Inspired by Hero Art's Artists.....

Over at A Blog named Hero the challenge is

Inspired by Hero Arts Artists!


I've been very inspired by a number of the Hero Arts Artist's during the Stretch Your stamps on-line class and not more so that Shari Carroll ~especially her beautiful card on Day 11

Here's my take on her card.

Stretch your stamps Day 11

I used a page from an old book about Roses, so old it's very yellowy.  I used Hero Arts Wet Cement ink and Flower Bird Garden stamp.  I added some white seam binding and a button and mounted onto white and pink and then onto a black card base.   

So am entering this into 
A Blog named Hero
as well as CAS-ual Fridays ~ Back in Black.

I'm heading to bed super early tonight as I have to be up at 4.15am to get to work by 5.00am to meet up with some colleagues to head out to the airport to fly to Wellington ( an hour's flight) to go to a workshop.  I am a Workplace Assessor ~ assess assignments that some of our staff are doing towards a qualification.  The WPA's are getting together tomorrow from all round the country.  But oh such an early start!   Plus won't get home till after 9.00pm ~ so forgive me if I don't get to comment over the next few days... think I will be a bit tired for a few days>

Take care

Great card Dawn. The technique and the Ink color looks wonderful. TFS

Hello Dawn
Hope you are not fogged in!
The card on first impression is dramatic; because of your Black, but on closer reflection, it has soft qualities as we see in the subtle stamping of the Bg and your Pink accent. It is a lovely and unique card.

Lin said...

I like the subtlety of the bird garden stamped on the text, and then your pop of that bright pink button!

Kara Lynne said...

I love this idea and it looks so elegant on the black background.

Maureen Morton said...
