Hero Arts - Blog Hop!!


Hello everyone, Welcome to my stop on the Hero Arts + A Blog Named Hero Holiday blog hop. You should have arrived from the blog of talented Michelle Lupton.

For the holiday blog hop I have come up with a christmas card using the Hero Arts merry coordinating clear stamp and die.
IMG_9549

 I first colored the watercolour paper with red and green colours from gansai tambi watercolours. I tried to colour it in ombre effect and die cut the merry word. Stamped the tiny stars with Hero Arts soft granite ink and glued the merry dies. Then stamped the remaining part of the sentiment and used foam tape to stick them. To complete the card I used Pretty pink posh gold star sequins.

The winners will be randomly chosen from all of the blog hop comments, across all blogs, received by 11:59 pm PST on Sunday, November 22nd. Check the Hero Arts blog for the announcement of the winner on Tuesday, November 24th.
