Fun with Canvas at Frilly and Funkie!

"Get Crafty With Canvas" is the current challenge at Frilly and Funkie!  Last week the Frilly team certainly did some gorgeous crafty goodness with canvas and now with the Funkie team, you just have the best of both worlds!  Come on and pull out some canvas and play along!  Linda offers a $25 gift certificate to The Funkie Junkie Boutique, and what a lovely store it is!  There is also a project competition vote and the winner will have a lovely badge to display!  Can't wait to see what you do with the "Get Crafty With Canvas" challenge. 
For my DT project, I used a 5" X 7" canvas board, did some spraying with Dylusions and Color Wash and a bit of masking!  The leaf border was stenciled with clear emboss ink.  I find I am enjoying these sprays more and more!  I added gold embossing powder along the canvas edges and a few splatterings on the canvas.  The bird cage and butterflies were cut with sticky back canvas and then inked with Distress inks and of course shaded!  Added some gold pearls to the butterflies and the stamped sentiment is from Tim's Shabby French set.  Made up a little sentiment with Chit Chat.  I wanted this to be a hanging canvas to give to my G-Daughter, who has her very first apartment! 

Now in the store there are new products and new releases!  Metallic Distress Stains, Stamps,Yeah!  Linda still has the entire set of Dylusions sprays on sale and some new stencils with great prices, so stop by and have a look! 

Thank you for stopping by and hope you will come join us for some crafty fun!

Love your colours and the way you have used the canvas for the birdcage and butterflies is fabulous my friend.
Las Vegas was so hot, grand canyon and Williams much cooler and now pirates cove on the Colorado river is hot, hot, hot too, but great AC.
