Small Stamps: Challenge Time at A Blog Named Hero.

Hi there!

It's time for our first challenge of the year over at A Blog Named Hero, so I thought I'd drop in here to show you my project.

This month we're challenging our readers to use those oft-forgotten teeny little stamps that are in sets--flowers, hearts, stars etc.

Here is my card:


 I used the TEENY little leaf-cluster image from an older Hero Arts Set (CL497) and I repeatedly stamped it in gradually darkening colours of Hero Arts Shadow Inks.

I then added a little scoring using my scoreboard, to give an extra hint of interest, without taking away from the original pattern I'd stamped.

I stamped the great Crafty Friends stamp onto some neenah white cardstock, and used that as a sentiment panel.

To finish off, I mounted this all onto a Hero Arts Midnight Notecard and added some enamel dots from My Minds Eye.

Nice and simple but I love the effect! I should score through my cards more often, I love how it looks. Just enough added detail without going over the top.
