My Time Made Easy Pretty Patterns Sketch Challenge #30

I hope you are having a good week so far! I was able to participate in this week's sketch challenge for My Time Made Easy! YAY! I love sketch challenges - they give me such a good starting point for my projects.  Sometimes I follow them to a "T" and other times, well, I kinda go off and do my own thing, but the inspiration is there! :-)  Today's project is exactly like the sketch, but I turned it on its side.

I decided to not just stamp on canvas for this challenge, I colored on canvas using some Copic markers! EEEE! They bled a little bit, but not as bad as I expected and I like the result!

The card's base is some Core'dinations stock that I sanded down and then painted with white acrylic paint - I just dry brushed some on to give it a little something extra! That beautiful patterned flower paper (my inspiration for this project) was a freebie from My Time Made Easy.  Nice, huh??!!!

I also added a little stitching on the left and I stamped the same flower onto the Kraft stock and added a little of the blue onto the center of each flower with a Q-tip.  Oh, and I'd also like to say how therapeutic it was to fray that canvas sheet... I die cut it in my Cuttlebug and it didn't fray at all, so I loved pulling the edges and making it fray myself... Then I inked it up.  Then I frayed it again.  :-)  It was kinda like bubble wrap - once I started, I didn't want to stop...

Thanks for popping in today.  Please leave me some comments - I'd love to hear your feedback!!!
