Dream Valley Challenges: Sports

Hey everyone, hope you are well :-) Here I am with my DT card for Dream Valley Challenges where our theme is 'Sports'. Well I chose sailing as this is my favourite stamp of the moment! I stamped onto watercolour paper and die cut round the image. I then colour washed it with Aquamarkers and I was really pleased with how it came out :-) I used Tim Holtz paper with some jute ribbon. I then added buttons as my embellishments and a little 'Thinking of you' dome greeting :-)

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Creative Craft Challenges: For the Fellas
Creative Inspiration Paint: Fathers Day
Here Come the Boys: Use Ribbon

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!
