Stampers for Others-March Challenge!

I went masculine this month for our Stampers for Others Challenge. The challenge was to use the following colors:

I used our "Canvas Creations",  which is a blank canvas that you can stamp on and even though it feels exactly like a thick fabric, our framelits can cut right through this material:

I really like the splotchy look of the ink once you stamp it on this canvas. I also used "Sponge Daubers" to add some color to the sky and water. The best way to adhere this type of medium is to use "Sticky Strip":

I used the de-bossed side of the "Cloudy Day Textured Impressions Folder" as I thought the reverse dots were portrayed better and the definition of the clouds really popped with the color combination we used this month.
