Friends Forever - Mixed Media Canvas - Funky Flair Challenge

Hello Everyone

I  can't believe it's almost a week since I last posted!! Yikes!
The family has been sick with flu and for the last 3 days I have been rather under the weather too, so unfortunately I did not create much and I did not post anything either.

I have been busy with a canvas for a few days now, which just seemed to take forever, but it's now finally finished! ;-)

I had been over to Lizzy Hill's blog and had been inspired to play along with the

Here is the gorgeous mood board.

...and here is my take.

I used BoBunny Crackle paste to create the background, along with some Distress paints and sprays.

I used some Creative Embelishments Chipboard, along with some gorgeous, new leaf dies that I received from Sizzix and some Little Birdie blooms.

I used an older 7 Gypsies stamp for the title of this canvas.  It will be a gift for a friend of mine! ;-)

I am in love with the new leaf dies that I received from Sizzix -

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you have a super Sunday!
