2 stamps 2 ways .....

Hello again. Today I have a canvas for you. I can safely post it now as the recipient has had it.

I started with a 6x6 canvas and used the last Claritystamp NDC stencil to make background. I used several distress inks from the blue and green families and also mustard seed from yellows. I kept shifting stencil and adding the inks. I then had to extend the pattern as stencil wasn't big enough for canvas.

I stamped flourish and cage on tissue paper in black archival and clear embossed it. i then mod-podged it to canvas. The sentiment got the same treatment. Stamps are all by Tim Holtz.
I finished it off by adding some highlights with a white pen.

The card was created by simply stamping images in versamark on coated card stock. I then brayered over with butterscoth and sailboat blue adirondak inks and this makes image pop through.
I turned it into an Easter card and embossed sentiment in white. I went round it with a black sherpie pen framing image and creating a faux mat.

I hope you like my 'arty' attempt, Theresa xx

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:
