Hero Arts September 2012A Challenge and A Blog Named Hero Challenge #11: Who's The Boss

Combined two of this month's challenge themes at the Hero Arts blog (Fall Feast and A Stamp for All Seasons) to create a Halloween themed card:


I stamped and embossed Hero Arts H5244 Winter Tree (from 2009) on white cs.  After masking off an area for a "moon" I inked up my brayer with a spectrum pad from Stampin' Up/Tsukineko called Pumpkin Patch and rolled away!  I stamped a piece of olive cs with Hero Arts S5507 Envelope Pattern to create the grassy knoll. 
Other Materials Used:  Inkadinkado sentiment, American Crafts buttons, Papertrey ink white cs, WPlus9 banner die, DCWV pp, Memory Box bird die, Michael's black cs

Since I used embossing in my design I'm also linking this up to the current A Blog Named Hero challenge:


Hope everyone has a great weekend!  We are off to the vintage car show and road "race" today in Watkins Glen, NY!

Gorgeous card! Those colors are so saturated, beautiful! I didn't know you could get that kind of coloring with a brayer and a spectrum ink pad! Love the silhouette bird too. Thanks for playing with us at A Blog Named Hero!
