Canvas Resist Technique

My sticky-back canvas finally arrived so I was able to finish up Row 1 of the Techniques class.  Life has been rather busy so it's taken me awhile to finish this up.  This was the first time I've done this technique and I'm enjoying using the Tim Holtz Distress Inks on these projects.  I can see that I'm going to have to purchase some additional colors.  The good thing is if you use the sponges to apply your ink, you can save those sponges and re-use them.

I used SU Confetti Cream for the base of this card using SU Crumb Cake to stamp SU Petite Print as the background.  I used an image from SU Day of Gratitude stamped with Versamark on the Sticky Back Canvas and embossed it using white embossing powder.  Then using the Tim Holtz Sponge Applicator, I used Distress Inks - Walnut Stain, Peeled Paint, Fried Brick, and wild Honey and randoming inked up the image.  The added touches - stamped "hello" from SU Pennant Parade using Crumb cake on Confetti Cream and punched it out with the SU Window Punch.  I tied a bow using a piece of twine and adhered a flower sticker from Sandylion stickers to finish it off.

This is a photo of my first row of techniques.
