I am delighted to be joining A Blog Named Hero design team. I am so honoured and thankful to be given the opportunity to work with A Blog Named Hero team and Hero Arts products.
My name is Gayatri Murali. I live with my fabulous husband, two gorgeous teen children and an adorable dog in Perth, Australia. I am a stay at home mother at the moment although I am a therapist by profession. Besides making cards, my interest include interior designing, gardening, cooking and photography. I have been cardmaking for more than seven years and absolutely enjoy the process of cardmaking. I have blog – Handmade by G3. I regularly update my blog. You can also find me on social media for which I have the links to it my blog. My gallery of cards are at Pinterest and Flickr the link for them is also on my blog. Cardmaking has not just my passionate hobby and been therapeutic, I have also made so many friends and it has been a great learning process.
I have always loved Hero Arts products and being on A blog Named Hero design team gives me the opportunity to showcase my love for Hero Arts products. For the introduction, I have this card using celebration as the theme.
This is a classic colour combination I LOVE and use a lot. But I also add colours. Most of my cards are bright, bold and trendy. There will a technique or two used as well. This one does not have a technique as I wanted the colour combination and the bold gold palm leaves to be highlight of the card.
I have used the Palm Dies from Hero Arts and diecut couple of them using gold card stock. Trimmed one leaf from the second diecut and layered on the first die cut. The background is stamped using Soft Granite Hero Arts Shadow Ink using Hero Arts Line Dots background cling stamp. The sentiment is white heat embossed on black cardstock. The sentiment is from Hero Arts stamp set called Cuckoo. I have used Pretty Pink Posh’s Onyx 6mm and 4mm sequins to bring in more black and tie in the colours on the card. Here is a closeup!
