This month I created a 9x12 mixed media canvas featuring some unique flowers.  Can you tell which PWP stamp I used on my flowers?!  Well if you guessed the butterfly stamp, then you are correct!  I've had this idea for awhile but just never got around to trying it until now.  I simply stamped the set of wings then cut them in half.

Here's a closer look at them.

I embossed and inked all of the edges of my petals then curled and glued them on.

This bird chippie if from the Blue Fern Royal Bird Frame.  All I did was cut the piece I wanted to use, gesso'd, sprayed with Dylusions inks and stamped with the PWP Flourish stamps.

My background is vintage sheet music, paint, some Build A Shine and Flourish stamps.

I really like the fun bright colors of this canvas.  It feels happy to me.  What do you think?!  Well I hope you enjoyed the hop, I know my DT sisters worked hard on their projects and we all appreciate you hopping with us!  Please stop by the Paper Wings Productions Blog next and let us know what you thought of the hop.
