The local radio station always mentions Feeling Funky Friday. I don't get what they do that is funky on a Friday, but none the less the phrase is usually stuck in my head all day long! I perhaps should listen just a wee bit better and find out what the Funky is in a Friday!
Well today my funky in a Friday is showcasing the cool Basic Grey/Hero Arts Background Stamp, Curl Pattern, included in this month's Artful Delight Card kit and the eclectic look you can achieve by pairing it with other fun elements from the kit. I stepped outside my normal bounds and played with loads of distress inks on the above card. First I embossed the background with white and covered it with two shades of yellow. I adhered this panel to the blue base, after apply the fun rub-ons from the kit for a punch of black. I added a stamped sentiment from Hero Art's So Sorry set (not included in the kit). I was inspired to try something new, requested by CASE Study's Anniversary Challenge, after seeing all the fabulous designs on their latest hop.
I have to mention, again, how much I adore these kits, not only for the amount of product in them, but because they offer up opportunities to participate in new challenges. Believe it or not, I only own a handful of Hero Arts set, and having this background stamp now opens up so many possibilities for the few that I have!
Both these cards were inspired by Hero Art's August Sketch Challenge and Clean and Simple Stamping Challenge, and A Blog Named Hero's Freestyle Challenge.
