So much much fun!

Soooo many photos!

I have been wanting to make something for this months challenge over at 
Cards are acceptable, but the DT always make such glorious altered pieces.
So here is my effort :D
I started with an old canvas that already had loads of texture...
 and covered it with layers of paint/alcohol inks...

 and gesso through stencils.
 When dry i used matt medium to apply floral tissue paper.
(actually it is a torn up serviette)
 Next step was to select papers to tear and ink(distress)
before layering again with medium.
 The flowers were disappearing so I cut some with my 
Tattered Lace dies...
 coloured with markers and embossing powders.
 I don't use the powders very often as they make me cough
so I stamped and embossed direct to the canvas too.

 When embossed the roses lost all their detail, so I over-stamped
with permanent ink... 
 before using silicone glue(which also makes me cough) to attach to canvas.
 I added gold embossing powder to frame the canvas...
 Loving all this yummy texture :D

Enjoy :D XXX
