Then I used Mod Podge to glue it onto the canvas. This was what it looked like on the canvas before I painted it (above). This is what my canvas looked like after I painted it with some discontinued CTMH pearl paint mixed with Lagoon Re-inker and painted on with a paintbrush.
Then I added some extra stamping in Colonial White Ink on the top left hand corner. Following the Pinterest suggestions I didn't use a block to stamp onto the canvas (just my hand). I made lots of cards with this paper and stamp set this week. Using an idea one of our consultants Steph Sinc shared with consultants to use the black Marvy® Uchida® LePen™ Journaling Penover the seaglass stamped flower. Then using two colours of the ShinHan Marker - Peacock Green & Turquoise Blue shading. My shading needs some work I feel but I do like the look. Then I fussy cut it out and popped it on the below card. The below is the Colonial White ink stamped onto Kraft Paper with the White/Gold ribbon tied around. The next two cards were from a sample we made at our last crop day and I just added titles to it. Remember this great set of productsis ONLY available throughout May from my website or from your Close to My Heart Consultant.
