Celebrate Card using an old Hero Art Stamp

I think we all have those times, that you look at a card when its completed and think 'love it'.
Well this card is one of those. I love this Hero Art Stamp, even though I have had it for quite a few years now I still get it out often. I needed up removing the wood so I could store with my 'flower' stamps and not forget it.

I stamped onto Linen Cardstock, as I love the look but wasn't sure it would cope
with the Copics, but as you can see. It coped perfectly. Love it and now I need to stamp
a dozen more and do a colour series. Its stunning with the copics against this
type of card stock. I coloured the leaves grey so the blue would stand out more.

I then realised I had stamped off centre so had to trim the piece down to balance it out
so it was no longer a one layer, too narrow for my likes. I added to a card base
after I had added this amazing tiled look washi tape each side. Makes me think pool,
summer days, finished off with the silver mirror card 'Celebrate' diecut and a few
little sparkly blue enamel dots.

Blue copics used if you are interested B000 B00 B12 and B05 in that order. Greys are
N1 N2 N3 which in my mind look the same as C1 C3 C5. I only just purchased them and wish I had bought more colours instead as I cant see the difference. (not just on the wee leaves I have also been colouring some animals and can't see that I needed them).

Anyway, thats it for today, thank you so much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.

  19. Sorry I haven't been over for a while. Finally getting some time to catch up and spotted this beauty. It really is stunning and I love those vibrant blues. I have so few blues, I should write down the numbers! I'm still torn over the greys really, as lots of people have told me they use them all - maybe they feel they have to because they bought them all 😂 I shall sit on it for a while longer :) xx

  20. That was a great and happy "accident," Aileen, because that pool-tile Washi is stunning on either side of your sweet blue flowers!! Hugs, Darnell
