Hero Arts just flitting by

** 8/20/17 Winner at Dragonfly Journeys! **

Hi everyone! Happy Hump Day! I’m posting today on the a2z Scrapbooking blog and I’m excited to share a DT inspiration project using the Hero Arts Color Layering Butterflies stamp set along with the Neon Ink Cubes (Blue, Green, Orange, Pink) and Intense Black ink. In keeping with our “Bright and Beautiful” challenge this month, I created a clean and simple note card. OMG, talk about some inky fun! These stamps and inks are amazing!


I stamped the butterfly and sentiment on a die cut and layered it on white fun foam. I did manage to use all four of the Neon inks in the set on this card and got a bonus fifth color of purple on the butterfly by stamping blue over the pink. How cool is that?! Using the direct-to-paper technique, I inked three strips of cardstock in blue, green and orange, and trimmed them in varying widths to adhere diagonally across the bottom half of the card base. I finished the front with some drops of Morning New Crystal Drops which dries clear and gives some awesome texture. I left the inside blank since this is a note card.


I’d love to enter this note card into the following challenges:

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
