Bird canvas

This is actually a creation that I made a couple of months a go during the “Ranger Days” @ Art Journey in the Netherlands, but I haven’t shared it with you yet.

All die cuts were dabbed with paint dabbers. The cage was overpainted with transparent crackle paint.

Unfortunately, I was suffering a severe fit of migraine during Tanya Watts’ canvas workshop, so I couldn’t focus 100 % and the background of my canvas has not quite turned out how I’d hoped for, but it sure was nice to explore this medium which was totally new to me.  (Obviously my fits of migraine are nothing compared to the illness Tanya ‘s currently trying to overcome, for I just read on her blog that she’s undergoing chemo … I wish her a lot of courage and hope for a quick recovery!)

As this canvas obviously is not a card, I’d like to enter it to the Stampinsanity challenge “Anything but a card“. Moreover, as it features a bird, it perfectly fits the brand new Creavil challenge “birds“.  And last but by no means least, I’d like to enter this project to the “Drunken Stamper” challenge, for they’d like to see die cuts this week.

    The colors and images and shapes are superb!
