Hero Arts Inspiration

On Friday Kelly over at Hero Arts posted a picture of a gorgeous sofa with the most beautiful different coloured ruffled cushions and encouraged us to make a card based on the inspiration we got from the photo. I was totally inspired by the pattern on the actual sofa as well as the colours of the cushions!

Paper: PTI cardstock; Neenah Solar White
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Olive Dye Ink (CTMH); Vintage Photo DI; Copic Markers
Stamps: Hero Arts
Other: PTI Edgers Die #1; Pearls (Recollections)

I stamped the Large Fabric Design cling stamp using Olive dye ink onto Neenah Solar white cardstock and used the PTI Edgers die to cut the edge.  I inked all the edges with some Vintage Photo DI.

I stamped one of the circular stamps from an old Hero Arts set several times, coloured them in with my Copic Markers, cut them out, adhered them and added a matching pearl to each.  That's it!

I just like all the colours. See you later!
