Hero Arts Crafty Challenge

Hi, Bloggin' Buddies!

As I have mentioned here before, Hero Arts was the first real stamping company that happened during my early card-making days. We grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area together! I was with them at the start and I'll be with them as long as I am able to make cards.

Because small businesses like this have been struggling, I've decided to use some of my time-proven old favorite hero Arts stamps for this Crafty Challenge #9 to show them my loyalty. The challenge is a sketch challenge using this sample:
I have taken some liberties with the sketch, which is totally is intended to get us thinking outside our box.

My card uses an old favorite from 2009 called "Silhouette Flower". I stamped it with Distress Oxide Inks, brushed the flowers with a Versafine pen and added some clear embossing powder. Then I cut the stamped down in size with a stitched die.

I added some distressing and a sentiment from a classic 2011 set.

This sure is nothing like my normal style. In fact, I almost never use patterned paper anymore, but this is a lovely piece by Blue Fern Studios. It looks like many of the Distress oxide backgrounds I routinely make. And using it sure is lots less messy!

Silhouette Flower
