celebrating the hostesses

Last week on the Hero Arts blog I had the pleasure of introducing the newest group of Hero Hostesses -- Linda, Heather, Anita, Sharon & Sally. Five wonderful women...kind, generous, supportive, talented and then some! All around gems. On Friday, Sarah came up with the fun idea of a color challenge based on the new Hostesses' chosen apron colors:


I hopped on board and here's my card...


The five large tulips each represent a Hostess, while the small daisies are a nod to the traditional yellow Hostess apron. (Hostesses are given yellow aprons with their names and can dress them up as they wish.)

Here's a little on the process: Stamp flowers onto white cardstock with Versamark and emboss with white powder. Watercolor with Memento markers. (Just scribble markers on a non-porous surface, mist with a small amount of water, and paint away.) Watercolor blue background. Stamp thank you text background. Wipe any excess ink from embossed areas. I think the rest is pretty straightforward but if you have any questions, ask away in the comments. :)

Stamps: CG199 Sunny Smiles, CG268 Thank You Definition, S5435 Graph Background, CL510 Sweet Threads Labels (sentiment)

Alrighty, that's enough blah blah blah for a Monday. :) Hope your week's off to a great start!
