>HeroArts Challenge – Layering Technique


Good morning all-

It’s Thursday and that only means  – 1 more day til the start of the weekend..WooHoo!!!  I am so tired today…keep reading and you’ll know why.

I was up last night,(started at around 11pm) at my crafting desk trying to create this card “in my head” that looked awesome….but of course, it just was not coming together. I tried to follow the sketch I drew, but it was just not happening. I had the stamp and the paper and the embellishments…but when I started inking up my stamp, I just wasn’t feelin’ it.  Anyway…it was about 1am and I went back to my desk and I picked up this stamp – HeroArts Little Feathers – and all of a sudden I came up with today’s card in 15mins – NOW GO FIGURE…..(Kimba hits her head – DUH!) …and this was not the original card I was trying to make….

Here’s what I did. I distressed lightly the white cardstock firs, layering Orange Marmalade and then layering Vintage Photo around the edges. Next, I stamped the SILHOUETTE FERN using Peeled Paint Distress Ink in a random pattern. Lastly, I stamped LITTLE FEATHERS CG202 using VersaMark ink and then heat embossed it using OPAQUE powder – the color is PERIDOT….don’t you just love the way it came out??? The details of the feathers are so pretty (if I do say so myself..LOL!)

Lastly, I added pop dots, and stamped a simple sentiment. CAS card….thanks for stopping by….and have a great Thursday!
