My first card uses an image from the Delicate Leaf Clusters set. I love all things leafy so I was excited to play with these stamps.
Designer Woodgrain with green chalk ink on some light green cardstock and stamped the leaf image ontop with Versamark and clear embossed it. I coloured over this with Pine Needles Distress Ink, sprayed it with Perfect Pearls, ran it through the Cuttlebug and pierced holes around the edge. I adhered this to some distressed text paper and added my embellishments.
For my next project I made a set of cards using the Large Fabric Design stamp.
Pan Pastels, a chalk-like pastel in a pan. This technique gives a beautiful two-tone look.
Winged Friends. I printed them out onto transparency sheets and added glitter glue to them for some subtle sparkle.
My last card is using an image from the Dots and Flowers set. How fun are all these dots!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you've enjoyed all the gorgeous projects made by my fellow Hostesses and that it inspires you to get inky with some new Hero Arts stamps.
