Claritystamp Challenge - Anything but a card!

I've never entered the Claritystamp challenge before but decided to have a go this month. Some time ago I had bought a pack of 6 small canvas boards for a different project, which so far hasn't been started! So thought I would have a go at producing a canvas for this challenge especially as I had just received my parcel containg some Clarity stencils and stamps. My first attempt was a disaster and went in the bin. My verse didn't stamp well so tried stamping on tissue and sticking it to the canvas with clear matte gesso, but the edges showed up too much and the gesso removed some of the inked background. My second attempt was much more successful!

I used distress inks for the background, mustard seed, worn lipstick, tumbled glass, denim, peeled paint and bundled sage. The bunnies were stamped in Archival Watering Can, coloured with SU smoky slate marker and thetails with a white gel pen. The verse and blackbird were stamped in Archival Black. The grasses were done with texture paste through the stencil then coloured with distress markers.
I am also going to enter this in Happy Little Stampers challenge which is sponging.
