I have had this sweet little canvas frame in my collection for awhile now and had been wondering what to do with it.  We also came out with a stamp of my favourite Bible verse, so thought I would feature this on this canvas as a reminder...

Sadly this did not this did not turn out as I had hoped, but you can get the idea.  I did try this on a piece of cardstock first and it worked great with our regular ink as you can see here:
I may have to modge podge the trial onto the frame at a later date.  I will live with the canvas for awhile and think about this.  This just goes to show that not every idea works.
I used the pigment inks on the canvas in smokey plum and outdoor denim on the 6X6 canvas frame.

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Sherri of sherisays-justscrapit .

Mother's Day card with Freshly made sketches

Another week has flown by, after helping/assisting hubby with the planting of our 150 + dahalia bulbs.  Love my part just figuring out where each one should go, he digs and plants.  Mind you he had already planted a ring around our vegetable garden with the ones that we have many multiples of, but do I ever enjoy the multitude of blooms in the summer fall.  
Now on to a challenge to us this sketch found at freshly made sketches

Here is what I came up after spending the afternoon playing with some colour combinations: 
Supplies used all Close to my Heart:
Dream Pop paper pack (only available this month)
Perfect Fit - Mom C1543 stamp set
Hollyhock ink
