Coloring Canvas

Yesterday I shared a layout with misted and stamped canvas flowers.  Today I have some cards with the canvas treated in other ways.  Part one of the video focuses on the red/orange card and flower above.   One of the flowers is colored with water based markers in a very quick technique that gives you a lot of control over where your color goes.  Another thing you can do with canvas is wet and shape the canvas to add more dimension.  (There is a loud growling sound part way through the video.  I think it is a motorcycle passing on the road.  It isn't my stomach growling :-)

Part two is the stamped butterfly card.  Working with canvas gives you a great opportunity to use chalks or pastels.

The Celebrate card is going to my stepdaughter for her birthday later this month.  I thought it was perfect late summer colors and she is such an upbeat person.

Thanks for watching!
