A Blog Named Hero January Challenge - New To Me

Here is A Blog Named Hero January Challenge - New To Me. Below is the challenge photo:


I picked this Hero Arts background stamp - Gratitude Background (CG644) which I purchased a few months ago but never use it yet. I also want to use my MISTI to try this technique for my first time with this background stamp for an ombre look. Below is the finished card:


I found Hero Arts' "Just for you by Lia" stamp set has lots of flower elements similar to this background. So, I picked three flowers from this set to stamp my focal point on a piece of circle white cardstock and colored with Copic markers. Then, I mount the white circle on a piece of green circle cardstock. Below is another lok of the card:


Supplies:
Cardstock: MFT, PTI
Stamps: Hero Arts
