Sometimes a simple card just makes the best impact ...
- the red flower (which is a Hero Arts silhouette stamp from the Sweet Threads Thank You stamp set) was first stamped on white card
- then a mask of the flower was stamped and cut, and with mask in place, I then proceeded to stamp the background (using Hero Arts - Newspaper Background stamp) in sepia ink
- final touches include affixing the 'hello' die-cut from Paper Smooches - Quote Tag (which has been embossed in copper powder) and some rhinestones on the flower centre and across the card
- with the edges of the white card distressed and coloured with distress ink, it was all ready to go onto the brown card base
and it was great to know that the card was noticed in the Hero Arts Flickr group, and was tweeted by myheroarts .... wheeeeee!
