ALTERED ECLECTICS - bloom, grow canvas

Hello all, another challenge over at Altered Eclectics and this month I have decided to share with you a canvas I created. 

I used lots of lovely IndigoBlu stamps on this project to create a stamped layered background. 

I inked the canvas with different coloured inks and sprayed then stamped randomly over the top with IndigoBlu Itsy Bitsy Backgrounds and the IndigoBlu Ledger stamp. 
I then stamped the Umbellate stamp over the top. 

I then added swipes of FlitterGlu with my finger in random placed and added some gilding flakes. 

To finish, I added areas of melted wax to create texture around the edges of the canvas and coated the printed sentiment with UTEE. 


IndigoBlu Stamps: 
A5 Itsy Bitsy Backgrounds
A6 Ledger Background
A6 Umbellate

Other bits and pieces:
gilding fakes
printed words

I hope you pop over to the Altered Eclectics challenge blog and see what the other team members have been up to to inspire you this month.
