Hi There - Hero Arts June Challenge

Hi friends,

This morning, I watched the video from Jennifer McGuire about embossing, which you can also find in here. Love it and tempted to try it myself. Then when I came to Hero Arts blog, I saw the card made by Nancy about using the clothespin. I do have the stamp used on that card. So, after lunch, I made this card. Ohlala..., something went wrong. The Top Boss tinted embossing pad was flattened. How long didn't I use this pad? That long?? Oh no.. So, I opened the new one which is not tinted. The result was not good enough to share here..LOL. I tried thrice (though I don't have a Pearl to make it pearlized). I used Distress ink to color the green one. Here is the result.


CG 181 - Bird In Circle Stamp, CL Hi There, Cling Dot, Silhouette Grass

I stamped again twice the flowers and the birds, colored them with watercolor pencils and brushed them with little water. The first layer was quite flattened to the white image. The second layer was attached using foam tape. The bg was made using 2 stamps, dots and grass at the bottom. Then I added some gems and a pearl and tied the dotted ribbon.

This is the closer look on the details on the card.

Love this stamp. I am thinking of using this stamp again later.

Thanks for looking, my friends.
Hugs,
