We are showcasing Hero Arts products this week and firstly I used this Fabulous Flourish.
This is a very quick card as I had onother new stamp I wanted to 'play' with.  I have quite a few flourish stamps but this one so stunning.


My second card for this challenge

I tried many ways of creating this stamp. Firstly I used water paints and spritzed them but didn't have much success. I think the the very detailing of the stamp wasn't the best for that technique, so I then tried to stamp with distress inks very lightly spritzed, eventually I tried using Simon Says Stamp Premium dye inks, again very lightly spritzed.
My favourite result is  Simon Says Stamp Premium dye inks (Sorry TH.)


This one is my favourite of the all - I used Simon Says Doll Pink Dye Ink and mounted by the Doll Pink Ink Cardstock


This is the four I used inked by Simon Says Stamp Premium dye inks - when I see (on the computer) I think the Coral Reef has a gorgeous result!!

Here is the results of the stamps used with Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Inks.



So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting

I've always loved that flourish, too - it sure makes a big impact! And love your pretty poppy cards - what a pretty set! Thanks for sharing your results with the different inks! (I didn't ever think to spritz them!)

All of your cards are so pretty and elegant! I especially love the ones stamped with the SSS inks. But I like how you can create a different look by using different inks. The ones stamped with the TH inks have a more vintage and distress look which is also really pretty!

Fab set of cards Heather, I prefer the SSS ink ones too but I guess it all depends on the look you're going for.
