New Contest, New Card!

Happy New Year!

Today, Hero Arts started a new monthly contest and I couldn't wait to play along! It's all about something new. There is also a color challenge, which I hope to play with soon, and their technique this month is ATC's.

I'm also entering this into A Blog Named Hero's challenge, which is all about something new too.

For my card today, I decided to not only use a couple of new 2013 Hero Arts stamps, I also wanted to try a new (to me) technique. I saw this on the Hero Arts blog awhile back. Julie Ebersole shared a card and video with this fun technique. She used it on the sentiment of her card here. 

I decided to use the same technique on the whole Number Pattern background cling stamp. 

I colored the entire stamp with a Scattered Straw Distress Marker, then tapped/pounced a Wild Honey marker all over, on top of the lighter color. Love the way it turned out! Here's a close-up.

I'm saving this card for my Hubby's birthday in March! I think he'll like it.

Thanks for coming by! I hope this new year brings lots of crafty fun for all of us! :)
