CCT Butterfly Kisses

We have a fab theme at CCT this week and its Butterfly Kisses. I have been having a bit of a change from card making and decided to decorate a canvas. I have painted the back with gesso and then made a stencil using a Tim Holtz movers and shapers die. I applied modelling paste through the stencil and then painted the canvas with acrylic paints. I added a little gold paint from a Tim Holtz paint dabber over the swirls and some flowers cut with an EK Success punch. I distressed the flowers and added a pearl to the centers. The background text was stamped on to tissue and applied with Mod Podge and the butterflies are cut with an X Cut punch and embossed with Fran-tage Shabby White embossing powder. I got the quote from the internet. I really enjoyed making this canvas and have a few more waiting to be decorated.

I hope you will be able to join in this weeks challenge as we have a fab prize from Whiff of Joy.
