First challenge -- the current CAS-ual Fridays Challenge 65 to make a clean and simple square shaped card.
Second challenge -- the current Play Date Cafe Challenge #144 to use the colors Pink Carnation, Orange Sherbet and Lemonade.
Finally, I used all Hero Arts stamps and made a clean and simple card, which fits the Hero Arts Monthly Challenge for August.
To start, I cut down a standard white card to a 4" square. I inked up the older Hero Arts Shadow Stamp "Large Background" using Wild Honey (for yellow) and Spiced Marmalade (for orange) distress inks. Before stamping, I spritzed generously with water. After stamping the background I set it with my heat gun, then masked it with post-its. I then inked up a section of my Hero Arts Silhouette Grass with Punch chalk ink and stamped.
After removing the masks I was left with this...I wish the pink was a little "pinker," but it is what it is...
Finally, I stamped the sentiment from the Hero Arts All Occasion Messages set using Punch chalk ink and die cut it using a Spellbinders label die. (The yellow and orange together made me think warm, which is how I chose the sentiment!) While still in the die, I sponge inked the edges using Wild Honey distress ink again, then mounted it on the card with pop dots.
I can't believe that the closing ceremonies of the Summer Olympics are today...what am I going to watch on TV at night now?
Thanks for stopping by...have a great day!
