Going Green in March!



Happy Saturday! I am over at A Blog Named Hero this morning sharing more of my newer Hero Arts favorites! Our new challenge started on March 15 and it's all about your favorites! All of the products used are listed at the end of my post!


To start with green is my favorite color, and Hero Arts Fresh Lawn is my favorite green among the entire selection. So I decided to use this gorgeous color with the new Every Which Way stencil. Once I was done with my blending on top of the stencil, I went over the entire panel with a light hand and the same ink. I die cut the panel using the new (my new staple dies) Rounded Rectangle dies.




I placed my panel in the Misti to stamp the hugs from the new Hand Drawn Every Day messages in Hero Arts Black die ink. I also die cut my Paper Layering Feather (love this die) and placed it over the centre of my panel and inked again. I wanted to add foam tape and have the sentiment be seamless on both. I added a little black marker over the sides of the feather where the sentiment was stamped to ensure that there were no white areas. One that was done, I took my stencil and placed it back on top of the panel and added embossing ink, I then used Hero Arts Sparkle Embossing powder to give a light glitter effect. It looks beautiful in real life you can see it slightly in the first picture.


Once that was done, I die cut a piece of black paper from the Midnight Mixed Layering papers to back the panel. I also embossed the sending sentiment also from the Hand Drawn Everyday Messages using Hero Arts White Detail embossing powder and added my feather and smaller sentiment on the base panel. I put my panel on top of a card base cut from Snow Layering Paper and added some clear sequins from the Champagne sequin mix and some Nuvo drops.



Thanks so much for taking the time!
