Flower Trio Thank You


Aloha Everyone!  It’s Niki G. here to share a Clean and Simple card to go with this month’s challenge theme!

In today’s card I used the very versatile Hero Arts BasicGrey Shine Bright Stamp Set


I’ve been using this stamp set to create backgrounds, but in today’s card

I’m using a single image and masking.


I initially stamped the center flower which is the full image, then used some tape

to mask off the bottom leaves to create a shorter flower…like this…


I took my ink pad and inked it up then removed the tape before pressing onto my card panel.

Tip: I had a few spots that didn’t ink well, so I took a permanent fine tip marker and filled in the lines where it needed!

Here’s a closeup…


I colored the images with copic markers and outlined them with a light gray copic to create some dimension.

The sentiment is from Hero Arts Stamp Your Own Fruit which I cut apart.

The card panel was adhered to a Hero Arts Blush Folded Card.

That’s it for me!  Hope this inspires you to join us!!
