Canvas, wreath and post box - anything but a card!

It's another double sponsor month, and I've enjoyed making anything but a card with each of my design team images.

First up is the fabulous 'Snow Kissed Snowman' from artbymiran. Laser printed in reverse onto copy paper, and then image transferred onto 2½x3½" canvas using a lot of matte multi-medium so that the dips in the canvas are filled. Coloured with ProMarkers, embellished with Star Dust Stickles and sealed with Krylon Triple Thick Clear Glaze:

Next up is another gorgeous image from Delicious Doodles, 'Holly+Rosehip Wreath'. This works so well as the shading is already done, and by colouring with ProMarkers which are translucent, there's no need for complicated techniques. I've layered up several copies, decoupage style, and added accents with a white ink gel pen before using Glossy Accents to cover the berries and hips. Ideal for hanging decorations on a bit of ribbon - try reversing the image before printing to make a double sided wreath.

And this is the delightfully rural 'Jolly Holly Postbox'. Though I consider tags just a card without a hinge bit, with a bit of matting and embellishment I've created a fancy gift tag to frame my final image for this month:

Until next month, happy crafting!
