We got back last weekend, and I have had a week of getting back to routines...and absolutely no card making mojo. Then I found out about the Stamp Your Story contest at Hero Arts. I knew exactly what I wanted to make to submit to the contest. You have time to enter to, it runs til September 30th.
This summer hubs and I have attended several summer sunset community concerts here in Maryland. At one of the concerts I saw a young girl wearing a tank top that inspired this card.
Here is my inspiration picture:
Those hearts, the neon, the black I immediately thought of the Brush Strokes stamp set! I used some white textured card stock and took my small Hero Arts neon ink pads and created wide bands of color across the card.
Next I stamped the hearts and arrow. I cut out the "I" on the top panel, and adheared the "you" die cut (part of the Hero Arts Thank You Die) . I mounted this panel on a black card base with 1/8 " foam and then thought something was missing.
I tried twine, a bow, leaving it alone...then added some black enamel accents. Love!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
