A Little Bit Crafty: Are we there yet? Midway Inspiration

Good morning everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with a midway inspiration project for our 'Are we there yet?' challenge at A little Bit Crafty. I used Papermania All Aboard collection of papers and embellishments, a sentiment stamp and a canvas butterfly I made. I used a photo of a cat sleeping in a historical monument from an old holiday album and stamped an 'Enjoy the moment' sentiment in Stazon ink onto the All Aboard ribbon. I matted the photo on two colours of cardstock, then created my sketch using other papers from the set. I added a sentiment embellishment to the top of the photo. Lastly I added my butterfly which I made by cutting a butterfly out of canvas with a spellbinders die, colouring it with Mister Hueys ink and then stamping with stazon inks using a swirl stamp.

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!
