Textured Canvas

I was inspired to create this canvas by Clare Lloyd who is guest designer this week on the Paperartsy blog. I base painted the canvas, added a different paint mixed with grunge paste to the top and bottom, I used too many different paints to list them all to achieve the wall, sky etc

 I then stamped several of JOFY 's flower stamps, painted and cut out and attached to the background.   Added a band of ribbon again stamped to give a bit of interest, and finished off with a few words and of course some treasure gold to highlight.
