Mini Stretched Burlap Canvas

Today I’m featuring one of the stretched canvas’ Cropstop carries in the store. This one is a mini (4 x 4) one made of burlap.  I decided to make an interchangeable piece of decor with mine. Here’s step by step instructions for creating this little piece of art:

I cut 6 pieces of manila cardstock into 2 3/4 x 3 1/4 inch pieces

Using Tim Holtz Distress Crayons, I colored each piece in season-coordinating colors and rubbed them in with a slightly wet finger

Using the Happy Everything Blueprints Stamp Set (Tim Holtz) and Ground Espresso Distress Ink I stamped six different images on my tags

I distressed the edges and inked them with sponge daubers

The last step was matting each tag on coordinating colors of cardstock . You could achieve the same look using distress inks. Here are the colors I used for each tag:
