Hero Arts Hero Hostess Blog Hop 2013

Good morning and welcome to the Hero Arts Hostess Blog Hop, featuring fabulous stamps from the new 2013 releaseI so hope you have been enjoying the week long event, with so much amazing inspiration!! Today is day 5, and the last day of the Hop :( You should have arrived at my blog from the oh so talented blog of Heather Doran.


I choose to play with the Hero Arts Cling CG517 Hexagon Background :)


I began by embossing the stamp image with Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto watercolour paper. Then I applied various colours of Tim Holtz Distress Ink re-inkers one at time, spritzed them with a mixture of Perfect Pearls and water mixture. I tilted the paper around and let the ink travel. Then I choose another ink colour and repeated the process till I had the whole  paper covered. Let me tell (warn) you...this is very addicting and fun!!! I could of done this all day long, so I do have another one to share :)



For the sentiments I used an all time favorite of mine: Hero Arts Cling stamp  CG277 Friends are Treasures. To finish off the cards, I added a little bling with gems also from Hero Arts :)

Hero Arts will be awarding prizes from randomly drawn comments. For a chance to win, simply comment on ANY of the stops along the hop on ANY day, including each day's starting post at the Hero Club Blog. The more comments you leave, the better your chance of winning :)

Next stop on your blog hop, will be to head on over to Kelly Booth's blog...one sweet and talented lady!!!

You can find a master list of the hop links at the Hero Arts Club Blog HERE.  

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs, TRace
