WWC275 – Karen’s Challenge: All About Occasions

Hello and welcome

Today it’s time for the next challenge over at Watercooler Wednesday!  This week  it is Karen’s Challenge: All About Occasions.

This week’s card features Hero Arts stamps.

To start, Hero Florals  Rose Stem was randomly stamped on card in Distress Ink and added around the edges, before adding it to the card front.

It was then  silver heat embossed, watercoloured in the same colour and fussy cut.

2 Circles were cut from white card using SSS Stitched dies. The smallest was coloured with a cheap alcohol marker in the same colour and then the sentiment from the HA stamp set was white heat embossed.

On a strip of vellum, Hero Arts – Sunburst Bold Prints was silver heat embossed.

This strip was then added to the front.  The large circle was then added with raised tape, then the rose (raised tape again) and finally the small blue circle with a slither cut from the edge so it matches the card front.

I was so pleased with this card.  I just love the blue!

Don’t forget to head over to our blog to check out the wonderful inspiration from the rest of our Design Team.

I look forward to seeing what you create this week!

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit.  I love to read your comments.

Stay safe in these difficult times and have a good day

Cheers

Helen

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.
