For Emily


Okay, sis, here it is! Emily has been wanting something "fallish" for her front door. She has small wreath and wanted a long, skinny canvas to hang under it. This one is a deep olive green with olive and lime hand stamped detailing in the background. The lettering is in cream with copper detailing.
I added a layer of chocolate antiquing glaze. On top of that, there are iridescent copper touches to bring out the background texture and to add a little more color. I then sanded the edges to achieve a weathered look. I am really getting into this antiquing...I just with it photographed better!
