Bamboo and Dragonflies

Hero Arts has been a tad neglected here of late, so I'm showing an Asian-themed card using Hero Arts bamboo and sentiment stamps and my (relatively) new dragonfly punch.


The color scheme is actually prettier in real life...issues with contrast in Picasa made it impossible for me to edit it to be more accurate. The red is Cherry Cobbler from SU (so it's not as dark as the photo makes it look but still a nice, rich red). The gray is Memento London Fog.

Have a lovely weekend!

  1. Gorgeous Susan, you and London Fog, I think it's almost as big a favourite as Pear Tart

  20. I love your style and I love Betsy veldman's style,
    I am subscribed to both. My acrylic blocks have
    StazOn all over them, it drives me crazy and
    it keeps the clear mount rubber stamps from sticking to
    the blocks so well,but it's because I'm heavy Handed. Lol
    and it's permanent,the only thing that will remove it is finger nail polish
    remover for acrylic nails,but I'm out of it! So, I just craft on.
    And hope to remember to add it to my grocery list. Lol
