Linnie Blooms and amazing Canvas Project

This month at Linnie Blooms I had a chance to create using this fabulous canvas pillow case...
and amazing new product coming to the store later in August. 
I haven't dont any stitching for years now.. but it was coming back to me .. just like riding a bike.
No even sure of the names of the stitches... but I am thrilled with my finished pillow case.
I still need to buy the proper inner cushion but substituted for now to get a finished photo.

I started this project with my tree first. I inked the trunk and stamped the leaves 
with textured stamp and green ink. I then added the twine tied buttons.
Next  up was the inked leaves and the stamped look for more depth and texture.
Stamping of the sunburst and the background was next before adding the tree, leaves and  piece of burlap.

Next I stamped the words which I hand stitched using embroidery floss from my stash.
The design was still a bit off so I sew easy inked rolled the lower and side edge with the
stitch pattern which I then hand stitched over top with a varigated coloured embroidery floss.
I didn't worry about the ink splatter.. it added depth and rustic look to my projcet.

I love the creative use of your embellishments- that is a great use for the extra button that comes with new clothing.
