I made this canvas yesterday at our "Tartan Stampers" team training.
It is a small 20cm x 20cm canvas from Dunelm Mill.  I stamped the background "roughly" with the Stampin Up French Script background stamp.
The buttons are all made from real red and old olive card.  They are made by glying multiple layers of punched circles together and I then covered them in embossing powder.  I finished them off by punching 2 holes using my cropodile.
The gold button at the top was covered in heat and stick powder, melted and then covered in SU fine gold glitter.  The trunk was made in hte same way using chocolate chip card.  i embellished a few burrons by threading through some of the fine SU elastic cord.  I attached the buttons to the canvas using crystal effects glue.
Dawn showed us Jenni Pauli's fantastic tree that she demoes at last years Convention.  We then adapted this idea and made our own versions.
