>Hero Arts Layered Backgrounds
>These are a couple of cards that I did today, when I was playing with the Layered Background technique that Shari Carroll showed on the Hero Arts blog today. I didn’t have all the stamps she did, so I improvised. I used part of the Friend Definition for the text, I don’t have the Envelope Pattern stamp (yet, it’s in the mail) I used a retired SU Crosshatch stamp. For the image stamp, I used the new Hero Arts Large Blossom stamp. I did about a half dozen of these, using different Distress Inks.
For the green card, I used a mix of Old Paper to do the block inking, Wild Honey for the Crosshatch and a mix of broken China, Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo for the inks. I did experiment, because I don’t own a Ranger Craft sheet yet, but borrowed a friend’s for this technique. It’s next on my list to buy:).
For the Purple card, I started by stamping the Large Fabric stamp in Milled Lavender on some Almost Amethyst cardstock, then I added a pink Bazzil layer under the image. For the colours on the image, I used Worn Lipstick for the block colouring and Crosshatch, and a combination of Chipped Sapphire, Dusty Concord and Broken China for the flowers.
