Everything stops for tea (or chocolate)

For some time I have wanted to use this old spoon in a project so when I received the Paris plate from The Stampsmith, at last I was able to use the spoon.

The mini canvas was painted and then the same stamp repeatedly stamped onto tissue paper. Then the spoon and crochet added.  I purchased some circular crochet mats from Poundland – by cutting the cotton centre away, the crochet remained which I cut into half and layered the two pieces at the top of the mini canvas.

    This is wonderful! How did you apply the tissue paper? I have several mini canvases going and stamping on them is ridiculous and this is soooo gorgeous!

      Hi Debby.After stamping onto tissue paper sponge some Johnsons Klear Floor Polish onto the canvas. Gently lay the tissue paper on top and pat down with a foam brush. Now sponge more Klear onto the top of the tissue. If a distressed appearance is required, at this stage tear some little holes. Now leave to dry. Easy as that! Lynne x
