I've loved Hero Arts since I began stamping. My first card is for the bling challenge at ABNH.
The gold embossed panel has been on my table since I tried smooshing it with Distress Inks weeks ago. The beautiful floral design didn't show up, so figured I had nothing to loose & tried sponging with several shades of red. That worked! Then I spritzed with gold Perfect Pearls & added gold Stickles. I really didn't want to cover it up. Finally decided just to add the gold frame & sentiment. The HA stamps are Flower Medley Background & Live Life. I stamped the sentiment 5 times in Delicata Golden Glitz--love using the Mini MISTI! I'm also entering CTS, CCCB & SSS Wednesday.
Next is my entry for the stenciling challenge at a2z. Finally tried the technique of slightly shifting the stencil & inking again--really fun!
I used HA Wet Cement ink--first using a heavy hand & then keeping it lighter. The HA stencil is called Irregular Checkerboard Background. This is my first time to use the bunny die from HA Millie Cut-Outs by Lia--a prize I won a couple years ago. I attached the bright, pink felt to cardstock before die cutting. The eyes & nose are gems & I drew the mouth with a Sharpie. The sentiment is from W&W Big, Bold, Seasons & a scattering of Nuvo glitter drops adds just a bit of sparkle. I'm also entering ABNH & SSS Wednesday. We've got company coming for a few days, but I'll catch up with you as soon as I can.
