Hi friends!!

This week over at ABNH, we're teaming up with Neat and Tangled to show how great N&T and Hero Arts products work together!

Here is my card, which is up on the blog today

I took the Hero ArtsEtched Daisy stamp, and stamped it repeatedly (and overlapping slightly) using Pale Tomato, Butterbar and Bubble Gum Shadow Inks. I'm definitely going to be trying this technique again with a variation of colours. Love the effect.

Then, to get the little 'matte' piece (the darker pink/red piece) to match perfectly, I swiped the Pale Tomato ink directly onto a strip of scrap cardstock then cut two TEENY thin strips out of it, and adhered them to either side of the stamped panel. This ensures the colour matches perfectly AND I save on cardstock :)

The sentiment is from N&T :) Love this one.

Be sure to stop by and leave a comment on the blog each day this week, as there is a chance to win a fabulous prize pack thanks to the generous and super-sweet Danielle!

There are lots more inspirational projects over at the Neat and Tangled Blog too :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Linda xoxo
