Colouring on Canvas




Hello everyone,  I've had some fun today, I was supposed to be at a crop with my dear friends but alas due to circumstances I had to cancel.  So I thought I would try something new.  I bought some of these sweet mini canvas bags with the intention of altering them to hold small Christmas gifts!!! I know!!! it's too early, sorry but I love to be organised and start all my festive projects early. 

I've used 3 Magnolia stamps and masked two of them them, Tilda with skates (limited edition 2011) and my Noel sentiment for Tilda to sit on. Both were coloured with copics. My To&From sentiment is a Magnolia stamp.  Top left sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps as is the bottom circular one but I only inked up half of it.

I've finished off the wee bag with a Magnolia doohickey tag die with some lace, raffia and ribbon. Oops! nearly forgot to mention that the snowflakes have been stickled with the colour waterfall.

Thank you for popping in to visit, I hope you all have a wonderful day ahead of you.

Gorgeous. I've tried to colour on canvas bags but when I used copics the colour really seeped out over the lines. Did you use copics to colour this? It looks perfect - no running colours outside your lines at all. And you did all that masking too. It is fabulous. I love it.
