Hi Everyone!!

Welcome to another round at DYSU.

This week at DYSU we are working with kraft paper and twine. 

 For me, that's a perfect combination for shabby and vintage cards.  

Our great sponsor's for this week are:

* Winner's Choice of 3 Images

* $15 Store Credit

* Winner's Choice of 4 Images

My card this week is showcasing an image from Hope Jacare's 

Swirly Street digi stamp.  

Swirly street digi stamp by Hope jacare - cardmaking / Scrapbooking

I coloured the image using Photoshop and then printed it on a piece of canvas.  To print the canvas I used Heat and Bond Ultrahold  iron-on adhesive.  The backing was ironed to the fabric and then leaving the backing paper on I ran the fabric through my printer.  I purchased the Heat and Bond on on J&O Fabrics >>here<<.  This is also the same material I use to stabilize and cut fabric with my digital cutter machine.  

Here is my card:

And here are some more details:

Hope I have inspired you to go and play with us at DYSU. 
 Have a wonderful day!!!
