 80th birthday and thought this would serve as a card and pressie.
I stamped on some calico using a script stamp and stuck it to both canvases. I then run ink around the edges.
First the 5x7 - I covered the back using lace and painted over it.I used wooden embellishments, cage and birds and left them natural. The little glass vials I filled with pearls/beads and a couple of flowers. The front of the canvas I used a picture from the net and cannot remember where from lol. I used trimming round the edge. The flower I made from muslin and I crocheted the corner. I used a little ink over the top to give it all a vintage look.
The 8x8 canvas - I made another flower ad place it in the centre and gave it a frame of lace. The front I just laid more lace down, added another of my flowers a crochet one this time, a stickpin I made and used a wooden postcard for my birthday message. Thats it really - voila! I do hope you like it - actually to the point that she does lol.
Hugz and love
