My first canvas

I've taken the plunge once again. This is my very first canvas for a very special friend's birthday coming up this weekend. She is an absolute shopaholic so I thought instead of using my many flower stamps, I would dig out my 'style' stamps of shoes and handbags. I am pleased with the result. I have used the colours of her house - chocolate brown and teal blue - so that it won't be hard to decide where she puts it. (Presuming she likes it that much, of course!!!) I used brown staz-on, sea breeze versamagic, aqua shade petal point inks and walnut stain distress ink. I UTEEd the stampbords after inking and stamping and set them on the canvas with silicone adhesive. I embellished the canvas with adhesive pearl cabouchons from where you will find every colour under the sun!!! I hope my friend likes it and I thank you for looking and welcome any comments. Denize

Denize, I loved it - thank you so much. What a great birthday present. It will be hung in the lounge for all to see. However, I do object to being labelled a shopaholic. My trips to Bluewater are down to single figures per week now!!
