Hero Arts Gratitude

I received a complimentary copy of the Dec/Jan/Feb 2008 issue of Take Ten Christmas Eve! This card is in there somewhere - it was a design challenge and I used all Hero Arts stamps. Hero Arts has amazing collage stamp images. For this card, I used a Key Lime Memory Box card base that has a white inside. directions: stamped collage image with Archival Black ink (Ranger) onto Archangel (Basic Grey) patterned paper and again onto Key Lime card front. Stamped Play Print to card front with Archival Black ink. Trimmed stamped Archangel paper into diamonds & matted onto black cardstock. Applied Tattered Rose distress ink using DTP (direct to paper technique) onto a strip of Stamper's Select cardstock and stamped Dot Flourish on card front. Adhered diamonds to rose cardstock strip and attached silver brads. Adhered unit to card front. Wishing a Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones ~ ! Hero Arts Collage Gratitude, Play Print & Dot Flourish; Key Lime Memory Box card base, Basic Grey Archangel paper, Stamper's Select cardstock (Papertrey Ink), SU black cardstock; Archival pad in Jet Black (Ranger), Distress pad in Tattered Rose (Ranger); silver brads.

I am SO drawn to this card. Its not just the diamonds, but also the colors, or maybe its the subtle collage. I just can't put my finger on it exactly. All I know is, I LOVE it. It has that kind of appeal that makes you want to appreciate it time after time.

I, too, had a hard time coming up with something for that sketch and skipped it -- but this just is breathtaking. I can see why it was published. Everything about it just catches your eyes.
