Inspired by Lisa Spangler

The challenge this week at A Blog Named Hero is to make a card inspired by a Hero Artist.
I am inspired by all of them - so much choice!

 I had a quick browse of the Hero Arts blog and made my decision. I have chosen a beautiful card made by the awesome Lisa Spangler. This is her gorgeous card...

And here is my take on Lisa's card ..

I stamped the background  in grey ink and then used gelatos to create the watercolour effect.
Then I made a discovery - I LOVE this flower image stamped in black with the colours poking through! So now I've fallen in love with this stamp all over again!
Next I added a bit of washi tape and used my favourite sentiment tape and sequins and mounted the panel on a white card base to finish it off. 

I am also entering this in the SSS Wednesday challenge which is Anything Goes and the SSS Monday Challenge which is Not so Mellow Yellow (I hope I have enough yellow!).
Keep it Simple Challenge have a watercolour theme too, so I am also entering their challenge.


  1. I love this card! The gelato effect is perfect and I really love the flower stamp and your additions of washi tape and motex tape. SO COOL!

  2. Wow! Your take on the inspiration is wonderful. I can see why you fell in love with that stamp- it works so well here. I think I like your version best!

  3. Fabulous! I love the vibrancy of the gelatos, and the image stamp looks great in black.

  4. This card is so beautiful! Love how you created the wonderful background colors and your stamping is fabulous. Thank you so much for sharing with us at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. :)
