Good Morning! This week the Tombow Design Team has been sharing you some amazing creations using products from Canvas Corp. I can tell you, I did not know where to start. The folks at Canvas Corp were so generous I am sure I will be sharing more projects using the rest of the goodies that were in my DT pack.
First, I chose the 4 x 6 Natural Canvas and tinted the edges by scribbling some Tombow Dual Brush pens onto a craft sheet and then lightly spritzing with water. You want just enough water to allow the ink to pool up on the craft sheet.
Drag the canvas through the ink repeating the process until you get the desired color. I used #925 Scarlet, #933 Orange, #946 Gold Ochre and a bit of #947 Burnt Sienna.
After the canvas was dry I added some print paper from my stash to create the base of my canvas piece. I used Tombow Mono Multi to adhere the paper to the canvas.
I used some Tombow Mono Aqua adhesive on the back of the vine die cuts. This adhesive dries very quickly and nice and clear which makes it the perfect adhesive for these fine die cuts.
In our DT pack was a package of canvas trim which I used to create the flower.
To create the flower, I created a running stitch down one edge of the canvas trim and gently gathered it to create the rolled flower. I dyed the flower in the same manner as the edges of the canvas. (see above for instructions). I added a Tombow Power Tab to the middle of the flower to attach the button/twine embellishment and also on the bottom of the flower to secure it to the canvas.
