Legendairy // Hero Arts

Hello all! Today I'm participating in a hop celebrating A Blog Named Hero's fifth anniversary, as part of the Hero Arts Creative Team.

For my card today, I used the fun Egg-cellent! stamp set. I'm kinda obsessed with Stonewash right now, so I based the rest of my color palette around it, using Fresh Peach, Pale Tomato, Butter Bar and Passion Flower.


I stamped my pattern rather randomly, and adhered it down to some kraft cardstock and strip of navy.


For my sentiment (which I think is absolutely hilarious), I covered a piece of cardstock in Stonewash, heat dried it then slathered it with some anti-static powder.
I inked up the sentiment with Versamark first, then Navy, stamped and heat embossed it in clear - gives it a nice little shine. ;)

I topped off the card with some sequins, some from the Hero Arts Ombre Blue collection.
