Vintage Canvas

Hello everybody, hope you're having a relaxing Sunday, Tamara here with today's inspiration and I've had another go at a canvas this one is 10"x 8".  I have painted the canvas with Eco Green Friendly acrylics in Ocean I used a doily die which I sealed with Mod Podge. Then came the fun part of painting over with distress crackle to create that wonderful crackled finish..  
The flowers have been dipped into melted beeswax, it gave my papers that wonderful dark brown. 
I painted the tiny flowers in copper but forgot to add the tiny pearls to the centre and only realised after I had photographed it.. 
The stamped images I added glass fronts to using glossy accents. 

The chipboard squares I've used treasure gold over using the brush bath to create a liquid instead of a wax,  I then stamped an image with staz on then over the top I used a creative expression wax - pearl moon. 

Here's a picture of a close up of the crackle and the frantage embossing powder. Why not join us over on Cheery Lynn Challenge Blog for our weekly challenges.  A new challenge starts tomorrow (Monday)
for a chance to win a $20 coupon to spend in the Cheery Lynn Store.
