Be Inspired Wednesday #87

Good Wednesday Morning!  

The Design Team for the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog has been having fun with paint this week!  For my project today, I covered an artist's canvas with a piece of burlap and stapled it to the back.  Then I painted it with brown acrylic paint almost to the edges.  I have had this stencil for about 25 years!  I decided it was time to drag it out and use it again!  I dabbed vanilla paint with a sponge to get the pretty cat and border at the top.  Then, I sponged more paint along the edges and sides.  I adhered the pretty three layer Provocraft Cuttlebug Butterfly (37-1651) adorned with a few brown pearls 
with Beacon 3-in-1 Glue to complete the canvas! 

This also fits the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge this week. 

This was such a fun project!  
We hope you will join the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog
in our paint challenge this week!
