Inspired By...

Another post from me today.  Click here or scroll down for my CASE Study 100 post.

Challenge #8 at A Blog Named Hero is to create a card which has been inspired by one of those very talented Hero Arts Artists.  I loved this card by Tami Hartley when I saw it.  I thought it was perfect for a teenager, or a man who isn't into football, fishing or golfing.  I loved the grunginess of it, and I do like black on a card - much to my mother's disgust; she thinks black cards are morbid.

Here's my take on it:

The circles are H2871 Holiday Baubles stamped with Versamark and embossed with white powder, then covered with Black Soot Distress ink which is then polished off the embossed surfaces.  It's Your Birthday is CG275.

  1. This is awesome! So cool! Fantastic take on the inspiration and and an inspiration itself! I've never sponged in black - frightened it would be too messy, but this is stunning!
