My project started out as just a piece of raw canvas, to which I added stamps from the "At Ground Level" set. Then I stitched over many of the lines with my sewing machine:
I added clouds from the "Create Your Day" stamp set, and some colour using Inktense pencils & water. I also stamped some background texture using a stamp from the "Abc-123-Washi" set, and the "In Circle Me" stamp.
I decided the colours didn't 'pop' as much as I would like, so I added india inks, and a little more Inktense (but using the blocks this time):
The final steps were adding a few touches of colour with Smooch inks:
and a bit more sewing (and fraying the edges):
Here's a close-up of some of the stitching:
And the final project, again. I was originally planning to put this on a card, but my daughter has laid claim to it, and it will be mounted in a shadowbox for her bedroom, instead. :)
