Inidgoblu purple canvas

Phew, this has taken quite some time to finish, but now I have I'm really pleased with it. The stamps were free with a crafting magazine and as soon as I saw them I just knew I needed to get my Melt Pot out the box and use it for the first time. I used beeswax to seal everything on the canvas and although I'm sure I'll get better with practise, I was surprised how difficult the beeswax was to work with. But I did and here it is.

I was also quite surprised to find just how hard it is to get a good stamped image on stretched canvas!
