Hello there! It’s me, Cha! Today I’m at the blog A Blog Named Hero showing you my card for this challenge that is going to end in a few days. I encourage you to post your cards with a nature theme in order to win some prizes! Good luck!
For this card, I used an acrylic block in order to stamp images from the Tropical Flowers stamp set on the background here and there. I stamped the images with Hero Arts Intense Black Ink and used white cardstock. Then, I masked the center of the card using one of the dies from the Rectangle Infinity Dies set.
For coloring the piece, I used Copics. I colored the whole piece except for the area just in the center of the card with the masking piece.
I removed the masking piece and traced the lines for the rectangle in the center of the card, using a black pen and a ruler so that I could trace straight lines. I traced these lines several times to make them a little bit wider.
I used one of the sentiment from the same stamp set (Tropical Flowers stamp set). As I wanted to heat embossed the sentiment, I used the mini MISTI to stamp the phrase twice even three times. I used black cardstock. I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink after using an anti-static powder tool. Then, I added some White Embossing Powder and heat it with my heat tool*. I heat embossed the sentiment several times. I cut the sentiment in one strip, and also, I cut the word “sweetest” separately.
To embellish this card, I added some shimmer to the flowers in the center. Also, I added some iridescent sequins to the background and two little hearts around the sentiment. What’s more, I added dots in the center of the flowers with a Gold Gel Pen and the Mustard English NUVO Drops.
I hope you like this card and… don’t forget to participate in this challenge! We are waiting for your cards! Thank you so much!
