Canvas and Cork for CAS Mix Up

Hi.  It's time for a new challenge at
CAS Mix Up

Using stamping, canvas, cork, corrugated cardboard, Inca Gold, wire and micro-beads

This month Joanna (Jo-Jo's Spot) is our hostess.

I had some canvas that I'd been hoarding for ?*#!* years!

It has a backing on it so it can go through the printer.

I didn't trust my printer (the one I had then and the couple I've had since).

Hence the hoarding.

Thanks Joanna for the excuse to use this stash!

I stamped a sentiment on the canvas using an Archival ink.
I used my MISTI but it stamped well the first time.

I cut a piece of thin cork that had been given to me as a mat.

The heart was in my Valentine UFO box.

It was cut from corrugated cardboard.  Then I used my finger to smoosh
some Inca Gold all over it.

In honor of Joanna, I even pulled out some wire and beads.

I love how she decorates her card with bits of wire and beads!

Check out what the Design Team has done.
Our fabulous Guest Designer his month by Marianne (Marianne's cards 'n stuff).

Hope to see you at CAS Mix Up!

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Love the script stamped on the canvas, Bonnie. Great with the cork mat. But that heart .. it steals the show. So beautiful with the bright satiny red and the texture from the corrugated card. Love your "jewelry" adornments. xx

You know, I've just gotten into the habit of taking a breath when I come here, cause I already know I'm gonna see something just fabulous. And I did! This beautiful card has so many extra special details, it's just so amazing. Love the wonderful blaze of the corrugated red heart, never worked with either the wire or canvas OR cork (got some cork though!) You've really scored with this gorgeous Valentine!
