Leafy Vines

I have been playing around with one of my new stamps from Hero Arts. There are some really great cards made using this stamp. I wanted to use it in two different ways for a few challenges. The first challenge is the Hero Arts March contest - a card with the following spring colours: soft purple, soft yellow, soft sky, soft green and charcoal. This contest has been going for the whole month and I have not submitted many cards mainly because I do not have these colours. Then I thought I can use similar tones instead of the Hero Arts colours. So I have come up with these two cards.
The first card is done as a single layer with masking and Hero Arts midtone inks. This one will be submitted to Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge.

The second card was embossed in white and distress inks sponged into the background and sprayed with Perfect Pearls. I was not able to get a good photo to show off the pearly sheen on the card. The butterflies were white embossed on a soft blue coloured vellum with a gem on each.

I am also submitting these cards to the A Blog Named Hero - Freestyle challenge. Thanks for dropping by! Don't forget to comment on my Blogversary blog for a chance to win a prize.
