Stamping With The Dragon "One for Dad Challenge

Hi Everyone welcome once again to my little bit of blogland! I hope that you are all well and happy and enjoying the long awaited glorious summer weather we are having!
Its challenge time over at Stamping With The Dragon with the theme "One for Dad". We had some fab images and papers to work with designed by the lovely Janette Padley owner/designer of  Stamping With The Dragon. So without further ado I have to share with you today a canvas board I have altered for the challenge and I hope you like it!
My Altered canvas wall hanging.



Goodies Used:
 
Base: 5x7 canvas board
Image: Tractor in yard paper from the Stamping With The Dragon shop. I printed off 2
 5x7 papers cut around the tractor image of one and covered it in glossy accents and left to dry, then dipped the edges of the other one in water and when they were wet I gently pulled bits of the edge all the way around to give a distressed look. When id attached it to the board I applied guilding wax by Creative expressions in pearl moon to the edges ( difficult to see in the pic) and added the glossy tractor as a topper. 
Embellishments: For the straw I used raffia from my stash. For the hanger I cut 2 inch wide cream jute into 3 strips, plaited it and added two clear beige buttons to the ends.

Fab project. Just the sort of image my Dad would like as he use to have a similar old tractor. I like the use of raffia as straw.
