Just Saying Hello | A Blog Named Hero April Challenge


Hi there, I hope you had a lovely weekend!

Today marks the beginning of another challenge over on the A Blog Named Hero blog.  This month’s theme is “Clean and Simple” and as you can see, I went super clean and super simple 🙂

54522010_10156057749191156_3697575342702067712_nI started by stamping an image from the Hero Arts Beautiful Day Agapanthus stamp set*  onto an A2-sized piece of Neenah Solar White 80# Classic Crest cardstock.  I used a Hero Arts Ombre Soft Granite to Black ink pad so that the top of the image is a bit lighter than the bottom.

Then I used Copics (BV31, BV04, BV13, and BV08) to color the blooms.  I also used an orange Sakura Glaze pen to add a bit of color and dimension to the anthers of the blooms.

For the sentiment, I used a stamp from the All Occasion Messages stamp set.  I heat embossed it with Hero Arts white embossing powder onto a strip of heavyweight black cardstock and then trimmed one end at an angle.

To assemble the card, I adhered the sentiment strip to the card front with foam tape and then I adhered the card front to an A2-sized card base.
