I chose to make a general card today, using an old leaf branch stamp from my stash. I knew immediately what I wanted to do with it. Don't you love when that happens....a stamp just sparks an idea? It doesn't happen often enough for me, but when it does, I just go with it.

Verse - Simon Says Stamp Blessed clear set
Stencil - The Crafter's Workshop Mini Believe Script
Other: Tim Holtz distress inks and markers, Brilliance galaxy gold ink pad, ink blending tool, cotton swab, India Ink pad, Misty tool, Canson Canva-Paper
To create the card, I sponged some distress inks onto a panel of canvas paper, in the general shape of the stamp. Then I used the script stencil to apply distress ink, and some gold ink here and there. I used my heat tool to dry the panel, then inked the stamp with my mini ink pads in various greens, and stamped it onto the panel.
I used distress markers in the same colors to create shading and depth to the leaves. I used a cotton swab to add some gold directly from the ink pad, and also added some dots to the background with the used swab and gold.
I stamped the verse, using my Misty so that I could stamp it enough times to get all the detail, as the paper is quite textured, and I knew it would need to be restamped. A few black spatters of ink, and a swipe of gold and green around the outer edges finish off the panel, which I attached to a green A2 card base.
I thought this stamp was a great candidate for stamping on canvas.
I am adding this card to The Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge, and also to these challenges:
