ABNH Challenge: Inspired by, and collaborating with Mama Elephant

Hi friends!

http://www.ablognamedhero.blogspot.com.au/2014/05/challenge-43-inspired-by-hero-artist.html
Wow, we've got a fun challenge for you over at ABNH today, we've got a collaboration that I've had organised since, oh, February or so and I'm SO excited I get to finally reveal it.




ABNH will be playing with the fabulous MAMA ELEPHANT this month! WOOT WOOT!
Mama Elephant make such sweet, fun stamps, they're the perfect acoompaniment to Hero Arts.

So after MUCH deliberation, because let's face it, all the Hero Arts Artists are inspiring, I went with my dear friend Lisa Spangler. I love love LOVE Lisa's look. It's hard to describe, but it's such a fun combination of (what I lovingly call) Granny Florals/patterns, next to super fun, modern (and sometimes neon) twists. Her cards are ALWAYS genius, but they look so organic and I just love them. She creates the most delightful cards, and seriously, I smile EVERY time I see them.

I looked over her blog, and instead of being inspired by one specific card, I let the "Lisa-mojo" flow into me LOL. Here's what I made:



Now be sure to pop on over to ABNH to check out the rest of the projects, and if you enter in the challenge, you could be up with a chance to win

I can definitely see the Lisa mojo in your card, Linda! Love the floral background combined with the cool neon letters :)

I love how this background stamp complements the alphas on your sentiment perfectly! Such a pretty color combo, too! I think Lisa would be so pleased to see how you've nailed her eclectic paper crafting styles..beautiful card, Linda!
