Fun Cube

I made the first cube using cardstock and the cardstock failed after just a few times. I wanted to change to fabric, but couldn't figure out the best way to attach it to the cube. Then I thought of Claudine Hellmuth's sticky canvas-back. Eureka! It's the perfect choice. I made a prototype and I'm happy to report it's working like a charm.

Look at all the surfaces just begging to be altered. I misted with Maya Road and Memories, inked with Distress Inks and stamped with black pigment ink. Due to the texture of the canvas, I couldn't get a rich black effect I wanted. But you can see the mist resisting the pigment slightly.




Now I'm going make another, and I definitely want to put some photos on it using photo transfer technique.
Off to find the photos!!
