Hero Arts Club Challenge

It's back to the grindstone once again craftywise....lots of projects and stuff to finish off this week but I just couldn't resist the challenge this week over on the Hero Arts Club Blog     The week is being  hosted by my all time favourite Hero Arts Designer....the one and only Shari Carroll and the challenge this week is......

April Showers Bring
May Flowers

create a project with some sort of flower... you can make cards or pages with stamped flowers, create a shaped card, use paper flowers, make your own blooms with cut papers, etc.

and you know me and my flowers.....just
love anything with flowers on it...but not a lot of
spare time....so kept it simple......

Papers: Pink Petticoat "Washed Out" Collection...Duck Egg Blue
Big Dots.......Duck Egg  Blue
Coredinations...latte...scored and sanded to create
wood panel effect
Stamps: Hero Arts....Solid Posy.....Good Posy ..Good Long Flower
Friends Background
Inks: Hero Arts Shadow....Lilac
Tim Holtz: Distress Ink...Brushed Corduroy
Ribbon: American Crafts
This is a real oldie set of Hero Arts stamps.....I have had them for years but still use them and they are great for creating these shabby chic crumpled flowers...so the motto is.....don't get rid of your old stamps....just like your clothes....they will come back in fashion....am just wondering when it will happen with my wardrobe......well off to walk "The Budster"......grab a bite of breakfast and it's off on the daily commute to the old cubbyhole and get those crafty fingers working.......catch up with you all later.....Hugs Kath xxxxxxx

  13. Kath-Your clothes will come back in fashion when you are too large to fit them or they've already gone to the charity shop. Wish I still had the one and only Mary Quant style dress I owned with Peter pan collar, long cuffs and chiffon sleeves or the white boots I got married in first time round. Would be able to donate them to a museum.
