MAGNOLIA

Hi all - this is my introductory post for A Blog Named Hero Facebook Team for 2018 - so made a special card with a new Hero Arts stamp for the new challenge year.


Created the background for my magnolia flower by stamping it with Versamark and white embossing it.  Stamped and embossed another flower on the same pale gray cs I used for the base and die cut - then colored with polychromos. I used a black glaze pen to make the tiny dots in the flower center. Trimmed the white panel and added to a light gray base.  The sentiment is stamped in black and clear embossed.  Popped up the flower with some foam tape, added a few sequins (tiny gold Nuvo drop in their centers), gold thread and done.

Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to check out the A Blog Named Hero FB page for more Hero Arts inspiration.  Also check out my blog again for more ideas using this gorgeous stamp.
