A2Z Scrapbooking August Challenge

Hello Blogging Friends,

Today I am going to share with you a card I made for the a2zScrapbooking August Challenge ~ "Bright & Beautiful".  

For this challenge all you have to do is use a Hero Arts product.

Here is my card:


Gina Marie Designs Scalloped Oval die
Copic markers
White card stock
Paper from the Molly & Rex Specialty Cardstock
Black ink

For this A2 card I started with white card stock as the base of the card.  I took a piece of the Molly & Rex Specialty paper from a 6 x 6 pack and added that to the card.  I took a piece of watercolor paper and some black ink and I stamped the Hero Arts Butterfly and Flower onto the paper.  I stamped the flower twice so I could add some dimension to the flower.  I colore the flower and the butterfly in with Copic markers and then cut out the flower and the butterfly with the dies that came with this Hero Arts Butterfly and Flower Stamp & Cut set.  I then cut out the flower with the Gina Marie Designs Scalloped Oval and attached that to the card.  I added the second flower to the paper and the butterfly.  I took black ink and stamped the "hello" sentiment from that stamp set onto the card.  I think the flower and the butterfly are both Bright and Beautiful!!
