By the Tide Canvas

I've been playing with the Canvas Creations and I've tried a couple of different ways doing the same card.

In this first sample, I stamped the images in Early Espresso and Raspberry Ripple onto the canvas, and then I sprayed with Isocol and a Bashful Blue reinker for the watery background colour - doing this after the stamping has made the image bleed a little (giving it a watery look I think).

On the second card I have coloured the canvas with the Isocol and Bashful Blue reinker first, dried it with the heat tool, and then stamped the images over the top.  This gave a really crisp finish to the images.

What do you think of the difference between the two?  For me, it's hard to choose between them!!  
Finishing touches are some raspberry ripple ribbon, a squashed soda pop top and the shell image stamped and fussy cut from the Raspberry Ripple.  These colours are used in the Colour Challenge at Just Add Ink this week and so I am entering into the challenge.  I have also used the great layout that was used in the challenge for the week before which was a sketch challenge.  I think this is a great design sketch, but I didn't get to enter the challenge last week...... but here it is now!!


  1. I personally love the crisp lines of the second one, but they are both lovely! Thought the layout looked familiar, very clever way to combine the two Just Add Ink challenges Julia. Thanks for joining us this week.

  2. Ooh, clever technique, Julia! I do like the watery look of the first canvas creation, but the crisper images are my favourite. Great use of this week's colours, and last week's sketch! Thanks for playing along with us at Just Add Ink. :)
