Today I have a card over on the Hero Arts blog which fits in with their current nature challenge. If you've not seen their challenges before, I highly recommend them. Submitting to Hero Arts challenges led me to create this blog way back in 2009 - it was the kindness of the Hero Arts staff and community that led me to pursue stamping and card making! I am very very very grateful to them!!
Anyway… as I was saying, I have created a card with some of their brand new products. The new Succulents set is gorgeous, but when I first saw it, I saw chrysanthemums. So I decided to create a cluster of chrysanthemums for a cheery Hello card. I used my new Gansai Tambi watercolours (anyone interested in a review / comparison of these??), added some vellum leaves (using THIS die), crochet thread and a sentiment from the new Fruit set.
The whole vellum panel is held to the card only by the stitching on the left. It's lovely and loose and can swing open too. I nearly added some adhesive behind the flowers, but when it came to it, I just really loved the looseness. :)
Have a great day! Bye for now.Supplies
