Something Summery

This week's Stamp Something challenge is 'Summer Somethings'... and the Penny black challenge is 'no cards'.... so I decided to use the canvas that came with my fab hobbycraft mini easel..
I've used:
  • 5x7 canvas
  • Orange, yellow and lime inks, making the background using the kitchen towel technique found here
  • Swirl corner stamp
  • PB 'Embrace' image stamped onto the canvas
  • Marvys and water
  • Watercolour paints
  • Variety of prima flowers
  • Tiny pearl beads as flower centres
