Hello and happy Saturday! This week at 52CCT we have an embellishment challenge for you. We'd like to see you use canvas on your beautiful Christmas cards. I love the look of stamped images on canvas - it can be classy, whimsical or distressed. I purchased a package of canvas pieces but I'll be darned if I can find where I hid them from myself! That is so frustrating!! Do you ever do that? I wonder what I was thinking when I put them where ever I put them for safe keeping - lol. Fortunately a friend gave me a small piece to use so here's what I did with it...
I'm not exactly sure what style this card is. It seems that I've mixed a bunch of different styles to make a very individual card style all my own - lol. I had this great idea in mind (thus the sponging) but the stamp I wanted to use on this strip didn't go on smoothly at all. So... being very resourceful I flipped it over and started again with a more solid color image but this one didn't work too well either (the canvas is a bit rough) so I ended up coloring it in with my markers. I blobbed in the corner with the marker so then had to draw a frame around the image to cover up my error. Good gracious - I think I should have stopped while I was ahead!
I didn't have time to make another card (nor can I find my hidden canvas) - and I really wanted to support Sarah (our 52CCT August hostess), so I decided that I would just be brave and share with you. Maybe you'll see something in this that you like. I promise to make another card when I find my canvas :o).
So, I can't wait to see what you create this week using canvas! The rest of the lovely DT at 52CCT have made some beautiful creations using canvas - please go visit them and check it out! Thanks so much for stopping by to visit me today. Til next time... Hugs and happy crafting! D
