Hero Arts Blog Hop!!
These are some cards that I did this week. The top two cards use the Hero Arts Antique Letter Writing stamp. The first card, I inked the stamp in Versamark, then clear embossed it. I then sponged Worn Lipstick, Dried Marigold and Broken China distress inks all over it. I mounted the piece onto pale pink cardstock.
The second card is using the same stamp (Antique Letter Writing) that I stamped on white cardstock in Lovely Lilac ink (SU). I then took an X-acto knife and cut around the wings of the biggest butterfly. To add a little more to the card, on the two butterflies, I did the purple parts of their wings in purple Stickles.
The third card is using a left over piece of cardstock that had some embossing powder on it... I had done the faux batik technique( I think that's the correct name for it), and I used the piece that covered the original embossed piece. I went and added Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick and Victorian Velvet distress inks to it., rounded the corners, and mounted it to a piece of pink cardstock. I took the scrap of the pink cardstock, and stamped a Hero Arts butterfly (Antique Engravings) in Victorian Velvet and cut it out, and foam mounted it to the card. I stamped 3 tulips (Antique Engravings flowers) over the piece. I then stamped the sentiment (Essential Messages) on another piece of scrap pink cardstock in Victorian Velvet and attached it to the side of the card. The background is the Antique Brocade stamp.
