Canvas



 Hi everyone, hope you're enjoying the weekend. I'm just scraping in on some challenges with this canvas which is for Linda's Compendium of Curiosities challenge where this week the challenge is distressed collage fragments. I haven't managed to enter for the last few weeks and wanted to this time as it's coming to the end of the book! At Gingersnap Creations there's a colour challenge of jewel colours plus gold and at Simon Says Stamp and show the theme is to show your ephemera which I've already entered this week but hoping I'm allowed more than one :D!

To get the vivid jewel colours I used Brusho powder paint and I've used stamps from the gorgeous Katzelkraft set Oiseau Musique to make the collage as per Tim Holtz's Compendium book. For  the gold elements I used a krylon gold leafing pen and some gold sequin waste. Vintage paper, punched and stamped butterflies say ephemera to me so hopefully that's OK for Simon Says Stamp and Show.

Katzelkraft stamps are available in France at Katzelkraft Stamps and in the UK here at the Craft Barn.

Enjoy your Sunday!
