Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) Here I am with my DT card for One Stitch at a Time, and our theme this week is 'Sun'. I chose this lovely forest digi from the store, and coloured with my copics, a mix of pale yellows and warm yellows. I then used Papermania Capsule Collection papers and Cardstock to mat my image on. I then embellished with a 3D butterfly and gem trail, then lastly added a 'Just for you' greeting.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
365 Cards: Fun in the Sun
Catch the Bug: Anything Goes
Crafty Calendar: Fun in the Sun

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!
