Hero Arts, Thinking of You and Operation Write Home
The midweek challenge at Stars and Stamps, Operation Write Home's card blog, is to make thinking of you cards. I had this card in my head - I have made a smiliar one using a leaf stamp and greens and browns.
The base is watercolor paper, a layer of cardstock, and another layer of watercolor paper. I stamped the Friends definition (Hero Arts) in grey Memento ink and then the flower (a very old old Hero Arts) flower in different shades of blue/green ink. The sentiment on each card is another Hero Arts stamp. I overstamped the friend definition over the sentiment. Everything has a little inking on it in the lightest shade of blue/green.
There is a new challenge blog - A Blog Named Hero - which focuses on Hero Arts Stamp - the challenge this week is to use your favorites - the background stamp "friend definition" is a favorite of mine. It can be used as a background on almost any card you make.
The challenge on the Pink Elephant is to make a Clean and Simple Card. I think they both qualify. I have six more of the second card ready to be assembled for Operation Write Home.
