Simon us your Handmade Background

This week's Simon says Stamp and Show Challenge Blog says "Show us your Handmade Backgrounds!"
I've been working on an altered Canvas and created my background with Distress Inks, Sculpting Paste, a Chicken Wire stencil and White Acrylic Paint.  I loved doing this but I need to invest in some White Gesso since I plan to do many more of these!

Products I used:
8x10 Stretched Canvas
Ranger Distress Inks ( Iced Spruce and Seedless Preserves)
Tim Holtz Crowded Attic Paper Stash
Tim Holtz Pinecone Die
Tim Holtz Butterfly Die
Ranger's Glossy Accents
Ranger's Stickles in Lavender and Waterfall
Want2Scrap Rhinestone Flourish
Want2Scrap White half Pearl
White Acrylic Paint
Aleene's Sculpting Paste
Chicken Wire stencil from my painting stash
Feathers from one of my Ducks :-)

Thank you for looking!
