A Blog Named Hero 5th Anniversary Blog Hop


I was stoked to be invited to be part of the A Blog Named Hero's 5th Anniversary Blog Hop. I am a current Facebook Design Team member for A Blog Named Hero.  This card was made at a recent Craft Retreat using the Hero Arts Layering Flamingo stampset. After inking the images, I masked a line and used distress inks to create the background. To get the soft effect, I used Clarity brushes to add the inks. I love the smooth and soft effect! Thanks for dropping by! There are heaps of prizes if you comment on this blog hop. The next one on the list is Tenia Nelson. The entire blog hop list can be found here.
