Another Hero Arts stamp ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well.  This is another stamp that I was lucky enough to win from Brenda.  It’s another Hero Arts stamp and I know I used this one last year lol!  It’s a lovely gorgeous stamp perfect for CAS or messy and as I am still having a thing for thick vellum/parchment and it was fun to make another one of this style and here it is …

An A6 little card
This is the back of the card - I added a snippet to hide the double sided tape
This is the inside, I have propped the overlay open
A final look

Created for me and especially for these Challenges
 AAA Cards Challenge #66 Watercolours
Spectrum Noir Facebook Challenge Use a Die plus Spectrum Noir pens/products
 I am in summer flower mode!

The sentiment was die cut from another watercolour painted reject, the flowers were stamped with my Spectrum Aqua pens and the little card in the middle is a snippet that was left over from another project.  It didn’t take me long to create and it felt good to use that snippet of card immediately, yes I know I am sad but I love using snippets and rejects lol!

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment.  I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon  ttfn Karen x

Beautiful, Karen! and there's nothing wrong with "happy"! Love the water color look on that, and the overlay really makes those blossoms so dreamy! Hugs!

Super creations Karen and pleased the stamps are coming in useful, apols for the lack of visits but having a relapse and typing is a challenge.

Really super card Karen - love how you covered up the DST at the back, clever idea! Gorgeous stamping and that die is wonderful, so useful for loads of occasions. You could mix it with many stamped word such as Birthday, Retirement, Anniversary - the list goes on! The Winne and Walter 'Friend' die is very similar too!
