it only took me 11 months...

11 months isn't bad, right?  I struggled with an issue I was having while working on stretched canvases.  I loved using stamps and rubons, but had trouble getting the effect I wanted because the canvases were so 'giving'. 

I never claimed to be the brightest tack in the shed, (haha), but last week an idea formed, and I brought it to hubby hoping he could see my vision and make what I needed. 

Simple really... just a board the same height as the canvas, that just fits in the opening... voila... now I can stamp and rubon to my heart's content. 

All of you that work with canvases like this are probably laughing at me right now, and thinking "DUH, Sandi...", but that's ok.  If just ONE person out there didn't think of this - then my job here is done.  :-) 


  1. LOL, not duh, I don't use a board, I usually find a book.... but I love the idea of a board! i MIGHT NEEDS ONE. :d

  2. I hadn't thought of it either! LOL I usually use one of my blocks for acrylic stamps. Your's is a much better solution :)

  3. thank you for sharing this idea!! now to get a board for my canvases:)
