2. Ink the canvas with Antique Linen and Brushed Corduroy (I was shocked that I didn't have Frayed Burlap stain. What is wrong with me?! Time to improvise.). Let dry.
3. Peel canvas from craft sheet and adhere to chipboard. The adhesive remains sticky, even after all the stain I applied - awesome!
Tim Holtz. Trace onto the back of the canvas sheet to gauge placement of stars. Roughly trim around traced image. Place canvas section on die, carefully aligning it with the cut lines, and cut.
5. Trim off tabs. Since this will be a one-sided star, you won't need them.
6. Fold and shape stars. Fray edges with Paper Distresser and lightly sand the raised area with a Sanding Grip.
8. Using Tissue Tape, create a ruffle behind rosette and glue into place (see Tim's book, Compendium of Curiosities 2, for details).
9. Cut the letters to spell 'Joy' out of idea-ology Mirrored using Tim Holtz' Word Play die. Adhere to rosettes. I also dabbed the Tissue Tape with a bit of Brushed Corduroy Distress ink and gave it a spritz of Pearl Perfect Pearls mist.
I am so in love with how all these dies work together! I didn't exactly get the burlap look I was going for, but I think I like the brown even more. Sometimes that's the beauty of working with what you have on hand - you never know what you'll come up with!
