Just For You


I'm sharing a card I made for fun and A Blog Called Hero Put A Flower On It Challenge. The challenge is pretty self-explanatory, use a flower(s) on your card!

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Hero Arts

I started with a black card base and used the Hero Arts Petals Pair stencil and Faber-Castell Texture Paste to create the background. I set it aside to dry.

Next, I stamped Hero Arts Antique Rose on watercolor cardstock and white heat embossed it. Then I used PTI reinkers like liquid watercolors to color the rose. I used Hibiscus Burst, Autumn Rose, and Scarlet Jewel.

I used Spring Moss and Simply Chartreuse to paint some simple leaves, then I fussy cut them out. From the Just For You by Lia stamp set I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment in white. I cut it out into a simple rectangle.

When the background was dry I adhered the leaves and flower with liquid adhesive. Last I added the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!!
