Hello Friend

I've spent lots of time at my craft desk this weekend. I made a couple of cards, but I was mainly sorting out new stamp sets into the A5 binders I use to store them. I have so many Hero Arts stamps now that I've had to buy another binder so that I can divide them between 'Clear' and 'Cling'.

Speaking of Hero Arts, I used some on the card in today's entry which is based on the inspiration photo from Scrapbook Boutique's latest challenge:

I took in the flower and the tiny silver balls and created the following card:

Hello Friend (1)

The daisy-like flowers are Tattered Florals by Tim Holtz. Stamped Chateau Grey Versacolor ink with Hero Arts Dotted Pattern on one daisy.

Hello Friend (2)

Stamped metal brad with Chateau Grey ink and dipped in Ultra Fine embossing powder (Hero Arts). Heat set it and covered with glossy accents for a bit of shine.

Hello Friend (3)

Assembled the flower on Canson Mi-Tientes textured cardstock (I believe this colour is 'Stone' but I can't be sure!) which I paper pierced the top and bottom of. Stamped the sentiment (All Occasion Messages by Hero Arts) with Versafine Onyx Black ink.

Thanks for taking a look! I'm off to enjoy the rest of my Sunday which looks to be a beautiful one!
