Another Altered Canvas

I've been having another play today. I've a new dishwasher and tumble dryer being delivered this afternoon so cant use the kitchen sink and opted for my craftroom instead. I managed to find where I bought my previous canvases and ordered a few diffent sizes. This is about 3 x 3.  The image is from Magic Moonlight and have edged with my Gold Dabber. For the background I have used Distress Inks and Glimmer Mists. Flowers from Wild Orchid,Charm, Ticket and Hat Pin from Crafty Emmas Store and other bits from stash. Stamped Corners are the new Additions from LOTV being released 19th April.
This was me just playing around but I always enjoy altering canvases.
I have decided to try selling some of my cards/craft on ebay. So many are giving this a go and my work just sits in a box unless if for something specific so will be trying to get more on ebay over the next week or so including my canvases. Its a shame to stick these in a  draw and we could all do with a few extra pennies. But thats my fault for always buying new stash LOL.

Here are a few challenges my canvas fits into;
Anything Goes - Pearls
Spoonful of Sugar - Tons of Texture
I Did It Creations - Anything Goes
Catch the Bug - Anything Goes
Dream Valley - Things with Wings
Flutterby Wednesday - Open Challenge
Secret Crafter - Butterflies
Simon Says Stamp & Show - Anything but a Card
Allsorts - Bloomin Blossoms

Sorry I've not been in blogland much this week, but hope to catch up with some of you over the next day or so.
Let me know what you think and I'll be back tomorrow with my card for a new LOTV Challenge.

Take Care

I think this is absolutely beautiful! You're quite right to sell you creations on ebay - your work is lovely and so many people want work that is one of a kind. Have you seen how much has been bid for one of Bev R's cards (the hAnglar Easter bunny)? Just think how much more stash you'll be able to buy! Hugs, Tracey xx
