This has got to be one of my most favorite cards EVA!!! Last week, I had design team deadlines looming over me and was running on no mojo. I was becoming desperate when I decided to stamp the image on a piece of paper and call it good!! LOL No....Seriously!! I created this simple card and that's when I remembered some canvas I had and thought I should at least stamp the image on that. (Thinking... it wouldn't be as lame as the paper idea, LOL!!) I liked the look and got curious about what it would look like using Copics....and the rest is history!! :)
Being the first time I tried coloring on canvas, I thought I'd share with you a little of what I learned.
I was surprised that it was almost like coloring on paper. The ink does blend into each other better, I didn't need to use darker colors in order to achieve the rich shading. I was careful to not oversaturate the canvas with my Copics to avoid bleeding out of the lines. I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black and that transferred to the canvas fainter than I liked; so AFTER I had colored the image I then used my black .003 Copic Multi-liner to darkened the lines.

Another simple layout but sometimes, less is MORE!! :) I used Schoolhouse papers from October Afternoon and Echo Park's Dots & Stripes (Soda Fountain). The notebook edge border is from EK Success. The sentiment was computer generated using Rough Typewriter font and printed on a fishtail banner die.
