A 'stitched' canvas

Back in November I won a canvas kit from the mega-talented Kath........it was a 'spare' from a workshop she'd tutored....and contained everything needed to make this canvas....including the stamps.This was a perfect blog candy prize for me.......to make as a birthday gift for a 'stitchy' friend.
Christmas got in the way a bit.......but now it's finally made.......I followed a lot of Kath's instructions.......but put my own twist on it.
I started by covering the canvas with old torn up tissue dressmaker's pattern......brushed over with diluted cream paint to tone it down a bit.......and stamped on it with some of the 'stitching' stamps......then added some of Kath's prepared pieces......as well as some extra ones I cut out.
This has definately made me think more about stamping on fabric.......not something I've done much before.......it really worked well.
So thank you very much for this,Kath........I love it.....and hope my friend will as well.

I really like the canvas the colours are very calming somehow! What I am unsure of is which bits are fabric? Is it the blue spotty bits? I have stamped on felt before but interesting to see how stamping actually works on fabric xxx
