Kudzu Cafe Canvas Board

I decorated this canvas board using the gorgeous new stamps by Artistic Outpost called Kudzu Cafe. I used patterned tissue paper first - you can buy similar here - then sponged on Distress Inks and stamped with a selection from the set, then added more prominent ones on tissue paper in different shades of ink. I also used the small mesh stamp from Whimsical Melange which is a great 'filler' stamp for adding visual texture.  I stamped the Kudzu Cafe on glossy card and coloured it with Distress Markers. Finally I added some die cut vines climbing around the cafe to represent the prolific Kudzu vine.

I hope this is colourful enough to brighten up your world and encourage you to join in this month's challenge!


  1. Wow Lucy - this is gorgeous - and I really moving me towards getting out my stamps and having a play.
