Looking through all of my Hero Arts "small joys" stamps I have accumulated over the decades has brought back so many memories of my early card-making days and my excitement when, 45 years ago, Hero Arts happened!
I have always loved Hero Arts owls - they have such great personalities and are so dang cute - and I have MANY of them. I used some of them for this card, which is headed for the "Stay Crafty with Hero Challenge #8".
Because I wanted to highlight their individuality, I selected several of my owls and decided that the slim-line card design would best accommodate them. This is my first card of this style (although it has become very popular lately) and I've decided that it is not something I will probably make very often.
I had fun coloring these guys with Copics, hand-cutting them out (these pre-date matching dies!) and embellished them with some Goggly eyes and Glossy Accents. I selected a neutral cardstock to allow the fun birds to stand out. I used 2 Hero alphabet sets for the sentiment.
The stamps I used (many retired) are:
LP 167 Owl Trio
D5217 Big Hoot
D5562 Newspaper Owl
CL415 Sweet Owls
CL141 Fanciful Swirl Alphabet
CL260 Curly Alphabet
Thanks for joining me on my trip down memory lane.
