Inspired By Hero Artist At A Blog Named Hero

It's the 15th of the month so that means a new challenge is up at A Blog Named Hero.  The theme for this challenge is to pick a Hero Arts artist and create a project inspired by them.

I picked Shari Carroll because she has such a great way of layering stamping, colours, papers and patterns. I know Shari left Hero Arts a few weeks ago but she was fundamental in helping to shape Hero Arts for the past 24 years so I couldn't help but pick one of her cards.

I was inspired by this card from Shari, starting with the watercolour background and her walk and wiggle watercolour stamping. You can check out a video here from Shari on how to do the walk and wiggle technique.

Shari likes to use a lot more earthy tones in her cards and I'm all for bright and bold colours (with a touch of shimmer from a Wink of Stella Marker).

Now it's your turn to create something inspired from a Hero Arts artist.  Make sure to specify in your post which artist and project you were inspired by and submit your creations over at A Blog Named Hero.

One lucky crafter will win a $25 gift voucher from Simon Says Stamp to purchase some goodies.

I can't wait to see your projects!
