A Hero Arts Retailer



Today is my last post for a2z – it’s been such a wonderful challenge for me to have been creating with Hero Arts supplies and the great design team.  Have a trip to Europe planned this summer, my daughter has a new (to her) cabin on a beautiful lake in Minnesota where I plan on spending some lovely relaxing time and also helping her redecorate and finally a high school class reunion to attend in Wisconsin- so no time to keep up with design team stuff.


In keeping with the stencil theme challenge this month, I used the Circle Tree stencil (actually a Christmas tree) to selectively add the gold embossed circles to the watercolor background.  The background was made with Ranger picked raspberry distress ink on an acrylic block, misted with water and smooshing with a piece to Canson watercolor paper.  I used a dauber to add Versamark on the stencil and then embossed with Ranger liquid platinum.  The ferns were stamped onto a piece of vellum, embossed and fussy cut.  Layered it all and added some gold thread and few sequins.  Thought this card could be used for many different occasions so a sentiment will go inside when needed.

There’s still time to enter the April stencil challenge so get out those stencils and create a gorgeous card to enter – and maybe be the winner of a $25 gift certificate to the store.  If you want to purchase anything from the store, you can get 15% off – just use code BETTY15. Did you know that we are on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook?  If you haven’t done so already, please follow us on these different social media outlets.

Many thanks to a2z for the opportunity to be on my first design team.
