I can't wait to see what you create using our Food/Drink theme and remember you could win a $50 gift voucher to Simon Says Stamp's store.
I cut some strips from burlap sheets to cover the outside edges of my main canvas. The adhesive I chose was double-sided Scor-Tape because I needed something really strong to keep the burlap from fraying or curling.
Here you can see the base canvas after applying the burlap strips.
Now it's time to work on my main canvas. I first cut a piece of white chipboard and applied Vintage Photo and Ground Espresso Distress Inks using my blending tool. I then stenciled some coffee stains with ground espresso distress ink randomly on the canvas using the Tim Holtz Splatters Stencil. The last step was to distress the edges using a Prima Distressing Tool and then going over that with more ground espresso distress ink.
I used a distress sprayer to create water droplets on the canvas and added a band of green corrugated card stock to the canvas.
I wanted to add more, so I stenciled some speckles onto the canvas.
When applied, it appears white but as the paste dries it will take on the distress ink that is behind it on the canvas.
While the texture paste is drying, I stamp my images with my Misti onto Strathmore Watercolor Paper and cut them out. (I didn't end up using the bag of coffee beans.)
I colored them with Distress Markers by rubbing the marker onto my craft sheet and picking up the color with a water brush.
I went over the burlap texture and edges of the canvas with Scattered Straw Distress Ink to make it pop, then I added some burlap twine to my piece and some real coffee beans. Now I'm ready to place my images onto the canvas along with the sentiment using Tim Holtz Signmaker Parts.
Here again is my finished canvas:
Thanks for sticking around to see how I created my canvas and I hope you will join in the fun at Simon Says Stamp's Monday Challenge Blog. Have a great week!!
