I'm Sorry - Winter Canvas with Erin Quiding-Sampson

I saw this saying and thought it was really funny!! I knew I must make something using it. Sooo today's project is for those of us that are done with winter and are anxiously awaiting the arrival of spring.

To create the background, I pre-moistened a 5 by 7 canvas with a bit of water and painted acrylic paints on the diagonal.

I used Gesso on the large snowflake frame and the small sign, over that I added distress glitter and then melted UT embossing powder over top.   

I stamped the girl image on 110 lb card stock and cut her out. I used water colours and a water brush to colour her in.

Stickers were used on the same 110 lb cardstock then cut I out the words to add to the sign.

I used a small amount of distress glitter on all the small snowflakes then I melted silver embossing powder to give it that “icy look”

I layered everything onto the canvas using gel medium to adhere it.
I hope you enjoyed my canvas as much as I enjoyed making it!
Still chuckling every time I see it.
