Hero Arts Pairing Up Challenge
My partner for the pairing up challenge is Stamprsue. We decided to do our challenge 1 day a week and use a technique that has been featured on the Hero Blog. The first technique chosen was this very creative one shown by Hero Artist Jennifer Mcquire. It had never occured to me to use glossy accents as a mask......but I like it!
I stamped the poppy stamp on patterned paper and then applied glossy accents over the flowers. The only hard part of this technique was waiting for the glossy accents to dry...............Patience is not a virtue of mine! and that is an understatement. I had to totally leave the area so I wouldn't be tempted to fiddle with it before it was dry. Did I make it? Not a chance LOL! It was Almost dry when I got back so I tried to hurry up the process by using my heat tool on the backside of the pp. After it was completely dry I applied distress inks directly to the paper. Wiped off the excess on top of the glossy accents. My stems almost disappeared into the distressed paper so I decided to stitch over them so they would show up again.
I stamped the script stamp with versamark frost over the distressed paper and embossed with clear powder.
Sue came up with the great idea to use techniques for our challenge and I think it is going to be so much fun and I am looking forward to our partnership over the next few weeks. Sue has shown me a preview of her card and it is gorgeous! You can check it out on her BLOG here.
