Hero Atrs October 2011 Challenge

Hero Art's has a new challenge for October, which includes 3 sketch's.


Here is my take on one of the sketches.

For this card I started off by punching circles 1 3/4 inches, nine times. Using repositionable adhesive I laid the cirlces onto a 6x6 card and used distress inks to create the blue background. (Broken China, Tumbled Glass, Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire). Using the cling snowflake stamp I stamped using a Pearl Paint dauber. After I lifted all the circles off I stamped snowflakes into the white spaces...

Next I took the circles that I had removed and added them to another 6x6 card adding brown snowflakes ontop of the ink and pearl paint. It was so fun getting 2 cards out of this technique.  

Thanks so much for stopping by. I will not be posting for the next couple of weeks but hopefully when I get back I will be able to give these other 2 sketches a try. Have a great couple of weeks and check out the Hero Art's blog to join in on the fun.


  1. Love them both, Karen! Such pretty colors! Have a good couple of weeks! :)

  2. Gorgeous stamping, Karen! Love the shine!

  3. These are so clever. Love them

  4. So love the use of all the inks here and the snowflakes are beautiful. The ribbon gives these cards a touch of elegance too. Great job Karen. Have a safe trip. Thinking of you. Wow your such a keener now aren't you to squeeze in this challenge before you go! Lol.

  5. Karen, these are both so pretty! I love the inking on the first one & the colors you used on the 2nd one.
