I know that is a little early for Christmas projects, but I was intrigued by the Simon Says Stamp Blog hop. The theme was "Holiday Fun". As in Greece we don't celebrate Halloween or Thanksgiving, I decided to make something for Christmas.

I used a small canvas (7x8 cm) I had for ages, with Tim Holtz' s Santa stamp, some tissue stripe, my new Nellie Snellen punches, a Toga brad and my ever-present distress inks.


Here is the result, but I have to confess that I have never tried to stamp on canvas so I had some problems. At first I tried a Chalk ink as I wanted Santa to be somehow fade. The result was invisible, so I turned to StazOn. I know that the stamp is already distressed, but I was hoping to a more clear image! LOL...





I made a rather unfortunate attempt to add the pictures of my project in a Digi Christmass Layout. I just saw it and it seems that my entry is a layout and not a small canvas. So, I uploaded an extra photo to avoid misunderstandings, as I have already linked to the challenges the one with the background. And I will never ever again try to put a background in the photos of my projects.

I will submit the canvas and NOT the layout to the following challenges:

Sorry about the confusion I created!

  14. Oooh canvas, I love working with that! Try versafine, you'll still get the lines but it seems to give a little better coverage, I found stazon too dry so it didnt take to the canvas so well and you can colour it with all the sprays and distress inks etc (I do it beforehand then dry it off and stamp)

    Really great project, well done!

    Thank You for joining us at The Stampman x
