Snoopy Love

Okay I said I would show some birdcage cards today but I changed my mind because I wanted to show my latest mini canvas.  This is a little gift I made for my lovely boyfriend, Andy.

I bought some mini canvases that come with cute little easels from The Works, such a bargain at 99p each!  I covered it with some Sugar Dumpling paper from Art from the Heart.  Then sealed that with a border of Tim Holtz tissue tape edged with distress spiced marmalade.  The heart is die cut from grungeboard and stained with distress Mustard Seed and Barn door and then covered in Rock Candy crackle.  I typed the words and printed out Snoopy.  I used glossy accents on Woodstock to give him more dimension.  I layered Snoopy to make him stand out .... actually in truth I kept getting yellow ink all over him so had to ... ahem .... cover up my mistakes (too many times to mention!), quite pleased with his 3D effect :).

I enjoyed making this and really it's no bigger than an ATC so I'm going to be making more as, unlike the bigger canvases, you don't need so many things to cover it.

I will be back tomorrow with the bird cage cards.

Thanks for stopping by ...
