Ellen Hutson + Hero Arts Blog Hop!


Today I'm excited to be hopping with artists from both Hero Arts and Ellen Hutson, celebrating Hero Arts, who is also featured on ellenhutson.com in their Meet the Maker series!

Today's card features a couple products from the Hero Arts June release.


I stamped the Jungle Bold Prints background stamp in Unicorn White ink on Pitch Black cardstock. Once dried completely, I colored it in with my Faber-Castell Polychromos Colour Pencils.


To finish the card, I pulled out another set from the release, Tropical Flowers. I again stamped the flower and leaves in white on the black cardstock, then colored with my pencils. I also cut them out with the matching dies.


The message is also from the Tropical Flowers stamp set, and was embossing in gold on a strip of vellum.

Now it's time to hop!! You can win one of three $25 gift certificates to the Ellen Hutson shop! Winners will be drawn from commenters along the blog hop so make sure to comment at each stop before Friday, June 28th at 11:59pm PST. Winners will be notified by email.
