Copics on Canvas


I have been working like mad on samples for CHA for Hero Arts, Tim Holtz and Ranger. Thought I would take a break and share a sample I made for a previous CHA.

I don't think I have shared this one and it uses one of my favorite combos: Copics and canvas.

Yep... it works very well! I stamped the Hero Arts flower with Archival Black Ink on Sticky Back Canvas. I then colored away with my Copics. They do bleed a bit on the canvas, so I just was careful to not color right up to the lines but rather in a bit....

This Sticky Back Canvas is actually the ATC-sized canvas. Perfect for the front of a card. Love.

It is bright, huh? Hopefully it will give cheer to the person I am sending it to.

And that background stamp on the green is one of my fave Tim Holtz ones. So fun...


Oh! And guess what!? It looks like Copics have a great price over at Simon Says Stamps. Only $4.99 a piece with free shipping over $70. Great deal. If you want info on my favorite Copics, click HERE.

See you soon!

Love love!

Beautiful! I love C Hellmuth's stickyback canvas. Do you paint a sealer on your canvas when it's done??? I'm thinkin of trying some beeswax too.


Gorgeous! I love how bright it is!

gorgeous effect on the canvas, this is a beauty!


Oh, Jennifer! This is so gorgeous! Love the bright red!

I can sum this up with one word WOW

I'm getting the Copic bug. My LSS is having a beginners class soon that I've REALLY been thinking about signing up for. Your card may have just pushed me over the edge!

I've yet to try either the canvas or the copics...but you make it look soooo tempting! :) Very nice...

Wow! Absolutely STUNNING!!!!!

Have to get my hands on some of this canvas, beautiful!

How cool - I have both so I am going to give this a try! Thanks so much for the great idea! XX Maureen

wow, beautiful! love the colors. =)

I've been wondering how that would work... looks like I'll have to try it out this week! Thanks for the inspiration :)

Beautiful :o)

Love your beautiful get well card! Initally I thought it was a Valentine's card.

stunning card, Jennifer! gorgeous coloring on the flower. wow!

Beautiful Jen, you never cease to amaze me with your talent and ideas, Hugs!

Gorgeous as usual. You are amazing. Love all of your work. I don't think I have ever seen something you have created and not liked. Amazing.

Beautiful card.

That stamp of Tim's is one of my go to stamps. Sticky back canvas - the best thing since sliced bread. The idea that I can use Copics on it....Awesome, never thought to try that!

Wow! Beautiful the canvas!

wow, it's really really nice ! love it


Gorgeous Jennifer! I thought that canvas would bleed too much. But I was wrong... Imagine that! lol Thanks for sharing. I've got a canvas mini taking up space in my stash. But I was afraid to try coloring on it. The pages are double layers, so I could put something between the layers to soak up the excess. Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful card Jennifer!! Guess what? I got myself a pair of your "favorite scissors", now it's my favorite too. Thanks for sharing!

Wow just love that card! Love the canvas look. I am sure whomever recieves this card will be super excited!

Beautiful! Love it!

This is gorgeous!

Oooh, I love the look of this card!

Beautiful colors, how vivid!! Where can you get the canvas?


i linked it on the bottom of my post.

Beautiful! I need to try copics on this. I recently bought this natural sticky canvas and tried doing resist with clear embossing powder but it doesn't work! Wonder if this is different from the white sticky canvas...

Beautiful card!

what fun!

How gorgeous!

I love the Tall Flower stamp and it looks great on the canvas!

OHHHHH This is FABULOUS! Now I think I will open my pack of Sticky Back Canvas ATCs I just had to have :)

This is really beautiful! Love the play on textures!

Such a pretty card.

Hello Jennifer. I hope my husband is okay with a pizza delivery for supper...I just received the two Hero Arts DVDs of "At Home Classes" that you did. It's about 3:00 in the afternoon and I'm going to sit down with my computer and your classes and be done doing much else! I know they are going to be as great as all your videos are and I'm really excited to have them. So, enough "chatting"...I"m off to watch! Thank you for doing them.

Just beautiful!!!

GORGEOUS!!!! Love this Very Pretty!!!

You never cease to inspire. My copics have been collecting dust so this tip comes at the perfect time.

That is so beautiful. I still haven't tried sticky back canvas - need to do that. Not sure how I missed the post about your favorite copics either - excellent post!

I love the stamping and colouring on canvas! Beautiful colours on the flowers and I love your subtle bg! Gorgeous card, Jennifer!

I have an Archival Ink pad and I use it for all my stamping... I LOVE it! However, I just bought my first Copic markers and I see everyone say you should use memento, but I have heard no mention of whether you can use the Archival Ink pad with the Copics. I see that's what you used here. Is the Archival Ink ok to use with copics on the Neenah paper (which I bought- thanks for the link!) or will it bleed the ink and also ruin my Copic nibs? Thanks!
