The smallest things canvas.

I have a wee canvas for the Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Craft group challenge over on Facebook. In honour of St Patricks day this month, the challenge is to create a project with green in it.


I started with a canvas that i didn’t particularly like and took the Swirled hearts texture sheet from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts which I scraped some texture paste through. I then used different colours of Colourarte silks to get the green colours of the bacground. I printed the quote onto a piece of green paper and then cut it into seperate words before I stuck it onto the canvas. The heart is from the Waterworks shape set and it was painted with Vintage mint silk acrylic glaze from colourarte. I used a stabilo all surface pencil to outline the words and make them stand out against the background. I finished the whole thing off with some prima flowers.

Creative Expressions DT call

Shapes Card with texture

Whilst trawling the net for different things this morning I came across this call by Creative Expressions, I would dearly love to be part of their team as the stamps are such good quality and so varied. The DT entry calls for a challenge card to be made which includes texture and a stamp.

My card, as you can imagine at such short notice, is a little basic but the stamp is a Personal Impressions greeting stamp embossed with gold embossing powder. The girl is made from basic shapes cut with spellbinders circles and ovals, embossed with embossing folders (swiss dots and Boofle) and edged with Vintage Photo Distress ink. For extra texture I added the bakers twine and the lucky coin(Papermania)
