FTTC242 - Believe

Hello!  It's Tuesday and time for another Flourishes blog challenge:  

Flourishes just released 3 beautiful stamp sets and I just couldn't resist using one of them for this challenge, Handmade Snowflakes.  I cut out my canvas oval with an oval die-namic but first, I adhered it with scor-tape to a piece of plain cardstock to give it some sturdiness and to keep it from fraying.  My little tip of the day ;)  I then stamped two snowflakes in pink lemonade and the sentiment in hot fudge directly onto the canvas.  I then stamped several snowflakes on the larger layer in pink lemonade, using the stamping-off technique on the smaller ones, hot fudge ink and kraft ink.  The polka dots on the scalloped kraft layer weren't stamped - it's washi tape!  I covered a piece of cardstock with the washi tape then ran it through with one of my scalloped die-namics.  I got the idea from Tenia's HYCCT challenge on SCS.  Some kraft ribbon and chocolate pearls add the finishing details.  The sketch is from the Blueprints 1.

Close up...

    How beautiful! I love the pink and brown snowflakes! Thanks for the tip on putting canvas on cs. I've never used canvas before, but now I am eager to give it a try.
