Nautical Ribbons Beach Card

Good evening everyone, hope you are well :-) I'm sure we all have photos of pretty beach scenes in our photo collection and in my aim to print and make use of the photos I take (rather than them all sitting in a computer folder being neglected!) I thought I would find some pretty photos to make cards with. It instantly increases the stash you own for crafting being able to use what we already have! :-)
I used Papermania a All Aboard tag which I cut from a larger sheet of that paper-I then placed an eyelet and added twine which I burnt at the edges to stop it fraying. I hand wrote my sentiment on this. I used Coredinations card as my mats for the photo and the textured paper underneath. I placed this on Kraft card blank, then added my nautical ribbon from Crafty Ribbons as an embellishment, along with a wooden heart button.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Crafting from the Heart: Anything Goes
Incy Wincy Designs: Strings and Things
The Kraft Journal: Sun Challenge
The Crazy Challenge: My Summer Vacation
The Paper Girls Challenge: Red, White and Blue
Crafting at the Weekend: Anything Goes

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!
