Hero Arts Week-Day Five

Still have lots to share as we wrap up Hero Arts Week! Let's get started...

I learned through Hero Arts Facebook Page that today is Chocolate Mint Day....Didn't know there was such a thing. LOL They are hosting a mini challenge to create something with the colors chocolate and mint. Here is what I came up with...
I love Andes Mints. They are so yummy! I filled up a plastic container (from Stampendous) with them and finished it off with some paper, bow, and a sentiment. I also created a card to go with the color scheme. So fun! Happy Chocolate Mint Day to all of you! :)
Next up I am sharing a card set I made using some of my favorite Hero stamps....

It was hard to photograph them all so here is a close up of one of them....

After coloring each flower with copic markers, I added stickles to it to give it some shine. I am in love with that flower stamp. Reminds me of something Carrie would wear from Sex and the City!

I also have been working on these....more shrinky dinks! Look for them in my etsy shop soon! Aren't they fun?

Okay, now for the stuff you've been waiting for...the prizes!

Before I forget, congrats to IVY. She is the winner of the liquid pearls from the last post! Email me with your address so I can send you your goodies.

I'd like to see a video on watercoloring with distress inks or tying ribbon on a card. I don't see where to follow you on your blog. Maybe it's not showing up. I already have you added to my Google Reader, but I'll try looking for the proper way to become a follower. THanks for the opportunity to win goodies!

I always need new ideas on how to colour images. I seem to be okay at stamping them but hopeless at colouring them.

Tami said...

I would love to see a video of coloring or inking. I am not so good at those things. I need some tips. I love stamping, but my coloring seems to ruin things, so I go back to paper piecing. I LOVE Distress inks, but am afraid I don't REALLY know how to use them. Also, any special tips for inking chipboard in your CUTE layout from You Color My World? Oh, and I am a follower now . . . :) Thanks for all the fun!

Sarah Jam Eve said...
