Romantic Canvas for Southern Ridge Trading Company

I have a great project for you that I made with Southern Ridge Trading Company chipboard!  I never thought I would love chipboard so much but after starting my new design team position with Karen Beaupre from Southern Ridge Trading Company, things have changed, a new addiction was born.  I love the versatility and sizes of her chipboard as well as how intricate it is. You need to just try some and you will see how awesome they fit into your work!

I made a romantic canvas with 4 pieces of Southern Ridge Trading Companies chipboard.

This is a oval canvas and part of a kit I used from Flying Unicorn Store.  One piece of chipboard is hidden under the Love Letter paper on the top right.  It is a nice shape and then I adhered the Butterfly Flourish INS 255 to the cheesecloth and shaped chipboard.   On Butterfly flourish chipboard I painted it with Gesso and then used my Copic markers to color it. A few edges I Frantaged and then added the pearls.

Below is Flourish FLO 254 and comes in a package of 3. I used Shabby Pink Frantage on it.  My flowers and papers are all part of the Flying Unicorn kit. I loved this saying! So true for me and my husband, just fits!  

Here is a bit of metal mixed into the flowers. I used Mod Podge to glue down the papers and it stiffened my tags as well and added textured.  Glossy Accents was used for glueing down the metal, chipboard and flowers, they never fall off it I use Glossy Accents which Karen also carries.

This butterfly came with the Butterfly flourish set INS 255 and I frantaged it in Aged Rose.

Here is a close up of the center of the canvas
