Playing - WIP

I was sitting watching TV tonight waiting for the dinner to cook, when a thought struck me that my new labels die (I have had it a week and NEEDED to use it!) may work with sticky back canvas.... which I know takes sprays beautifully....  So -
I was amazed at how well the die cut the canvas... this is coloured with wild honey before spritzing with the perfect pearls sunflower sparkle. You can't see the colour of the spray, particularly but I love the shimmer - though that doesn't really show in the scan.... Overstamped it with the small rockstar heart in walnut stain.     Just need to find something to fit it to now! (hence the WIP part of the title!)
 And I couldn't leave the second label plain - so this is the adirondack purple twighlight spray, with heirloom gold perfect pearl. I love this purple....
And because the craft sheet had some excess spray round the labels, I mopped it up on a tag.  I love how it drips if you stand the tag up whilst the spray is still wet (I shook it actually to help it along - great fun!)

I was going to do an underwater type scene but couldn't find any fish stamps (I know I have some somewhere....)  Maybe when I have some blue/green sprays!!
The butterflies are polymer unmounted stamps by Impression Obsession and I don't think I've ever used them before!!  The swirly stamp is from a Wendy Vecchi set. Just a bit of fun to use up some spray on the craftsheet, but I quite like how it turned out!

Love what you've done with the die cuts, but the tag is fantastic, it looks wonderful. Have you tried the new Jennie Bowlin paints and die pads? Sorry shouldn't encourage you to spend, you don;t need any help, lol.

Hi Helen

Useful to know they will cut through fabric, never tried it I have to confess.

Love the piece with the wings and swirls, wonderful colours.
