Canvas and a Giveaway!

I just wanted to share a double canvas I recently made using some of the new Bo Bunny Blossoms.  I had a quote I found on Pinterest that I wanted to use which I thought would be perfect to have up on the wall as a reminder for me to take to heart especially with how my life very often is!

I had lots of fun with these two canvases, I painted them, used mists, masks and distress inks.  I also used tissue paper and Gesso to create texture, torn book pages and some texture paste through a brick mask.
 I used some of the Bo Bunny Welcome Home papers to cut out those beautiful swirls.

The beautiful butterflies were done with the Bo Bunny Ambrosia stamp set, definitely one of my most favourite Bo Bunny stamp sets!
This leaf punch is one of my new favourite tools and it is an Xcut leaf Embossing Punch, just love it!

 I just adore all the new blossoms and I think the ones with the big jewelled ball from the Zinnia packs are my favourites followed very closely by the Pansy's (the two toned yellow one with the matt ball in the photo below and the two toned purple one)

As the festive season is drawing nearer I have put together a little Christmas kit to giveaway using the beautiful vintage style Bo Bunny Rejoice!  It includes one each of all twelve patterned papers, the stamp set, some Petals, a few Noteworthy, Trinkets, brads and then a couple of other bits and bobs.  Sorry for the not very brilliant picture and some of the colours are a bit wrong but that is due to the wonderful weather we have had over the last few days!  Winter has definitely come early in the UK ;)

If you would like to win the kit just add your name to the link below and I will draw a winner in two weeks time.  There is no need to post the giveaway on your blogs or anywhere else but If you would like to that would be much appreciated :)

(I know the link is showing up as having to add a URL but I unchecked it on the Inlinkz setup so you shouldn't have to add one )

Carin, this canvas is so beautiful and I can see why you picked the quote out. Love the background texture and all the elements you used - stunning. I haven't come across Bo Bunny blooms at all, they look fantastic! Must resource for some. :-)
