A Card with Canvas

Canvas is a rather new medium for me this year. I started to use canvas on cards after using the 50% coupon at Michael's just early this year. I have been intrigued by canvas ever since.

The challenge over Moxie Fab World prompted me to re-visit canvas again. Instead of using paint like I did in previous times (see here), I used distress inks to stamp. The images weren't as sharp, but that's because of the canvas textures. However, I found a way to make the flower image stand out a little bit...
rejoice
by using Tim Holtz Detailer Waterbrush (see the links below).
Thanks so much for stopping by!

My mistake - that was supposed to be "canvas." I hit the space instead of the "v!"
