Cherish canvas

 Hi Friends,
Here's another little project I created for Scrapp'n Savvy. We did these wonderful canvases at our last Sampler ( where you can come and do a project and meet the various teachers and get a discount for signing up for classes). The canvas is 8 x 8. We embossed a swirl design on the canvas and then painted over it making the embossing very subtle. I then inked my edges and stamped the swirl image again over the paint to bring it out a bit more.  We used 2 x 2  chipboard squares decorated with various papers to surround the 4 x 4 image in the center. The word Cherish was cut on the Cricut- I added glossy accents and glitter to mine.  The bird and eggs are from a newly retired TAC stamp set called All things of Nature- one I love and will keep using for sure! The images are colored with Copic markers and glittered as well. The branches are real and the flowers are made from paper I colored with the matching Copics and punched out. The flower at the top is punched from an old book, inked and has a cute little button in the middle.  I added some more glitter over the swirls on the canvas for an extra punch. What do you think? It was so fun to make - I think it would be perfect for gifts...

I'm working on cards and awaiting my order of new stamps from TAC's new catalog. If you are interested in getting one let me know!

Happy Friday!
