The theme for the canvas was nature and I had to go with flowers as I love using them in a rather grungy way. I included die cut flowers, a flourish (cut up a little) and some texture paste through a stencil. See if you like what I made:

|The smaller flowers were all constructed using the method outlined above although not all were stamped. I like the way the texture paste adds detail and dimension to the background.
Hope you like this little piece - I do seem to be using these colours a lot lately but I love them!! I'll have to put them to the back of the drawer and make myself use something else! Thanks for visiting and a big hello to my new followers: I will visit you to say hello, just give me a little time to get there!
A Little Extra Post
Can I also share some images of a gorgeous little envelope that dropped on my mat a few weeks ago? My beloved moggy Frankie was diagnosed as having some kind of bone marrow problem and it would seem that he wouldn't last out the week - I'm pleased to say he's still with us and amazingly seems a bit better! My blog friend Alie from Holland knew of this so sent me a little something to cheer me up - people are so kind and even though I've only been blogging since January 2012 I feel that I have made some really lovely friends. Alie is incredibly talented and creative and if you don't know her work yet I would suggest you pop over to her blog and have a look. Here's the card and tag she sent me - even the envelope was decorated:
The gorgeous tag!!
