Hero Arts – Mail it challenge

So the holidays are almost over – Jim goes back to work tomorrow! I’ll have to get back to my regular schedule and catch on all my websites surfing, my Stampin’Up business and I have many classes to prepare!

To get back into things, I visited the Hero Arts Website today to find out what the challenge was for this week. It is to make a card to mail to someone. So I have many overdue Thanks yous and Birthday cards to do, so here is one down, many more to go…. LOL

This is an old Hero Arts stamp, but still one of my favorite. I coloured the image with my Copics markers (I always coloured with watercolors before, but I can of like the Copics results).

I have put gems in the center of the flowers and glitter on the little branches between the flowers, but it might not show very much on the picture.

The picture was taken with flash so it is a little bright – sorry. The base cardstock is Gina K. Designs cs, very thick! I love it for card bases. It was embossed with a Sizzix folder (not plate, but their new folders). The only problem is that it is smaller and leaves a mark in the middle when you do the second pass. I put a ribbon on the mark to hide it. I also put a strip of patterned paper on the left to hide the little gap because the folder did not quite make it across my card. The pp was cut with the SU scallop border punch. The 2 lilac patterned papers are by Stampin’Up (almost amethyst I think). The bling in the flowers is Hero Arts, so are the mini pearls on the butterfly. The butterfly is a Hero Arts stamp (comes in a group of 4). The ink is Kaleidoscope ink (on the butterfly and greeting). The glitter is SU Dazzling Diamonds.

The “Hi There” is also an Hero Arts stamps (clear stamp).

The ribbon is from Michaels.

I cut around the flower pot as described by Sally on the Hero Arts Blog. Fun technique! Hi Sally! I met Sally at the Hero Arts Booth at CHA. Such a nice lady! Wish I had had more time to sit and chat!

I think that’s it for this card!

Thanks for your visit. Merci de visiter mon blog!
