The Canvas Affair Continues...

Here is ANOTHER card using my new favorite thing... canvas!

I started this card for the weekly challenge over at the Hero Arts Blog. This weeks theme is tags, so I started by making a canvas tag by cutting a long strip and then folding over a flap at the top. I used my cropadile to set a couple eyelets to hold the flap in place, and then tied some raffia between them. I stamped the sentiment with paint so it would show up stronger on the canvas. I inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

The felt flowers are from Hero Arts. I stuck them down on yellow pp from K&Co. (Wild Saffron collection) and then cut them out. The leaves are also Hero Arts from a set of poinsettias, so I cut them up for use here.

Here is a full list of materials:
K&Co. Wild Saffron paper
Americana paint

Thanks for looking!!
