Sticky back canvas

For my October Technique class (Fun with Texture), I thought it would be fun to play with sticky-back canvas.  I love the look and feel of canvas on card projects.  Here is a close up of the butterfly that I created on the canvas with a Unity stamp.
By embossing with clear and then coloring the canvas with inks and stains, you get kind of a batik look and feel. I used my fingernail and a nail file to fray the edges.  This is easier when you have a square piece. 

A canvas tag from Maya Road was stamped with the sentiment.  The body and the antennae are stickled (is that a real verb?).  If you haven't played with canvas, you should give it try.  Better yet ...come to my class on Saturday, October 22 at 1pm at the Hen House.  Due to popular demand, we are planning on having a Tuesday Technique Swap class.  Stay tuned for more details.
