Pairing up w/Latrice + City Crafters
A card today for a fun challenge that started over at the Hero Arts Flickr group. Joy of Less is More and Jennifer McGuire spent a week in August challenging each other to create a card using a different Hero Arts stamp each day. After some prompting from another member of the group, Joy started a thread where those of us who want to do a similar challenge could sign up and then be paired up with another Flickr member.
My partner for the challenge is sweet Latrice and today we are using the Hero Arts set A Kiss from the Sun for our cards. I also decided to use the sketch from the current City Crafters Challenge Blog (CCCB23) for my card. I just adore A Kiss from the Sun, especially the cute little sun dress. For my card I used some really cute Cosmo Cricket Material Girl papers. After stamping the dress on a piece of the patterned paper I trimmed it out and added a bit of Hero Arts lace ribbon to the bottom of the dress. To tone the colors down a bit I did some distressing using Close to My Heart's Parchment ink. It provides a lovely softness to the edges of your patterned paper and cardstock.
Thanks for taking a peek and don't forget to take a look at Latrice's wonderful project! Have a fabulous day! I will be back on Wednesday with another Hero Arts card for the challenge.
