Hero Arts Sketches

One of the challenges over at Hero Arts for August is to use one of the three sketches

I decided to use the bottom right sketch to make my card.

Find Joy

I've had the Lattice stamped piece sitting on my desk for ages.  It was made by white embossing the lattice stamp and using distress inks and perfect pearls water to colour.  I used Jennifer's tip of adding a thin strip of card each side of the panel to give the look of layering.   The flower was white embossed and then coloured with Raspberry Fizz and Cut Grass distress ink and cut out.  I added some Stickles to the centre of the flower.  I stamped the sentiment in Salty Ocean distress ink and trimmed out.

I've added this card to a couple of challenges as well as Hero Arts
A Blog named Hero ~ Freestyle
Gael Creative Circle ~ using spray mist.

I've got some exciting news but can't say till Friday... so do pop back then.

Off to watch "Castle" ~ I really like this programme.   My little bit of escapism on a Wednesday night...  I did manage to get a card started for Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger but had to wait for some watercolour paper to dry so not yet finished.

Can't wait for the weekend... work really disrupts my creativity!

Wonderful card Dawn. Great take on the sketch. The black edging on the lattice strip really adds to it.

I look forward to hearing your news on Friday.

Very pretty. Isn't it funny that most of us have learned so much from Sweet Miss Jennifer?
