Our last week as Hostesses!!


This is our last week as Hero Hostesses and the time has just flown by!

For our final week we have decided to run a last challenge called "Inspired By" The Hero Arts Flickr group is a constant source of inspiration, everyone in the group is so talented and I love to browse through the gallery. But as Hosti's we have decided to make a card inspired by a current Hostess, in order of the Hostess announcements.
This means I have been inspired by my friend and Hostess in Purple Linda, here is the card she made for another challenge set by Anita, it was for her colour challenge using blue and brown. I love the silhouette grass stamp and the way she has stamped it on the lined paper and set the card at an angle.   I also love the distressed rustic look of this card.


This is my card, I have used the same silhouette  grass stamp as Linda but added the poppies as they always seem to grow in corn fields.  First I stamped the poppies and then made masks over the flowers so that I could over stamp in distress ink with the wheat.  I then coloured the poppies with copics. I have stamped the green background layer with Graph Background and the red card with the Magical Background.

Sharon has made a card inspired by me and I think its perfect, I love pink and this card is so pretty, thank you Sharon.

Anyone who would like to take part in the challenge can create a card\project inspired by any member of the Hero Arts Flickr group - there are 3,627 members to choose from! Full details of the challenge are here I hope you find time to have a go!!





Supplies: Hero Arts Stamps CG211 Magical Background,S5435 Graph Background. S5316 Silhouette Grass, H5350 Long Stem Poppy. Distress ink Scattered straw and Tea Dye  Copic Markers.
