Fleur-de-lis Canvas

When I first visited a friend's new house, I found that her young daughter and I shared a fettish for France's fleur-de-lis.  We also love the color combo of pink/black/white with just a touch of gold when appropriate.  ")  So I set out to paint a canvas for her birthday.  Well, I have missed the mark by a month but am finally finished with the canvas.  I painted an 8"X10" canvas with Studio's "painterly pink", dry-brushing most of the color onto the canvas.  I then used Studio's "charcoal black" paint on my fleur-de-lis stamp.  I stamped this image 4X, once half off the canvas.   Finally I used Apple Barrel's acrylic white paint on my small fleur-de-lis stamp and stamped several X randomly on the canvas.  As an afterthought, I used a small brush pen to draw two black fleur-de-lis on the canvas.

I wrote on the canvas with the small brush pen and as I was about to upload it to my blog, I noticed that I had misspelled "fleur".   I had spelled it "fluer".  I could not believe I had even wrapped it and was ready to take it to Abby.  So I had to unwrap the gift and have a "do-over".  ")
