a sketch & a card - Hero Arts

Hello there dear Friends! Welcome back to another edition of "a sketch & a card"for which I'm using two stamps and a die from Hero Arts this time around.
Bonjour chères Scropines! Voici une nouvelle édition de la rubrique "un croquis & une carte"pour laquelle j'ai utilisé deux tampons et une découpe Hero Arts.

the sketch / le croquis:
the card / la carte:


I used Hero Arts black ink pad to do all my stamping and the butterfly was stamped on watercolor paper which allowed me to pull out my handy dandy watercolor box to color it!
J'ai utilisé l'encre noire Hero Arts également et tamponné le papillon sur du papier aquarellable ce qui m'a permis de le peindre avec mes aquarelles.



N.B: Please feel free to paste the sketch onto your blog if you feel like using it. Thank you for linking it up to art scrap & more and letting me know! I'd love to come and leave you a comment! N'hésitez pas à vous servir de ce croquis. Merci de renvoyer à ce blog si vous l'utilisez. Je serais ravie de venir admirer votre projet!

For some reason this card reminds me of Nessun Dorma, perhaps because I want to "sing" : VINCERO!!!! well, don't know how to conjugate very well, certainly not in Italian at all, so pretend it's your card saying VINCERO! lol

Agnès said...

Waouh.

C'est vraiment tout ce que je trouve à dire.

Waouh.

Agata said...
