Looking forward to Spring!

We are getting soooo close to enjoying sunshiny days with Spring weather.  But I don't dare put the snow shovel and salt away just yet.  We have started our seeds for the garden in a little indoor greenhouse, figure we'll get them in the ground the first week of May.

If you're following the Hero Arts Blog, this month we have sketches as part of the April challenge.  I thought I'd share a card I did using one of the sketches and some of our brand spankin new Basic Grey stamps and papers.  These will be available soon at a retailer near you.  The paper pad is called "Sweet Threads" and the Poly Clear stamp set is "Sweat Threads Labels" (CL510).



I created a window, much like the card I did for the HA blog HERE.  I used color pencils on the flowers and leaves to make them stand out a bit more.  Fun new stamps, I hope you'll have a chance to play with them soon!

I've had questions regarding the canvas we made for class featured in the Hero Arts video from the Collins Group show.  As much as I would love to share the details on making the canvas, I must allow the retailers  who attended our class teach it in their stores first.  BUT, I promise, I will eventually share and perhaps make a step-by-step video how to.  I hope you understand. 

Enjoy!
