A card with a view - A Blog named Hero challenge
So here goes ... card #1:
I took the Hero Arts Studio Calico lattice background stamp
and stamped it with Jenni Bowlin speckled egg ink. I then die cut the clouds with my new Wplus9 dies (Wplus9 Hearts and Clouds dies).
Studio Calico grid pattern background stamp with Colorbox silver ink and inked up a HA Friends sentiment with Jenni Bowlin spice tin ink. Finally, I mounted the front piece with foam dots for some dimension onto an Enchanted Evening card base. All done!
Jenni Bowlin to add a bit more definition.
Ok, card number two was really hard to capture on film Not only are my photog skills horrible, the lighting is BAD in my place ... especially at night! Enough excuses, let's see the card, right?
Studio Calico Alpha Pattern cling stamp with Fresh Tuscan Olive ink. I then stamped the butterfly (PTI) in Fresh Lilac ink.
Jenni Bowlin spice tin. I filled in the space with a Versamark marker to define the area.
And here is my final card for this challenge:
Wplus9 Hearts and Clouds dies and added a layer of Hawaiian shores cardstock that I had stamped with Hero Arts Studio Calico lattice background stamp in Jenni Bowlin speckled egg ink. I added it behind with some Tombo Mono Multi glue (this stuff rocks!). I stamped the xoxo from the Hero Arts Everyday Messages set using some Jenni Bowlin spice tin ink. Some foam dots to attach it to my white card base and there you have it!
