Hand Stamped With Love

Hero Arts challenge this month is about trying something new.  I have rediscovered canvas paper recently, and have been using watercolor, inks, and markers on it.  This card uses inks, some marker, and even a bit of colored pencil to help with the definition of the flowers.....
I stamped Hero Arts flower H3257 (an oldie but goodie) onto canvas paper.  I used Tim Holtz distress inks to ink it up, and also a few Hero Arts leaves and the Hero Arts script H2141.  I used Distress markers to help fill in the flowers, and then some colored pencil to add some darker colors here and there.  The with love is a Spellbinders die.
Here is a close-up, which shows the amazing texture of his paper.  I used Canvasette Paper Canvas, which I got at Michaels...ages ago.  I decided this was the week to try some new techniques with some older products.
This card is for the A Blog Named Hero challenge - New to me challenge theme.
I am also adding it to the Mod Squad Challenge - Show your love
and the Fusion Card Challenge - Inspiration picture
