Thank You

Hello! I am taking the Kick Start class at Online Card Classes and I am SO INSPIRED from it daily! Today we were to challenge ourselves, so I did. I followed the color challenge from the current Hero Arts contest. I cut out the label shapes and the fern from the Hero Arts Silhouette store. I love that I have the stamp that matches the fern! :) I colored the cut out fern with crushed olive distress ink and stamped it with the Friend Definition stamp also with crushed olive distress ink. I love the subtle tone on tone look. I inked up the top label with ripe persimmon distress ink and stamped over it with the Friend Definition and that same ink. 
For the background, I inked it up with seedless preserves ink, and stamped over it with the same ink and the Three Ferns Stamp from Hero Arts. I really love how this card turned out! I'm excited to try my hand at the Hero Arts contest again. :)

I hope you're having a great day!
♥ Nikki ♥
