BIG smile

Hero Arts challenge last week was about learning. I have learned so much from the Hero Arts blog and all the talented ladies on the Hero Arts Flickr group. I decided to use Card Patterns new sketch and my new Hero Arts stamps for both challenges!





So here's my card.......I decided to let go of some of my yummy Basic Grey pattern paper!!! I have such a hard time letting go of Pattern Paper!! lol


Some of the things I've learned are masking, using gel pens on your stamped images to accent them more (like I did on the dots and wings of the owl....I also out lined the clouds with Spica's Clear glitter pen)



Also stamping on top of another stamped image (like I did with the loopy boarder stamp on my clouds block stamp)....and stamping on pattern paper (like I did with the hearts on PTI's pattern paper) such a simple thing yet I never thought of it on my own!!!
(click on the photo for a closer look)


Anyways, that's it for now.....hope you all have a great day!
materials - Hero Arts stamps (LP131, S5215, CL168), cardstock, pattern paper (Basic Grey, Papertrey Ink), ribbon, Making Memories heart shape tag, gel pens, ink (ColorBox chalk inks, My Mind's Eye color wheel), pop dots


Pin It!

What a beautiful card! I also just love this card pattern and need to design a card using it! I really like all the patterns and colors you have used.

I'm a paper hoarder, too, esp because I can't just go to a LSS to pick up more. Your card is so fun and cheery.

Jane, this is SUCH a fun card! {I admire your bravery: letting go of this fine paper *GASP!*} It sure when to a terrific cause! Hee Hee FABULOUS use of the C/P sketch AND you dumped some "old tackle" (the heart tag) and I think you should get double bonus points for that! Yipee!
