MMHK104-Card 2

Happy Wednesday everybody!

Today I am sharing a card inspired by designs in an older Hero Arts catalog.

My mojo was playing hide and seek with me last week, I got tired of looking for it so I decided to flip thru some older catalog instead.  Hahaha!!  I was inspired by these cards on pg 58 of the Hero Arts 2011 catalog.

I really like the kraft on white combo and how the flowers are filled in with white on the bottom card.  Also the scallop border on the top one intrigued me.  And I came up with this:

I stamp with black ink, then colour in the leaves and flower using cream and pale pink colouring pencils.  The flower center is embellished with a pearl and highlighted with white gel pen.  Sentiment is stamp in white and heat embossed with white powder.

Oh, this is gorgeous, Cindy! I still have some old HA catalogs, and forget to use them as inspiration - thanks for the reminder!

Beautifully done Cindy! Love the kraft with white highlights and the dimension of your flower.

I'd say you should lose your mojo more often if the results are like this! You've outdone yourself, Cindy - this is a real jaw-dropper! I like it LOTS better than the HA examples. Your softness and dimension are uniquely fantastic! Hugs, mkm

This is really gorgeous, Cindy! I love your soft coloring with your pencils, and how you added dimension to the flower! Placing the scallops along the side was the perfect choice, too!
