Canvas and Trees

Morning and September already(my birth month)and I am back with my 5th of 5 DT posts today-we have a new ATG challenge at Love to Scrap and we are sponsored by Sparkle N Sprinkle and Dr Digis.I used a canvas sheet which I lightly covered with Aztec silver paint which looks grey?/stamped round the edges with a craft freebie stamp and added two strips of dry wall mesh.
I stamped the tree images from Crafty Individuals onto card which I had dabbed with distress inks on a wet wipe used to clean stamps-and although it is mainly green I thought it made a pretty cool background for the trees.
