Lots of Texture with Canvas Resist and Edge Puncher Rosette

CTMH Backgrounds and Borders stamped onto Sticky Back Canvas

This card was inspired by The Sweet Stop Sketch 125.  I wanted to use a new (to me) technique that I just learned from an online class with Jennifer McGuire.  I've always loved using fabric in stamping and was very disappointed when Close To My Heart discontinued selling their twill and linen adhesive backed fabric.  The stuff I used on this card is Claudine Hellmuth's White Sticky Back Canvas (12" by 12".) It is available at many scrapbooking stores. This fun technique is easy to do and gives a beautiful, very textural  effect. 
Of course, I used an edger punch to make the rosette.  This is a new one that I haven't posted yet.
Fiskars Diamond Border Punch with Paper Rosette 
 This rosette was made with two 12 inch strips of CTMH Wonderland paper.  One was 1 inch wide, the other 1 1/2 inches wide.  After scoring and folding the paper strips, I adhered them as one flower. See the photo below.

 The rosette was embellished with part of a fancy brad set from Hobby Lobby.  I took the brad out and covered over the hole with a CTMH Blue Sparkle instead.

Love that sparkle!

 I used a few bits and pieces of some Spellbinder die cuts that I had left over from other projects.  These were embellished with CTMH Pearl Adhesive Gems.

The sentiment was stamped with Crystal Blue ink and  popped up with foam tape
The seam tape ribbon was colored with Breeze Recollections Chalk ink.  This is the same ink used on the canvas after embossing.  I painted it with Tattered Angels Glam paint.  Which removed almost all the color!  So when it was dry I re-inked the canvas.  A good learning process. :-)
