Hero Arts Challenge

Good evening my fellow crafters,

I know it's been a few weeks since my last post, work has been seriously getting in the way of my crafting fun.  I have to admit working 10-13 hour days really zaps one's creative juices.  However, I came across this challenge by Hero Arts...

and decided to give it a try.  So here is my entry...

This is an older Hero Arts stamp, plus I only used a part of it.  Here are the details of how I created the card.  First I embossed the front using a Cuttlebug embossing folder, along with the Sizzix Embossing Diffuser.

Depending on what part you use it will not emboss certain areas of the paper.  Here is a look at the inside so that you can see how it works.

What I did was lightly trace the shape of the diffuser, then masked off around it using Post It Notes.  Next using Rich Cocoa Memento ink, I stamped the stamp in that area.  Next I put the card front into the embossing folder, applied the diffuser and ran it through my Big Shotz.  Next I used Copic markers to lightly add color to certain areas of the image.  I did this lightly so that the marker wouldn't go through to the inside of the card.  Here are the colors I used...

 Next to make the image pop, I added Class A Peel stickers around the image and also in certain parts of the embossed areas.  Then I added Stickles to the colored parts of the image.

 So once again, here is the finished card, along with the inside.

 I hope you find some inspiration in my creation, take care and happy crafting!
