Outlawz Monday Greetings Challenge- Anything Goes

Hello, Crafty Peeps!

I have been playing with my inks again and for this project I decided to use my Earth Safe Finishes Paints in combination wtih one of the new Rainger Distress Inks.  

Originally, this canvas was supposed to be called "Behind The Trellis" but I did not like the outcome when I tried using the trellis die cut over the entire canvas.  I will try it again, but with different elements!  I absolutely love the ESF paints.  These are "green" products.
The Base Color of the Canvas is Rangers's Abandoned Coral.  
The Stencil is TCW's Mini Window Screens
My Fabric items are:  Small Silk Flowers and Large Cotton Flower
Each side of the canvas different.  On this side I used Paint and Drywall Tape
 This side is a combination of stenciled texture paste, drywall tape, paint and Viva Gold wax rub.
The top and bottom sides also have unique designs using stencils, texture paste, and paints.
I wish I had a close up of the flower.  It is very pretty IRL!
 Petaloo Darjeeling  "Frosted Roses."  
These flowers are made of recycled cotton and take paint very well.  
I used the four Earth Safe Finishes paints from the Canvas Palette. 
 Trimmed it with Viva Ink Old Gold, and  covered the entire flower in a thick coat of Ranger Crackle Accents.  The result is an iridescent, glittery flower.  

I am pleased with the outcome of this Canvas.  I am still new at this, so I am always thrilled when I feel comfortable posing one of the projects.   Hope you like it, too!
