hero arts stamps. . . .

again!  I am having fun playing with my new stamps from Hero Arts.  Here is a card I made for several challenges:


I used distress inks to ink the flower stamp and attempted to give it a bi-color look.  The sentiment was stamped in Versafine onyx black ink (my favorite black ink).  I found the vintage sequins in my stash after I had stamped the flower and the sequins actually look bi-color, too.  Love when that happens.  A strip of washi tape along the side emphasizes the black of the design.

Here are the challenges for which I made this card:

Less is More  - anything goes (happy birthday, Chrissie!)
Addicted to Stamps & More - anything goes
SSS Wednesday challenge - anything goes


Have a great day!

I'm sorry this comment is so late, but I was on holiday in Spain last week and wifi was a little limited and slow!
This is super... what a great inky effect!
Thanks so much
