Wendy Vecchi Challenge #49: Use Canvas

EWVMAC49jpgThis week we're prompted to use canvas and at least one Studio 490 stamp in the Wendy Vecchi yahoo group challenge.

I've used Claudine's Sticky Back Canvas and Tim's (Sizzix) flourish die for mine.

I was inspired by Julia's recent creation to use an On-the-Edge Sizzix die as a hanging border; I used the iron gate for mine and attached it with XL eyelets using the Crop-o-Dile.

I've used lots of lots of Wendy's Studio 490 stamps on this one along with distress and archival inks.

The large flourish stamp is Tim's and the bird is a favorite from Stampers Anonymous.

Simon Says Stamp and Show has No Rules this week, so I'll enter this there as well.

Thanks so much for the visit!

    The Queen of vibrant colours and layered stamping strikes again – fabulous. I have ink envy and diaper overload…. Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. Sarah.

    That border is a beautiful touch.
    Oh I just love canvas but strangely enough never tried the sticky backed version.
    Your green is so lush.

    I love this two part tag… gorgeous colours and stamping! But it’s the dangling part, deliciously die-cut, which really steals my heart – wonderful!

    Well well Marjie, did I get a shock when I was reading your post and there is MY NAME in the text – actually, I didn’t know it was me but I did think the hanging border looked like the idea I use!
    Love what you’ve done and so honoured that I actually inspired someone else! Beautiful colours and composition.
    Thanks to Buttons too for mentioning me in her comment!
    Think I’m up to date now. . . !

  19. Julie Case on August 23, 2012 at 9:41 am

    This is beautiful, Marjie! I love the colors. The hanging gate is a great feature. I love how it seems like an actual refection of the top.

    Just stunning Marjie – gorgeous colours and I love the border punched at the bottom of the tag!

  31. kathy/NorthCarolina on August 22, 2012 at 4:28 pm

    Gosh…this is maybe my favorite to date. I love the three diamonds stamped/stenciled on the left. The iron gate border adds such a fun surprise at the bottom of the tag. The bird, flying toward the sky, is so uplifting! And I love that warm “river” of orangey gold that runs through the center of the piece. Magnificent!

  32. trisha too on August 22, 2012 at 4:13 pm

    Another gorgeous tag, such rich colors! Wonderful, Marjie!

  33. debi ryan on August 22, 2012 at 3:14 pm

    Marjie, this is as yummy and as stunning as usual, love how the flourishes look so comfortably part of the background, Debi x

  34. artefaktotum on August 22, 2012 at 2:58 pm

    What an amazing tag, love how you combined all things and the border below.
    Hugs Anja

  35. Terry on August 22, 2012 at 2:32 pm

    Love those colors and that background! So cool with the bird and great idea to hang the fence! Have a fabby evening!

  36. Candy on August 22, 2012 at 1:02 pm

    Marjie, your tag is beautiful! I love your blended colors…the yellow and green is so pretty. Love the iron gate die hanging from the bottom. That bird and sentiment are lovely, too. Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
