ranjini's take on the canvas corp challenge – stunning!
Today we are all in for a treat! Our little Canvas Crop/ Tattered Angels/ 7Gypsies MixUp features the sytlings of Ranjini Malhotra! Prepare to be amazed… I am in LOVE with the Memory file that she created… I had to chuckle at the similarities between what we both did, and how we used the 7Gypsies Envelopes! But I LOVE this set of the small envelopes! As usual… she makes everything looks so light and lovely! Head over to her blog, and take a peek inside.. so beautiful! (I LOVE those canvas flowers! Amazing!)
Ranjini also created these two stunning fabric postcards…
I love reading all about her ‘process’:
I loved the canvas postcard and envelope from Tattered Angels and chose to make a fabric greeting card. I used the 7 Gypsies paper tape to tape off stripes on the canvas postcard before misting it with Tattered Angels Gold Glimmer Mist. I also misted the Heidi Swapp Color Magic banner with Tattered Angels Chalkboard Glimmer Mist in Myrtle. I then pulled out my old stash of foam stamps and used pink acrylic paint to stamp the flower design at the top of the postcard. I added a pearl button in the center and one of Heidi’s epoxy word stickers in the middle. On the back of the postcard, I adhered a seven gypsies tag insert that I stamped with birthday sentiments and also stamped a rickrack square that was embellished with another pearl button. A message can be written on the 7 Gypsies tag insert. I used the pink acrylic paint on the front of the canvas envelope with foam polka dot stamps to create pattern. I masked the edges of the envelope and postcard with 7 Gypsies paper tape to ensure that the design stayed within the stitched area. I then added Heidi’s pennants that I dressed up with strips of silk fabric. This was very simple to do, and makes a lovely and unique birthday card. I love that the envelope can be re-used!
I think that it’s so inspiring that she, “pulled out my old stash of foam stamps” …sometimes we forget about the oldies but goodies! Foam stamps remain one of my favorite all time tools of the trade! I remember that flower stamp- one from Making Memories when I was working there- leave it to Ranjini to use such a soft color pallete that packs such an amazing punch! What great ideas! (the banner delights are just so fab!) Thanks Ranjini for great ‘concepts’ that can be translated onto ANY type of project! LOVE what you did!!
