A Little Bit Crafty-A Little Bit Shabby!

Good morning everyone, hope you are well! I am here with my creation for our 'a little bit shabby' challenge over at A Little Bit Crafty!
I stamped a Woodware image with Stazon on watercolour paper and coloured with Aquamarkers. I then mounted this on orange and blue card to complement the colours I used to colour the image. Next I used Bo Bunny paper, jute ribbon for texture and complimenting buttons as embellishments.

We are sponsored by the following companies so please come and play along!

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

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!
