Butterfly canvas

This is a canvas I made as part of my successful application to be part of the Craftwork Cards Design Team.

I started by creating the grey paper frame. I used strips of paper from the Craftwork Cards Sweet Pea range. I added faux stitching around the edge. I laid this on the canvas and lightly drew around the edges. I removed the frame before stamping the grasses. The stamp set I used for this was Graceful grasses and birdcages. I added Stickles to the grass heads. All the ink pad I used are from Stampin' Up.

I attached the frame to the canvas. I stamped flowers using the Butterflies and blooms stamp set onto white card. I cut these out and added the to the frame.
Using the Butterflies and blooms stamp set again I stamped a selection of butterflies either directly onto the canvas or onto white card which I then cut out and added to the frame. I added brown Cosmic Shimmer PVA to the centres of the butterflies.

I stamped buttons using the button stamp from the Butterflies and blooms stamp set in brown ink. I added a layer of Glossy Accents. Once they were dry I cut them out and threaded linen thread through the holes. I also added a yellow Card Candi.
