Hero Arts Debut 2011

This week at Allsorts it's my turn to host the theme and as the challenge is going to run for two weeks I am making life really simple with the theme 'Free and Easy'. So you could enter now and then again making something with those new Christmas goodies Santa brings you.

I am sharing yet another easel card using the the lovely Sweet Pea Poinsettia Fairy.....she's still my favourite of all those I own......more masking, boring I know, but this time a sun.....makes a change from a moon (tutorial link on sidebar) and coloured with Copics, the wings glittered and decoupages along with the flowers. The frame is a Spellbinder die, the lace, MS punched border and punched vellum flowers. The DP is Cosmo Cricket DP (I think). This card is also for the following challenges:

In a Sweet Pea Dream - Anything sweet pea
Sweet Pea Stamps - Anything goes

And one more really, really quick share and preview of the new Hero 2011 Debut collection that will be available to purchase at the special launch day at Sir Stampalot tomorrow. Full details below or on their web site.

Lots more ideas in the making, but this was as far as I got this afternoon and of course it was dark by the time I came to take my picture, so the colours are not great. Stamps used here are Hero Aerts K5503 Bird Collage and CL477 Delicate Leaf Clusters, plus, TH rusty hinge, Cosmo Cricket DP, sentiment Personal Impressions PICS033, Aquamarkers, Versamark frost and Glimmer Mist pearl
