Time for challenge

Hello there,  I'm doing a challenge for
First I got canvas so I thought it has got nice texture on it so let ink all over without gesso on  using dusty concord and ice spruce and mowed lawn then it need to shine so I use acrylic white pearl paint all over that way you can see the colours.
Now I found cheap beads from tesco of assorted letter beads and I happen to have an idea is to use texture paste on the bead and then distress ink called iced spruce and I use black pen to colour the letter to stand out now they do look like my wonderful stone pebbles.
I made the flower out of spellbinder called medallion four which I cut out three of them and distress ink on it and snip between the petals then bent the petals to stand out  now I got something missing in the middle of flower so I think hard and I come up with making a roses. Ok use ice spruce ink it on to a card and then draw right size of circle and then cut spiral, when you done that I use quilting tool to roll the spiral and take it off there you have roses now stick in the middle of roses to keep in place and stick in the big flower. I got another die cut called leaf 2 from crafter's  companion and ink it then stick on near the flower. Finally I punch two flowers and embossed it then put purple gems in rhe middle flowers and I have found purple string to hang up ready for my new home perfect.
Wow I had fun and first time did this picture. Hope you like it
