Challenge Time at ABNH: One Layer!

Hi friends!

It's time over at  A Blog Named Hero, for another challenge and this month it's all about

For the entire month of April, we're collaborating with the wonderful Altenew, who have supplied us with a stamp set each to play with--thank you so much Altenew!

Of course, we're combining those stamp sets with Hero Arts products, to show you how wonderfully they go together.

Here's my card.

I haven't done this technique of stamping white and then a colour overtop of kraft cardstock for ages so I thought it was time to crack it out again.

To stamp the flowers from the Altenew Vintage Flower set, I started with White Unicorn Ink from Hero Arts and then layered Red Royal, Fresh Peach, Bubble Gum for the flowers (different flowers, not all of those colours on every flower!), and I used Green Hills and Foever Green Shadow Ink for the leaves.

This took  AGES, I'm not going to lie. I'm not so good with the lining up of the Altenew stamps, but once you get it, it goes so smoothly.

I stamped the sentiment using Black Hero Arts Dye Ink, but to give it the same white shadow effect, I added a little white gel pen to the edges of the letters, so the sentiment coordinated better with the flowers.

This little baby is going to my mother in law, who's birthday I'm LATE FOR! ack.

I hope you'll pop over to the blog to see the rest of the Design Team's projects, they're seriously stunning, and if you join us in the challenge, you have a chance to win!

Big thanks to our wonderful sponsors

hope you'll join us!

See you soon

Jaw droppingly amazing Linda, saw this beauty over at ABNH and just realised I didn't pin it, all sorted now! Thanks for the inspiration, I don't think I've ever tried this technique... looks like you've inspired me to give it a go!
