Neutrals and Paperwhites

I've been playing around with some primed canvas paper that painter's use as a base for their canvases. I found it in a multiple sheet pad form at Micheal's and thought that it would be great for cards and layouts too.

I wanted to play along with Flourishes' monthly Bring Back Beautiful challenge (to use neutral colours) and their Cut Above the Rest challenge (to use a cut edge) so I thought I would combine my card to meet both challenges today.

Neutral Paperwhites

supplies: stamps, Flourishes, Papertrey Ink; patterned papers, Bo Bunny; primed canvas paper, Fredrix; die cut shape, Spellbinders; butterfly charm, My Mind's Eye; inks, Ranger, Memento, Copic; brads, BasicGrey; lace, Hero Arts; cardstock, Bazzill; other, thread.

I started by die cutting a piece of the canvas paper using my Spellbinders shape and then stamping the paperwhites flower image by Flourishes right onto the masked canvas paper. I carefully coloured in my image using my Copic markers. I stamped the script by Papertrey Ink over top of my entire coloured image to tone the background down a bit.

I hope you too get a chance to play along! I just love the Flourishes challenges!

You nailed this challenge. I love that you used canvas. That gave your card a lot of texture. The butterfly is so sweet too. :)

Thanks for playing with us at BBB.
