Hero Arts Monthly Challenge

The challenge this month for Hero Arts - Flowers, ATCS or Watercolor Pencils includes some of my favorite things.  I love my Hero Arts flowers, ATCs  are so much easier for me as it is all about the artwork and not so much about the design, and watercolor pencils which are my favorite coloring medium....

I worked on two ATC's this morning for the challenge. 

First the fabulous peacock stamp:

 I love this striking image and it allows you to use sponging of colors over the image. The background is the music design block stamped in soft sand shadow ink from Hero Arts.

My second ATC uses the beautiful cling rose stamp from Hero Arts:  

 

The inks include Ranger Archival Ink, Memento Rose Bud, Memento Bahama Blue, Memento Pear Tart  and  Versafine Smokey Gray. 

Hope your Saturday is wonderful!
