Essentials by Ellen - Hero Arts: United We Flourish Better Together Hop!





I'm so excited to be a part of the Ellen Hutson LLC/Essentials by Ellen - United We Flourish Blog Hop with Hero Arts!  You should have arrived here from the Hero Arts blog!  If not, you'll want to start at the Ellen Hutson LLC - The CLASSroom blog because that is where the fun begins!

Check out the newest set, Better Together by Hero Arts:


I have two cards to share today so let's get started!  I wanted my card to appear that you're looking ingo their birdhouse:


The love birds have been colored with Zig Clean Color Markers.  The Hero Arts Mixed Blush Layering Paper has been stamped with the Hero Arts Heart Pattern Bold Prints.  The Earth panel has been stamped with the Starry Night Brushstroke Bold Prints in Wet Cement.

Here's my second design:


My background is smooshed Distress Oxides on watercolor paper.  The birds have been stamped and colored with Zig Clean Color markers.  I love the addition of the Infinity Nesting Cloudy clouds.

I can't wait to hop around and see how everyone was inspired!

Next up is the fabulous Carly Tee Minner!

  7. I love both cards Amy, especially the second one, probably due to the colours as I love that pop of red against the blue. Well done.

  10. Awww, sweet cards, Amy! At first I though you dry embossed the earth color card then read it was a background stamp-WOW! What dimension. And the oxide ink smooshing - I can't even get that to look decent lol! Oxide inks + me = :( Thank you for your inspiring cards and for tagging names at CHA or I wouldn't know who is who ♥
