Where's my Sticky Back Canvas?

I knew that I had some somewhere, but it has taken an awful lot of rummaging around to find it. At last I get to use it.
Tag number 7 looks truely amazing on Tims blog, mine not quite so much!!
To start I didn't have an embossing folder that looked like wood, so used one that was actually grass and a bird (cunningly concealed behind my poinsettia).


No spray on colours for my canvas, so I just swiped it with Distress Ink, and found some red and green glimmer mists that took a bit of unclogging but eventually managed to spray my canvas with these. My poinsettia is a bit fragile as I don't have a hot glue thing, so with a lot of glossy accents and much pressing it finally held together.

I now off to have a look at the fab tags over at Artyjens
