DT post for Craft-Room Challenge 'Home Decor'

So another 2 weeks have flown by and it is once again time for our challenge at Craft-Room Challenge.  The theme this week is 'Home Decor'  and was chosen by the fantastic Maria.  I have decided to create a wall hanging canvas for you, I hope you like it.

The paper I have used to back the canvas has been in my stash for years!  Don't know where it is from, That has been layered onto brown card.  The hessian is also from my stash as are the buttons, and cross stitch thread I have used in the four corners.

Side view of canvas hanging.

The image is a Kenny K digi called 'Bike kid' He has been coloured with pro markers and cut out  using scissors and a craft knife, then atatched using silicon glue.

The Dream big stamp (unknown creator) has been stamped ono a Marianne creatables die cut, then the whole thing has been inked with brown and green, then heat embossed with ultra thick embossing powder.

Close up of Buttons, and charm clock charm from my stash.

I will be entering this challenge into the following challenges B is for ...  Buttons, bike and boy
