Tim Holtz Vintage Shabby Chic Canvas

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are all well and enjoying the blissful weather! Here I am with a Canvas I have made for my brother to give to a colleague, I hope she likes it!
I used a plain white canvas, and cut out Butterflies with Spellbinders dies, and a flower with Tim Holtz Tattered florals die out of Tim Holtz Vintage Shabby cardstock. I arranged these and folded and shaped them how I liked the look of them-where they are light cardstock they have the strength to do this where paper wouldn't.
I then glued them on with strong glue, and stamped around them with assorted flourish stamps I own in Distress inks.
Lastly I added stamped corners and a button which complimented my design as the flower centre.
What do you think?

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!
