I recently ordered (and have in stock) some A4 sheets of Canvas Cloth for a kit I am putting together and yesterday I created two layouts using this product and was suitably impressed. The product is from Personal Impressions and is a true canvas line cloth with a traditional surface as used by artists to produce classic reproductions.
'The special texture creates the feel and look of a classic painting. Use for rubber stamping and on ink jet printers - great vintage effects when you stamp on the reverse side' - this is the description given by the manufacturer, so I thought I would try the product out and give my review.
The rose and leaves image is a downloadable freebie I was given by Glitz Design and (by a happy accident) printed this off larger than I intended. Rather than throw it away I decided to use it on the layout I was creating and it gives a beautiful effect.
This flower was made using a BigShot and Tattered Florals Die, which cuts through the canvas like butter, leaving no frayed edges! I used the reverse side and inked it using a dye ink pad to give a vintage feel to the cut flower.
These are my findings for the review:
Cost: Seems quite pricey for a whole pack (but worth it). It would be a great idea for a craft club - share it out as there are 5 sheets to each pack and then that works out at about £1.50 per sheet.
Use: I could see loads of different uses for this product - like it says on the pack, you can print on it, paint on it, ink on it ..... probably many other uses too. It cuts like a dream through the BigShot!
Overall Impression: I absolutely love this product - next to Safmat I can see this becoming a favourite.
