CHA photos, a HERO ARTS thanks and book update

I wanted to share a few more photos of some CHA projects...

This tag uses a brand new technique for the background.
It's hard to believe, but it's Ranger's pigment inks and Perfect Pearls...

It's kind of hard to photograph, but it's really pretty in person. I'll do a "how to" as soon as I have a little time to spare.

The rose is made with the 6 petal flower on my dimensional rose set of stamps.
It's stamped 3 times...and turned into this fun flower.

Another "rose how to" is in the works. SOON!



Here's a better look @ the rose & leaves...

The mini butterfly is from this set and they are covered with Ranger's new rock candy distress stickles.

Hello Ranger? I'll be buying a gallon of these stickles.
They are AWESOME!
*EDITED*to answer emails......they're shipping in AUGUST!

NEXT...
Here's a total grunge hanging...made from just one page of tim's grungeboard book and embellished with lots of his idea-ology trinkets.

I'll be ordering 100 packages of the new film strip ribbon.
OMG! I LOVE IT!!!

It's shipping @ the end of August & I'll let you know when it's in stock @ eclecticPaperie.

It was simple to attach with the tiny attacher.

I LOVE my flower, stamped on grungepaper and used as a pumpkin...and you already know I LOVE the snaps.

The game spinners make perfect butterfly bodies...or flower stems....or even spinners!

The border stamp is here.


NEXT...
Hero Arts was our neighbor booth @ CHA and I was gifted with some very cool stamps from them.


THANK YOU HERO ARTS!!!

Here's a card I made...especially for you...
It's stamped on kraft colored cardstock...
and then...



I stamped the large flower 3 times on grungepaper and covered it with the new rock candy stickles...
I stamped the smaller flower twice.



NEXT...
make art, studio 490 style book update...

That rose looks good enough to eat! (Well, I could never get mine to look that nice in cake decorating class...good thing I switched hobbies.) Can't wait to see the book.

It's beautiful, Wendy! What color did you use for the pumpkin? It looks like it might be spice marmalade?
