Hero Arts is soon going to launch a makeover of their website on 1 September. As part of the celebration they are having a "makeover" challenge. I have never done a makeover of one of my cards and it really is kind of fun - the hard part was choosing a card.
The original card was done in 2011 - seems I was doing a lot of sewing and using patterned paper back then. I still rather like it, but think the makeover is a little more classy because it is simpler.
I stamped the HA leaf on rice paper which my friend Cindy sent to me. It is such fun to use - stamped the leaves with wild honey, dried marigold, peeled paint and seedless preserves distress inks - spritzed it quite heavily with water and just let the colors go where ever. When it was dry I stamped a few leaves randomly on top of the colors and then mounted it on some Neenah gold metallic cardstock. The HA sentiment was stamped on vellum with Versamark and embossed with HA gold. The leaf (part of a Petite Prints set) is no longer available and the sentiment (CL380) has limited availability from Hero Arts. Added some clear sequins and done.
Thanks for visiting today and always enjoy reading your kind comments. Betty
