Interactive cards - Hero Arts challenge for this week.





I don't usually make this kind of card, probably a bit too lazy!
But, as it was this week's challenge I made an effort. All the stamps are Hero Arts and I used primarily 'Aged Mahogany' distress ink, light and heavy sponging. The first photo shows the tag inside the pocket and on the second I have taken the tag out. The 'lace' is a stamp which is embossed and cut out on vellum.




This card was a total card-lift from the Hero Arts gallery. I did not have a clue what to do with these cherry blossom stamps until I saw something that looks a bit like this. I did choose completely different colours and gave it a different look, but I was happy to get some inspiration!



Another photo of my garden.
Getting alot of exercise in the swimming pool which is 30°C (86°F) at the moment!

  1. It's so pretty! I also enjoy, as always, your photos of the lavender and various flowers around your home. Maybe I'll get back to blogging in a month or so.

  5. Gorgeous photo.
    Love the colourful cards. Great use of the stamps & I love the interactive bit always adds to a design when there is more to see.
    I like using pockets a lot in my minibooks so people can pull out decorated tags to make it more tactile.
