Hello, friends! Just stopping by to share a card I made for the current Hero Arts January 2013 Contest to try something new. I was lucky enough to receive a few new Hero Arts stamps for Christmas and have just found the time to start playing with them.
While I have had the Etched Flowers cling stamp for a while now, I just received the Hero Arts/Basic Grey Lucille Delicate Flower cling background. Can I just say...oh my goodness, this is so pretty!!! It has such a sweet, country, cottage feel to it...and I knew I had to have it when I saw Kelly Rasmussen's card using it HERE.
Hero Arts Stamps: Lucille Delicate Flower (CG476), Etched Flowers (CG430), Sending Smiles Message (CL490)
Inks: Soft Pool shadow ink, Mid-Tone Pool shadow ink, black dye ink
Other: various patterned paper scraps, Fiskars border punch, pearls, lace, pale yellow watercolors and marker, corner rounder
I'm thinking if I were to make this again, I would use a Soft Pool shadow ink instead of Mid-Tone Pool ink, it might need to be a bit softer in the background. Live and learn...it is new to me, after all!
Thanks for stopping by...be sure to check out the fun blog hop going on this coming week at the Hero Arts Blog if you get a chance! Lots of NEW stamps and ideas will be shared by the Hero Hostesses all week!
Take good care,
