I picked up a mini canvas on sale a few weeks ago and decided I wanted to play with it. I coloured it with alcohol inks and then stamped a motorcycle stamp all over it. I then used embossing powder (WOW Embossing powder – blueberry) to distress up the edges. I then painted a small slip of wood and embossed the edges of that also (WOW Embossing powder – pepper). I stamped and embossed the sentiment (WOW Embossing powder – black). I stamped another message on the bottom right corner too. To add a bit more impact to the sentiment I die cut two cogs and embossed a flourish pattern on them (WOW Embossing powder – paprika).
In my head I pictured this working out totally differently, but that’s art for you isn’t it! I wanted it to be a mini inspirational canvas for a guy I know who loves motorbikes. I am not sure I really like how it has worked out but I will live with it for a while and see. I can always paint over it!

I am entering this into the WOW Embossing Powder challenge which is for masculine projects. I also used lots of their earth tone embossing powders on my project.
Thanks for stopping by!
