Celebrate Everyday!


I have been exploring Hero Arts Stamp sets now and I love them:) My main inspiration is my fellow Aussie, Joy Taylor. Her work with Hero Arts stamps is fabulous. Then my friend Cara sent me a stamped image card base. I loved the stamp and found it is a Hero Arts Stamp ( Fabric Design background stamp). I then started following Hero Arts Blog regularly. I have learned lots of  new techniques from the videos on their blog as well. In this month's contest, Hero Arts have three options to create a stamped project. 
  • Fabulous Flowers - Let your creativity bloom and include one or more flowers on your project!
  • Velveteen Stamping - Be sure to check out Shari Carroll’s March technique article and video to learn more about this fun new technique! Projects utilizing velveteen stamping can be of ANY theme.
  • Color Challenge - Create a project using the color palette below for inspiration. Corresponding Mid-tone Shadow Ink colors are noted, however the use of these inks is not a requirement. Color challenge projects can be of ANY theme.

I watched Shari's video and decided to give the technique a try. The result is awesome.
 Here is my take on the Velveteen Stamping technique.

This is fan-bloody-tastic! I also gave the velvet technique a go yesterday. Nowhere near as successful as yours but. Wih a bit of practice I hope to get something to post. Hehee. I am loving the mid tone shadow inks. They stain bad on clear stamps but nearly worth it in their effect. Red rubber is perfect though.

Love your colours and the layering. As inspiring as always!
