Hello friends! I'm playing along with the current challenge at A Blog Named Hero to make a card inspired by the work of one of the fabulous Hero Arts artists.
Since I made a birthday card using mainly stamped images (and only a small strip of dotted swiss paper), I am also entering it into the Stamp It! Cards Birthday Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.
My card was inspired by two specific cards made by Shari Carroll. First is THIS awesome big-eyed fella, and next is THIS sweet bird. Check them out here:
Isn't the patchwork effect on the owl cool? And I love the newspaper print background behind the bird. So, for my card I combined the owl and the text background!
I stamped the owl in black on white card stock, drew the lines with a black Sharpie, then colored with colored pencils. I added black rhinestones on the eyes, then cut it out and popped it up on the card. On the card itself I masked the bottom, stamped the Friend Definition cling in Wet Cement ink, and stamped an older Hero Arts sentiment in Poppy chalk ink.
I had a really nice time scrolling through the IDEAS section of the Hero Arts website...I was reminded of how many inspiring cards there are to recharge you when the mojo is lacking! Be sure to check it out if you need a jump start for this challenge. THIS LINK will take you directly there!
Thanks for stopping by...have a great day!
