Crafty Ribbons Alkaline Trio Only Love Canvas

Hey everyone, hope you are well! I am here to share a canvas I made for a trio friend for our monthly postal swap :) I chose 'Only Love' as my inspiration and I started by creating the lyric quote and framing it with a wooden frame. I then added jute ribbon as a mat for underneath.
I used a stencil for a tree and four different colours of tim holtz distress ink then covered it in fabric mod podge. I then embossed some areas using vintage embossing powder. I used texture paste in the top corner and then stamped over it with a script stamp.

Next I added the lace from Crafty Ribbons and the 'love' wood decoration over the top. I positioned my lyric frame. Lastly I added a trio charm I made using shrink plastic and tiny butterflies I had cut from drink cans.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Mod Squad Challenge: Love

Good morning everyone, hope you are well! I am here with a mixed media canvas I created which was inspired by one of my favourite songs.
I used Texture paste, Acrylic paints, Nail caviar, Frantage encrusted jewels, Crafty Ribbons Volcan Viscose Lace in mint and a heartskull I made out of shrink plastic.

Crafty Ribbons Butterfly Scrapbook page

Hey everyone, hope you are well! I am here with a scrapbook page I have made to document some of my butterfly photography.
I used Papermania Capsule Collection papers and cardstock, kraft card, Crafty Ribbons Butterfly script ribbon, a wooden heart, embossing inks and papers.
I die cut the photo I chose and then did the same with kraft card and other patterned paper. I set the layout out with the ribbon and jute as the centre element and then drew stitches around each paper element.
I heat embossed 'love' onto the wooden heart embellishment and used it as my sentiment and then embellished with flowers.
