A PlayDate with Hero Arts


Hello everyone! As I told you in the last post that it’s my first time playing for the Hero Arts monthly challenge, I wasn’t satisfied with my last card as it used only one sentiment stamp. I have another card for you today based on the colour story at PDCC, it features my only HA stamp apart from the sentiment stamps that I have.

00color story 136[1]   sketch170[1]

170620121294 Oh my god, never fussy cut this stamp like I have! LOL I cut all the way between the mini swirls! Oh, by the way I used my ever loyal Crayola markers to stamp these beauties! For the sentiment I used Chipped Sapphire and then outlined parts of “You” with a crayola to give it a 2D look.


To make things a little more interesting I cut strips of blue CS, distressed the edges and glued them diagonally on a base cardstock. I added faux stitching to every alternate strip.

If you can see a bit of gloss on the butterfly… I used clear varnish (clear nail polish) on it, twice.


The frame is hand cut, I added a bit of faux stitching here as well. Here is another view:


Thank you friends for all the love you have sent my way in form of comments and emails; it means so much that you think my work is worthy of your praise. Thank you!

Leave a comment and I will drop by your place soon!


Challenges: PDCC, Paper Playtime, CPS, Cutie Pie, Bearly Mine
