A good morning's work

Hi there,  Hope your weekend is going well.  This Sunday morning at 8.00am was the start of a 24hr Hero Arts Flickr Group 90 mins challenge.  As I was awake early with hubby leaving to go man his work's tent at the end of the "Round The Bays' fun run/walk, I got up.  Barb set the challenge "Create a card with an angle"  She shared some great inspiration.   I started creating and just kept on going!

In all three cards were made in less than 4 hrs
First one took one hour to make, photograph and post

Some new Hero Arts stamps arrived yesterday including this one called Antique Rose stem.  I white embossed it and then used Zig watercolour markers to colour.  Cut on the angle and added to a Hero Arts pink card base after using some bright pink card to mat.  The sentiment is from another new set, DC 182 Butterfly Pair

Next one took 55mins

This is a combination of older and new Hero Arts stamps.  The background is an older cling stamp, the sentiment from last year and the partial cut butterfly from the new DC 182 Butterfly Pair.  I used a Spellbinders die to cut the shape and my MISTI to help shape the sentiment. 

and finally I spend 20 mins on this last one

This one was inspired by Linda W's card in the Scramble.  I used a MFT stencil and some Squeezed Lemonade and Wild Honey distress inks and then stamped and embossed Hero Arts F6068 sentiment.  As my ink in the centre was still a little wet, the powder stuck.  Ended up look quite good.
