Welcome to the final day of the Hero Arts Hostess Blog Hop. I'm so happy you could join in all the fun inspiration provided by this awesome group of stampers.
You should be arriving from Vera's blog, but if you've just joined us you can start at the beginning of the hop here. Remember to comment on any of the blogs during this weeks hop for a chance to win some fabulous goodies from the new 2014 Hero Arts collection.
My first card features the Petals of Beauty stamp, it's such a perfect name for this image.
I coloured right on the stamp using Memento Markers and stamped onto glossy paper. The image was cut into three pieces and layered onto charcoal paper with some foam adhesive. This was layered onto pool paper that was clear embossed with the Five Lines Background. For the sentiment, I stamped it on vellum and wrapped it around the corner of the card stock.
Another card with Petals of Beauty.
This time I dug out my Perfect Pearls to use on the card. The flower and sentiment were inked with Versamark and then coloured with Perfect Pearls. I wish you could see just how pretty the shimmer is on the black cardstock. The card base was stamped with the Five Lines Border, you can see the pattern peeking through on the scallops.
My next card is all about fun.
I masked off a centre portion of the card stock and randomly stamped two of the circle images from Dauber Bunch. I inked up sponge daubers and used them to colour in the circles. Because of the free-form shape of the circles, it's okay to colour outside of the lines! I also used the Wink of Stella pen in clear to go over all the circles for some added sparkle.
I inked up the sentiment in black and stamped it in the centre of the masked off area and stamped it two more times but first stamped it off on scrap paper so I would get a lighter impression. This way the complete sentiment stands out a little more in the darker ink.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today and for joining us all week long. Your next stop is Cheiron's blog and it's the last one of the hop.
Have a great day!
