A Blog Named Hero Challenge #42


It is a lovely sunny day here leading up to the Easter weekend.  I hope you are enjoying some spring sunshine too :)

There is a new challenge over at A Blog Named Hero to use layers/dimension on your card.

I didn't need more of an excuse to get my stencils and embossing paste out - everyone is going mad for stencils at the moment!  I love the range of techniques that you can use with them from embossing paste to inking, spraying, dry embossing....they are a very cost effective way to add texture and interest to your cards.  And there are so many fab stencils coming on to the market at the moment so there is a lot of choice :)

Here is the card that I made for the challenge:

I used Hero Arts number stencil with white paste and then covered it with silver glitter - it is a party on a card!  I stamped a white tag with HA's Tiny Flags in Wet Cement and then covered with a vellum tag on which I silver embossed the sentiments from the set called Yay!.  I silver embossed the main sentiment on white card.  I really like all of the silvers and greys and figure there are about 5 layers on this card including the grey mat, embossed card, two layer tag and main sentiment!!
I will also play along with two other challenges with this card - Virginia's View Challenge #2 and the Hero Arts Sketch Challenge using Sketch #2.
I hope you will check out the DT's cards for the Layer Cake Challenge - remember there is a prize from our great sponsor, Simon Says Stamp!

See you over at ABNH!

  3. This is awesome! Love how you added glitter to your paste. I didn't know you had started a blog! Good for you! Fun isn't it? I think I'm going to stay with blogger for now until they force the google plus thing I guess. I'm too lazy to move right now. LOL. Thanks for your comment on my blog! :-)
