Backgrounds take center stage this month at A Blog Named Hero.  Chose the lovely Flower Garden coverplate die for my card today.


First made a smooshed a piece of watercolor paper with wilted violet, peacock feathers and picked raspberry DI and when dry, die cut it.  Then die cut three more of the coverplate with white cs and layered it all up.  Used copic markers to add some green on the leafy areas and give more definition to some of the flowers.  Added this to a white card base and framed in white.  The sentiment was stamped in black and clear embossed.

Be sure to join our challenge gallery on Instagram- (#ABNHAugustchallenge) for a chance to win one of two Hero Arts gift cards.
