Hero Arts Challenge - October




Today starts the new Hero Arts Challenge:  Holiday Cards!  Super fun challenge to get started on your holiday cards.

Here's how I was inspired:

Hero Arts Supplies - cardstock:  hero arts blush mix/snow layering papers, hero arts kraft  stamps:  CG675 woodgrain prints by lia, C6015 beauty of the season  ink:  cup 'o joe, unicorn, hero hues black  other:  poinsettia cutting set by lia, sunshine mixed accents

I'm on an exposed corrugated cardboard kick.  I had a panel from a recent crafty order that I received.  I covered my base with it and layered up.  The Poinsettia Cutting Set by Lia is wonderful!  Love how this can be used on cards or packaging or banners or....

I worked with the Hero Arts Blush Mix Layering papers for the bloom....I simply scored each petal in half and used a small paintbrush handle to curl the edges.  The leaves have been cut in Snow layering paper and then I quickly painted them with green watercolor paint.  The sentiment flag is Kraft paper that has been stamped with Woodgrain  Bold Prints by Lia in Cup 'O Joe.  The sentiment is Beauty of the Season that has been stamped in Black Hero Hues

I simply topped off the poinsettia with a couple Sunshine Mixed Accents.
