So excited to be selected as a Fab 5 winner over at Hero Arts first 1/2 of August contest. The themes are scene cards, kids cards and creature cards. I combined them all for this card for my little niece Grace who has a birthday coming up in September:
The new Basic Grey Oxford 6x6 paper pad had the amazing paper for the caterpillar body. I cut one in white card stock and one in the Oxford green pp. Cut the antenae and legs off the patterned one and popped with foam tape onto the full body one after I sponged it with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Couldn't resist adding a googly eye from Michael's and lots of Hero Arts gems. The smiling sun actually has darling curlicue ends on some of the rays but my paper was too fragile and a couple of them tore - my solution was to snip them all off, much as I hated to do it!
The "grass" came free with my Silhouette and I added texture with Hero Arts Envelope Pattern design block. The "sky" is blue card stock stamped with Hero Arts Magical Background Cling stamp - so versatile! The Hero Arts sentiment is from a darling speech and thought bubble clear set called Message Bubbles. It has dots on it but I covered them up with some metal decor from Hero Arts.
Thanks for stopping!
