Ohhh Snap

Those are so cute! Thanks for sharing : )


Wow! How beautiful!!! What a great idea!!!


Beautiful. They would make beautiful accents on a wall or anywhere.


Love how these look!! Just a suggestion - I would probably put a little "box" behind the canvas to support it when stamping. Although, as you said it can add to the look if a bit is missing. Thanks for this wonderful idea!

Kari D

As always, you inspire!

sharri reeves

Oh, I really love these, off to Walmart for me.

Viola Rohner

Wow,thank you so much,Viola

Holly Saveur

So very cute them!

Gayle Hathaway

Very impressive!!

Angela Bowie

Gorgeous and such a great idea! I'm surprised the dye ink works so well with water. Going to try this as I'm fond of a technique that emulates another, yet takes much less time and skill!

Sandra Masson

What a great idea. I think I am going to have to try it. TFS


I, too, am enthralled with watercoloring but I never thought of doing it on canvas. This would be a great thing to do for our Girls' Week project.

THese are adorable. I have often looked at these mini easels too - and wondered what I could use them for! THANK you for the great and lovely inspiration :)

jan metcalf

Sweet inspiration!

Leslie Turner

This is such an awesome technique which I've seen several times before but didn't know quite how it was done! Thanks for explaining exactly how you did it! I even have some of these little canvases... can't wait to try this!

These are adorable! I am also dabbing in water colors. You get such vibrant colors. Keep up the good work and post so we can see you are doing.

Teresa Currie

Betsy, what a great tutorial for a very fun project!! Thank you so much!!


What a fun technique, can't wait to give it a try!


So cute, Betsy! These would make a sweet gift or even a gift tie-on. Love them. Thank you for this great idea.

Gloria R.

An adorable housewarming project idea! Thanks.

Cindy O

Lovely! Thanks for the tutorial and showing how it looked before you brushed with water.


Betsy, these are just too cute! A couple of questions:
What size are they?
Were they sold individually?
And, how much were they?

I see a trip to Walmart in the next few days for me! Thanks!


These are absolutely fabulous. I've got to try this idea!!!



Marianne McGinnis

Betsy, you might not call yourself a painter, but you are definitely an artist! and not just on this project!

kim b

Uhhh...brilliant. That is all.

Note to self: stop by Walmart on the way home tonight.

Judy Goodson

This is a great technique I've wanted to try, and you made it look so easy. Thanks so much for sharing!


I need to do some of these pieces of art! I've wanted to do something like that for years, now I cannot wait. Thanks so much Betsy for sharing your creativity with us!

Diana K

Such lovely, inspiring work. Pure Betsy.

Claudia are inspirational !! I too would love to throw on my smock and beret and paint masterful works of art...NOT going to happen. But I have been loving dabbling with the watercolor/stamping concept. Love this...thanks again!

Polly Lemire

I love the watercolor trend, too! I really liked the texture of the canvas coming through on yor paintings. When I was taking a class in applying watercolor techniques to card making, I found some 100% COTTON CANVAS that comes in PADS made specifically for all water-based paints! It's really cool; can be cut to size with my regular paper cutter. I ordered it from an art supply store --manufactured byFredrix. I've just started experimenting with it.

Carolynn Wilson

So pretty!

Carol Ann Ater

I'm off to WalMart. What a fun project.

Donna. Meyers

Beautiful projects, Betsy! Thank you for sharing. I just made a watercolor picture frame based on your tutorial.

Mini beauties that pack a punch! I have all the supplies needed, thanks so much for the inspiration!!!
