I just love everything in the new 2012 Hero Arts Catalog...my wishlist is a mile long! I love anything text and collage-y so I used that theme to make some Thank You cards. Check out the inlinkz links at the end of this post for all the products I used.
This card uses some Sticky back canvas and an old product in my stash called Shimmering Pearls. They work like Twinkling H2Os. Hero Arts stamps used: Newspaper Background and Greeting Cling set.
Next I tilted the butterfly collage stamp vertically and got all inky:
I used Distress inks to watercolor the butterfly, add splatters and distress the edges of the panel. The background is the Newspaper Eiffel Tower...I love this stamp! I left the background as is so the distressed panel would take center stage.
This time I stamped the Butterfly Greeting image on a patterned paper die cut label:
I stamped the Newspaper Background with Stormy Sky Distress ink on white cs then over-stamped the butterfly portion of the stamp with brown ink. I cut out just the wings and paper-pieced them to the panel. To finish the panel I added some more inky splatters and white dots with a gel pen. I also outlined the label with the white pen. The background is an old favorite from Hero Arts, Old Letter Writing.
The final card features the Newspaper Background and a great frame and sentiment clear set called Sending You Love:I stamped the Newspaper Background once near the top of the panel using Stormy Sky Distress ink and again on the bottom with Art Print Brown ink. The sentiment frame was stamped with Stormy Sky, cut out and hole punched. The flourishes are from the Hero Arts/Sizzix Floral Stamp and Die set. A few gems and it's done.
