Crafty Sentiments Designs GDT 'Spots or Stripes'

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-)
Here I am with my first Guest design project for May for Crafty Sentiments, whose theme is 'Spots or Stripes'. I was given a fabulous digi by Crafty Sentiments that was perfect for the challenge! I coloured him with Promarkers and Flexmarkers and cut round him with a circle nestie. I used Sarah Hurley polka dot papers, Dovecraft polka dot buttons, Happy Birthday sentiment, American Crafts Ribbon and Lace, and a Vintage button from my stash. I wanted to make a focal point of the buttons and I think I managed this quite well!

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Bunny Zoes Crafts: Ribbon or Twine
Dis Digi Designs: Animal Friends
Little Claires Designs: Doing the Rounds
Cute Card Thursdays: Animals

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!
