At the end of this post you'll see why I'm smiling!
Just a quick reminder that there's still time to join in at
Where Joanna is our hostess this month.
I've chosen to use canvas for this card and my other choices of mixed media are
Stamping, Watercolor and Die Cuts
I stamped using Archival ink on a NBUS stamp that I found on a clearance shelf.
I stamped the circles that were in the set to fill in the flowers
but thought they weren't bright enough.
Some Real Red re-inker in my palette and a water brush took care of that.
The canvas took the watercolor beautifully.
This canvas was meant to use with an inkjet printer and has
a light backing on it. That may help to control the watercolor.
The domed die worked well for cutting the image.
Since the piece was shorter than the die, I cut the top than
lined up the bottom of the die with the bottom of the canvas and cut again.
I die cut the sentiment 3 times and stacked them for dimension
and added some tiny gems and a linen thread bow.
There are lots of videos for using canvas, cork and felt at
the CAS Mix Up Challenge site. And the Design Team, as well as
our fabulous Guest Designer, Marianne (Marianne's Cards 'n Stuff),
have done some wonderful inspiration pieces over there!
I hope you'll join us with your fantastic creations.
