Love canvas

This is my project for the The Artistic Stamper April Blog challenge. The theme of the challenge is Texture. So I have used stamps and masks to create a textured look on the canvas and leaves. I have added lace and a bottle top for additional textures.
To start I decorate the canvas. I used Bundled Sage Distress Paints to colour the canvas.
 I used a Crafters Workshop Microbial 6 x 6 mask and Forest Moss Distress ink pad to add the spotty pattern to the canvas. Lastly I stamped the C75 Lace stamp by The Artistic Stamper around the edges with a Walnut Stain Distress ink pad.

To make the flowers and leaves I used The Artistic Stamper's Flower Power stamp set. I stamped the outlines onto patterned paper and dark green card.  I used my Meltpot to cover the items in melted UTEE. I also used the UTEE to fill the bottle tops.

A close-up of the flowers. I also added Creative Expressions Gilding Wax to the edges of the flowers. 

I used The Artistic Stamper Mini Polka Dot Background stamp to impress a dotty texture into the leaves. I again added Gilding Wax.  

A attached a strip of pretty lace across the canvas. I used the love stamp from the Journaling Words #1 stamp set. To finish I added pearls to the centre of the small flowers and in the corners.
