Are you ready for a challenge?

It is time for another Limelight Papercrafts sketch and product challenge!  This week we are focusing on using canvas!  I have one sweet little canvas tag to show you.

{supplies: cs – Bazzil, pp – Basic Grey Sugar Rush; ribbon – Michaels; canvas – Basic Grey Sugar Rush tag; punches – Ek Success square punch & corner rounders; embossing folder – Cuttlebug Swiss Dots}

I’ll let you in on a secret… I really love this new paper.  You see, I am not a big fan of purple.  Just not one of my top colors (so sorry purple, nothing personal).  Initially, I was a bit hesitant about it, but I {heart} Sugar Rush!!!  Once my Basic Grey Sugar Rush paper pad and canvas tags arrived in the mail… I couldn’t wait to get started.  This sweet paper just had me swimming with ideas.

The heart is cut out of the oblong tag at the bottom of the sheet.  Initially, I tried to trace a heart onto the canvas tag with a pencil.  But it is was really hard to erase the lines from the canvas.  So, I created a simple little template instead.  I traced a heart on some scrap paper then quickly cut around it not really caring about actually cutting the heart out (you will want to leave an edge).  Next, I used some removable adhesive to stick the heart template to the canvas tag.  Now cut out around the lines of the heart, remove your template and you have your heart cut from the canvas tag.

Hope you play along.  This is one great sketch and product challenge.
