Hero Arts "Nature" / SSS Wednesday "Anything Goes" / SSS Monday Challenge "Hint of Clover"

I wanted to play at Hero Arts "Nature" Challenge (runs until March 20th) and when I looked through my HA stamps I found one that I don't remember ever using. I started playing around with different inks and ended up with 6 images:

I made 5 cards. Today I am going to show you three of them so that the post doesn't get to long.


This one I inked with an old Color Box Chalk Ink "Lavender", mounted on a pale lavender card. I stamped a border on the bottom with a mix of Hero Arts and Stampin' Up stamps with the same ink, but stamped off. Finished with a Hero Arts sentiment and a silver dragonfly brad.


On this one I used the Distressed Ink "Peeled Paint" not spritzed with water. Because it was so stark on the white I sponged over it to make it look softer. Dragonfly brad in copper, same sentiment, foam mounted on cream panel that was embossed with PTI's Linen embossing plate that is so perfect when you want just a hint of embossing. The green cardstock is stamped with Hero Arts envelope pattern.


Three different DI (Faded Jeans, Broken China, Peeled Paint), spritzed with water. Copper dragonfly brad, Hero Arts sentiment, mounted on blue panel with PTI Linen embossing plate on green card.

Hallo Susanne, schön sind all deine Karten geworden!
(Ja, die Schneeglöckchen und Krokusse blühen gerade im Garten, ja der Winter kann da oben ganz schön lang dauern, in Detroit hatten wir damals bis in den April rein den Schnee liegen! Da konnt ich ihn dann auch irgendwann nicht mehr sehen :-)) ) Lg
