My Partner in Crafting Crime-Photo inspiration

Good evening everyone, sorry I am late posting this! Its new challenge time at My Partner in Crafting Crime and our theme this week is 'Photo inspiration' from the following photo from the design seeds website:
I started by watercolouring my image with Aquamarkers-I really dont use these much and I was very pleased with the results I got-sometimes it is good to challenge yourself!
I then picked out the remaining colours from the photo inspiration in my design papers-I used Papermania Rose Garden, Henbury Lane and a green and browns garden themed pack the name of which escapes me!
I used Rose Garden greeting 'Happiness' and punched a butterfly out of the Henbury Lane papers. Lastly I added a gem trail from the butterfly and from the greeting too.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Totally Papercrafts: Layer Upon Layer
Inspire Me Fridays: Anything Goes

Crafty Ribbons/Fiskars LED canvas

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well. I am here to share a backlit canvas using my Fiskars tools in a rather unusual way. I took the canvas off from the frame and folded it in half to randomly punch across the front of the canvas. I kept the cuttings for later. I then stapled the canvas back onto the frame. Next I stapled muslin fabric across the front of the canvas. I then added Clermont Cotton Lace across the bottom of the canvas as a border. I then got out my flexmarkers and coloured the punched canvas pieces in three complimentary colours. I then asked tiny gems to the centre of each and glued them randomly like flowers across the muslin fabric.

Thank you for visiting and for all your lovely comments!
