Well, it's been a while since my last post - can't believe it's been over 3 months. I have been making cards between chorus rehearsals, retreats and shows. With all the chorus stuff, I finally finished my holiday cards the week of New Year. Whew - never thought I'd get them all done!!
Right before Christmas, Archiver's (before they announced they're closing) had a Hero Arts 2014 catalog release party. I bought a bunch of new clear stamp sets and had a chance to get inky with the wonderful CL753 What a Guy that they did for Operation Write Home. A dear friend, more like a brother-in-law to me, had a birthday on January 3rd so I whipped up this card:
Now, I'm no artist but Doug likes to fish so I decided to free hand draw a lake (or river or whatever) and put the fish in it. Can you see my little hand drawn fishing line too? Then I added some trees along the shore and watercolored the sky with a hint of color from a sun rise. This was attempt two - version one ended up in the dumpster when the mountains I tried to add looked awful. Seriously awful - LOL.
So hope this give you a little taste of what you can expect when a bunch of us Hero Hostesses have a go with stamps from the 2014 Hero Arts Catalog! We will be hopping later this month so watch for an announcement on the Hero Arts Blog. Thanks for stopping!!
