3/19 By the Tide Canvas Creation

 

Yesterday I posted a customer favorite, today I'm posting a creation very similar except that I changed out the colors, added a sentiment and stamped on canvas!

And, I have a confession to make . . . when I first got the canvas . . . I didn't like it because it seemed to compromise the stamped images making them look fuzzy-like. OK, I KNOW that's the whole point, but fuzziness just doesn't look good to me . . . even when it is supposed to! So yesterday, I pulled out some of that canvas and decided to give it another try. Except, I accidentally stamped my first image on the back side and low and behold . . . I got a pretty crisp looking image! So I continued stamping on the back side of the canvas, and then I sponged it and what you see above is what I created!! And now I LIKE canvas, as long as I'm stamping on the backside of it!

However, if I were to remake this card, I would stamp second generation plants. I think they came out just a little too dark . . . but not bad. I will happily mail this card to my dad to wish him good luck on the fishing opener this spring! (provided the ice ever melts as it is 9 degrees right now!!)

Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by Stamping to Share!!
