More Cork and Canvas

Hello my stamping friends.

I've had so much fun playing with that cork and canvas that have been hoarded for so long!


I randomly stamped the canvas with a script stamp and die cut some cork.

Then I used my water brush to watercolor the largest and smallest heart with some 
Real Red re-inker, stacked them up, added a little bow and adhered the stack to the canvas.

A die cut cork sentiment and piece of cork for the background and I was done.

There's still time to join in at

Thank you Joanna for the excuse to use my stash of cork and canvas!

My mixed media are stamping, cork, canvas, watercolor and die cuts

and

Both challenges end on the 24th.


Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

You're inspiring me! (I found the package of cork paper after seeing your earlier work!) Love that you've colored one of these hearts...and this is just a lovely composition. I'm really liking the canvas inking too. TFS & hugs. Hope you have the same pretty warm sunshine we have today. Most welcome after yesterday's drearies.
