I like to work on canvas as well as paper and this was a lot of fun to make.
I started with a plain background and then played with various masks and stencils to create interest. I hand drew the tree and painted it with different shades of brown acrylic and included a few knots and knarls for realism!!
All the stamps are by Crafty Individuals - even the bunnies which I stamped and enlarged on my printer as they started out way smaller than the blue tit! The flowers were a free stamp CI sent me with my last order so I stamped them twice each, cut them out then doubled them up for frillier blooms! The stalks are made from string which I inked with distress.
The eggs are coloured with alcohol inks and the little sign was made on my vintage typewriter, edged with Stewart Gill 'Medallion' embossing powder and attached with a little turquoise wire.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you are all having a crafty week ... x
