- The Octopode Factory stamp: Steampunk Nipper Cinnamon
- Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Collection: Words for Thought (CMS132)

- Claudine Hellmuth: Sticky Back Canvas

Pop some Sticky Back Canvas onto cardstock and paint with Dab of Yellow paint. Pick up a little Dash of Red paint with a damp paintbrush and drag this across the still wet Yellow paint: they will mix together a bit to make a vivid orange colour. Add bubbles and lines using Pitch Black Dabber as per the main project. Edge the canvas with black paint. Stamp Cinnamon and print off the flower and stem, cut out and colour with Distress Markers. Stamp the sentiment onto canvas mounted onto card using Jet Black Archival and heat set. Mat the canvas onto black cardstock as shown. Use Picket Fence Distress Marker and a ruler to draw lines around the edge of the black card. Assemble onto a 5” card blank and add highlights with Glossy Accents.
Stick larger piece of canvas on card to black cardstock, pop Cinnamon into place, add the flower, put the sentiment mat onto 3D foam and place onto the cardstock. Attach this to a 5” card. Add Glossy Accents to finish.
