Canvas Workshop

Yesterday, we had a crafty day in Hazel Grove decorating a canvas.
We used a flat canvas as they are much easier to stamp on...
Colour was added by using PanPastels, then Versafine ink and the Nature 1 stamp set from IndigoBlu was used to add the detail. Once the clouds had been added, an eraser was used to take the colour out and reveal the white cloud (as the regular crafters know....I do like my rotating eraser...). 

I used blue tones and shades, but some of the crafters went for other colour options and I have to say that Mark's grey canvas, Janet's green canvas and Margaret's lemon canvas all looked stunning and I'm now going to have to try these. 
Some ribbon, embellishments and it was finished...these really are quite quick to make and look great either on an easel or hung on a wall....
Also, brilliant idea for a gift....Birthday or dare I say the 'C' word.....yes.....
Speaking off which, have you seen the brilliant shows on Ideal World and C&C over the past few days...
Great to see all the new products and I still get excited when I see my designs plus those from the other members of the Design Team....fantastic job all....
Back to yesterday, we even had time to make a card....and this is it...

Using the same stamps, a bit of masking and an oval shape punched out of Linen card, we created this card which could be used for many different occasions. 
Thanks for looking in today, I am off now to prepare for the workshop in Buxton on Saturday....
Just a reminder, that the following Saturday....29th July, I will be at CJ CardCrafts in Edgeley ....where we are having an IndigoBlu workshop using PanPastels, FlitterGlu and Flakes.....if you want to book or need any info just phone Glynis on 0161 477 7027. 
Take care, Jo. X
