Today I have an altered canvas to share:
I used the back side of an artist's canvas. The paper was fussy-cut, sponged, and then glued to the frame. Another sheet of the same paper was cut and adhered on the inside. I love the vintage look and Spring feel of this paper.
Isn't the 'I Love you more!' sentiment beautiful? It is from the Big Wishes II stamp set. The sentiment was first layered on tulle and then on a hand-crafted rosette.
How about the romantic 'Thinking of You Always' ticket? It is from the versatile Vintage Tickets stamp set (there is a coordinating Vintage Tickets Cut File!). A Small Flower finished off the pretty corner embellishment.
I created the commemorative wording in Word and used two sizes of the Fancy Label Dies 1 to cut and mat.
The Anniversary banner was die cut twice and slightly overlayed.
I created a frame using the Memories Express Edge die.
Tulle and pearls add to the romantic look and feel of my altered canvas.
That's it for my post today. I hope you liked my altered canvas and that it gave you some ideas for using Inspired By Stamping and Die-Versions products! It's time now to hop along for more inspiration.
Your next stop on the hop is Kendra Sand's blog, and if you ever get lost in the hop you can always go to the Die-Versions blog for the complete order list.
Happy hopping! Don't forget to leave some love along the way.
Good luck in the Grand Prize Drawing!
