Hero Arts July Challenge

 This months theme over at Hero Arts is "Summertime and Parties",  I am always inspired by Suzanne's cards and the way she makes beautiful scenes with alot of detail, so far from the CAS style that I have been trying lately.

Here is my attempt at that style, I decided to dust off a few older Hero Arts stamps and have a play.

I started by stamping and embossing in black the silhouette grass stamp, I then made a mask for the sun and distressed with lots of Barn Door, Spiced Marmalade and Forest Moss ink.  Then I removed the mask and gently applied Scattered straw ink to the sun. 
For the poppies I stamped and embossed in black again on some bright red card, I cut out the poppies and added the seed beads. The butterflies are stamped and embossed on vellum.
