Hello there, today I have the absolute pleasure of taking part in a blog hop to celebrate the collaboration between Hero Arts and Ellen Hutson for their United We Flourish campaign. The Hero Arts set is called Better Together and is filled with beautiful bird images. It is exclusive to Ellen Hutson.
For my card today, I decided to use two of the bird images that look like parrots (to me). They were on the stamp set in this orientation and I thought that they looked like they were in love so went with an anniversary card. I started off by stamping the branch and the two birds on to white cardstock with black ink. They were then coloured using Copic Markers and cut out using the coordinating dies.
I then took a white panel of cardstock and scored lines on to it using a scoring board and bone folder. I took the 'happy anniversary' sentiment from the Hero Arts Many Everyday Messages set and stamped this towards the bottom of the panel. It was then adhered to a white A2 card base with tape runner. The branch was added on with more tape runner and then the birds added on top with foam tape.
I took the heart cluster from the Hero Arts Sun Showers Frame Cuts set and cut these from white cardstock. I coloured two of them with red Copic Markers and then added them to the card with liquid glue. To finish off, I added Glossy Accents to the hearts and the bird's beaks.
