New Challenge But Old Stamps

 There's a new challenge in town A Blog Named Hero. Their very first challenge is to choose your favourite Hero Arts products and make a project using it/them!  This challenge took me down memory lane to the time that I first began stamping.  One of the first techniques that I tried was water spritzing and stamping on watercolor paper and my favorites stamps to use for this was Hero Arts.  I have not done this technique in many years and it was fun to do again using Distress Inks and my all time fave "Real Fuchsia" Hero Arts Stamp. I applied the inks directly to the stamps, spritzed with water and stamped on the watercolor paper. The image shown was my first try with the distress inks and I was happy to use it on my card. I used another Hero Arts for the greeting.

Stamps: Hero Arts Real Fuchsia and Hello Greeting
Inks: Distress Inks Crushed Olive, Barn Door Red, Antique Linen
Papers: Textured Green CS, K&CO pattern paper, Watercolor Paper
Red Ribbon and Bow Easy

 I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa
