A Thousand Hugs Card

I'm having a lovely time stamping and making cards today.  I love the look of the canvas paper, and decided to have a play with it again today....
Stamps:  Ellen Hutson Mondo Hydrangea
               Ellen Hutson Lovely Set
               Various assorted background stamps from my stash
Inks:  Tim Holtz distress inks and markers

I stamped the hydrangea onto canvas paper (see previous post for details), then watercolored it using TH distress markers.  When finished coloring, I heat set it, then masked off the flower and inked and stamped the background bits with distress ink.

Here is a close-up of the canvas texture....
I will be making several of these.  They don't take that long, and I love that they look like little paintings.

I am adding my card today to:
