ABNH Challenge #1 & Lawnscaping Challenge #30 - Just A Note

I bought some new 2012 Hero Arts stamps since their release and have not inked them up. I was just in a crafting mood and did up a couple of cards.

I inked the stamp twice with versamark and white embossed. The background was colored using distress inks. I also brushed perfect pearls to the entire background to give it some subtle shimmer. I colored 2 of the main flowers with copics and fussy cut. Added clear copic spica to the petals.

Will also be submitting this card to Lawnscaping Challenge #30: Coloring.
Supplies Used:
Papers - PTI Stamper's Select White, Scarlet Jewel, Vellum
Inks - Ranger Distress Worn Lipstick, Fired Brick, Mustard Seed, Victorian Velvet, Dusty Concord, Broken China
Stamps - HA Large Flower Background, Essential Messages
Others - Zing Embossing Powder White, Ranger Perfect Pearls Blush, Copics, Copics Spica, Pop Dots


  1. I love the background coloring on this card with the embossed plus cut out flowers.

    Super nice! Will use your card as an inspiration to get going with my mojo again!

  2. i love your card! this background stamp is so very versatile! thanks for playing along with our first challenge!

  3. I'm starting to think this stamp is certainly not a "background" it makes a beautiful card all on it's own. :)

  4. This is just gorgeous! Great job. And I totally agree with Chari. Thanks so much for playing with us at Lawnscaping!

  5. Wow!!!!!!! Background stamp label is quite misleading! Look what you have done with this. Holy moly! Fantastic! Absolutely GORGEOUS! Thanks so much for joining us at Lawnscaping for our coloring challenge!

  6. so pretty. ditto to chari. love the vellum too.
