Stencil Flower

I have a birthday card to share using a much neglected Hero Arts stamp. I decided to stamp on watercolour paper and coloured the background with distress inks and the flower with Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolours. Thanks for dropping by!

A Postcard Greeting

I've got a birthday card to share that I made for my MIL. Every now and then, I like to make a vintage card, especially if the card is going to an older recipient. I pulled out a few Hero Arts favourites and put this together. The post card was stamped onto patterned paper and then the hydrangea image was embossed in white. I then sponges some colours on the flower and leaves and edges with distress inks. The sentiment was embossed with Liquid Platinum onto a coloured vellum strip. I didn't make this for any challenges in particular, so thank you for dropping by!

Materials used:
Stamps - Hero Arts
Paper - Kraft coloured vellum, Kaisercraft Sweet Nothings
Inks - Ranger Archival Jet Black, Versamark, Hero Arts white EP, Ranger Liquid Platinum EP, Distress inks

A sketch challenge

I would like to share a masculine card I made on the weekend using some previously stamped and fussy cut gold fish. I used the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch for the design of the card. Something new I used is the Hero Arts Ombre ink which I used for the background seaweed, so I'm also adding this card to A Blog Named Hero's New to Me challenge. I think I've got my mojo back now as I did not want to do any cards after making over 70 Christmas cards last month!! Thanks for dropping by!

Materials used:
Stampset - Hero Arts and Lawn Fawn
Inks - Hero arts Ombre and midtone inks

Something New to me

I needed some masculine birthday cards this week. I went hunting through my box of stamps and Lo and Behold, I found a stampset which I got ages ago which is still sealed. Out it came for the new challenge on the A Blog Named Hero Blog. The main image took a few layers of ink before I got it evenly stamped. I used the trusty MISTI of course! Thanks for dropping by!!

Materials used:
Stamp - Hero Arts CL737
Ink - Ranger
