thank you

Hiya. I ordered some sticky back canvas to try out. It is super cool stuff! I cut a piece with the XL Label die from MyCreativeTime. I stamped and inked it with distress stains in broken china and shabby shutter....Well I HATED how dark it turned out! But I didn't want to waste it so I did some googling and found a video about using embossing powders on the back/sticky part. So I made a little mask with my Martha Stewart butterfly punch and then heat embossed with clear powder. You can see the shine here
Because I used clear you can see the cool texture of the canvas through it. Oh and I removed the mask and white embossed that. It didn't turn out perfect, but I think it's cool. ;) Stitching through the canvas with twine was tricky, but I looked too plain without it. :) The sentiment is from 

Happy good tv night! ;)
