A Couple of cards

I entered these cards in this month's Hero Arts Contest. It combined two of my favorite things: flowers & coloring.

Here are the details of the May Challenge: Create a NEW stamped card, scrapbook page, or other project based on any of the following…

Fabulous Flowers — Include one or more flowers on your project
ATCs (Artist Trading Cards) — Miniature works of art created on a 2. 5″ x 3. 5″ base. ATCs can be of any theme for this challenge.
Colored Pencil Techniques. Projects using this technique can be of any theme.
Please use at least one Hero Arts stamp or Hero Arts digital element on each of your projects.

I loved Shari Carroll's video tutorial on coloring with colored pencils. She is amazing! Speaking of Shari Carroll, I am so excited because I am spending the weekend with Shari Carroll and Jennifer McGuire. They are co-teaching a weekend of classes in Kettering, Ohio at Simply Scrapbooks.

As for my cards, I used Hero Arts Two Birds CG152; Hero Arts Cling Dots CG139; Hero Arts Special moments CG108; Hero Arts Anytime Messages CL129. I colored both cards with Prismacolor colored pencils. The Cling Dots were stamped with Tattered Rose Distress Ink.

Thanks for visiting. Have a great weekend!
