Guest Designing at 'A Blog Named Hero'

Hi everyone,

I'm honoured today to be guest designing over at A Blog Named Hero! The theme of the current challenge is to re-do an old card you made.

Here's my old card created for a Hero Arts blog hop last January...

...and here's my new card.

For both cards I used Hero Arts Large Flower background stamp and stuck with the same design. For the older card I white heat embossed the stamped image onto my cardstock, then pressed Versamark over the entire image before using chalks to color in the design. It was fun to try this technique but I didn't like how the details got lost in it. My new card was inspired by it and a technique I tried last month using Studio Calico Mr. Huey's color mists to color in the image. (Tip: Use a heat gun to dry the Mister Huey's. I let mine air dry over night and there were still wet stops...I think from the Opaque White Mister Huey's I mixed with the other colors).

Be sure to head over to A Blog Named Hero to get more information about the challenge and to see what the fabulous design team has come up with!

Thanks for stopping by!

Wow, I love your remake card Sarah! Gorgeous colours and I like how the images are much more defined compared to the dreamy quality of the first card.

I'm loving your second chance card! I love that you can see more of the detail, It's such an elegant, rich looking image!

Gorgeous! I love how bold the second one is and how soft the 1st is.
