Hero Arts Week....Day 2

Morning folks....Day 2 of my Hero Arts Week and today I am sharing my new addiction...hey could be this year's cardmaking trend.....stamping onto fabric to create yummy touch feely flowers...



 a sidey-on close up showing the dimension...texture and that gorgeous ruffled edge

                                                             Just Saying Hi           Blossom Art  
                                                                Large Canvas Stripes   Old Letter Writing

TH Distress Inks....Broken China & Brushed Corduroy

And of course these gorgeous Pearl Brads from the Hobbycraft Sale.....and if you live in the North East of Scotland...don't go rushing to the Aberdeen Branch...they are all gone..no doubt due to my lovely buddy Debbi filling her boots A little sneaky peek of something a little different tomorrow for Hero Arts Day 3.


Tonight is Burn's Night...yes it's Rabbie's birthday...an excuse for all us Scots to celebrate with Haggis Neeps and Tatties and a wee dram....so catch up with you all tomorrow over at WOYWW and with another demo day looming....it could be a busy busy desk.
Hugs Kath xxx
Edited to add:  this is one of the cards I made at the Demo Day and I'm sure all the Hero Arts Officionados out there will have noticed that the Old Letter Writing is in fact upside down....oops.

Lol, yes I noticed the writing was upside down but just put it down to artistic license! I won a Simon Says Stamp challenge and got a $15 voucher, plus I have a $50 Amex gift card to spend, and they have a lot of lovely HA stamps on their site, one of my new acquisitions will definitely be the canvas stripes, love that stamp. Happy Burns night, have a wee dram for me too!

Hugs
Brenda

Hi Kath, Good to hear that your demo day went well. Your Hero Arts projects are beautiful. I love that canvas stripe stamp. I did notice the upside down writing, but I thought maybe Buddy nudged your hand at just the wrong moment and made you mess up. Yup, that's the story...Buddy did it. Linda S. in NE
