Canvas with metal

Another birthday or two, another canvas or two! I made 2 similar canvases for friends with birthdays. I painted the canvases purple because one of them loves purple, then stamped a swirly flourish with Victorian Violet Brilliance ink. I made the heart embellishment by cutting up an aluminium can, then running it through the Wizard with a small Cuttlebug heart die. It left a deep mark in the cutting mat... I ran it thought the Wizard again in the little embossing folder, to emboss it, and gave it a coat of Ranger alcohol inks - Eggplant, Currant and Wild Plum.

Finally, I adhered the heart and buttons using sticky dots. I hope both friends like their presents!


  1. You have been having lots of fun, and I love all your new projects. Haven't tried metal in the cuttlebug folder, thanks for all the great ideas!!! Love the purple canvas!

  2. This friend loves it-its mine amm mine.I must try a can-I love the distressed look on the heart with the inks.

  3. Great canvas... have enjoyed looking at your work..will be back!!
