I Think You are the Best Canvas for Creative Expressions


I did this canvas using lots of Creative Expressions products. I started by misting the background with Cosmic Shimmer Antique Rose Vintage Mister  and Cosmic Shimmer Winter Garden Misting Ink in Soft Moss. I used the gorgeous Henna Floral Corner and Floral Border stamps to make a distressed mixed media background with Jet Black Archival Ink.

To make my featured bag stamp I embossed the Bijou Bag stamp using Perfect Medium and Cosmic Shimmer Black Fine Detail Embossing Powder. The paper comes from the Tim Holtz Retro Grunge Paper Stash, just a lovely shade of green. The sentiment is also embossed and comes from the Rose Blossom Purse stamp set. I used the gorgeous shimmery Cosmic Shimmer Copper Kettle Texture Paste in the center of my canvas and around the edges. I placed the fussy cut Bijou Bag stamp in the center of the canvas accenting it with some 5mm Black Pearls.

I cut several Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms flowers in the two larger sizes, highlighting them with gorgeous Golden Lilac Gilding Wax. The butterfly is a die cut from the Spellbinders Fanciful Flight die set. As a final touch I added the Creative Expressions Key Charms to the canvas.

I hope you like it and thank you so much for visiting!!
