Love You Much, Jennifer McGuire, Hero Arts, and SU!

I met Jennifer McGuire IRL! I took her Color My World class in September. We played with various Hero Arts stamps, Tim Holtz inks and dies, and we tried 7 different techniques for inking/coloring. The eighth card was a kraft card stamped with these Hero Arts flowers and background stamp. Jennifer asked us to color the flowers at home with Prismacolor pencils.

Obviously I had to buy those two Hero Arts stamps, but I used a SU! sentiment. Jennifer rocks CAS (clean and simple), don't you think? I think this may be the first "no layers" card that I have made this century! CAS does not necessarily mean "quick"...this took me 1+ episodes of Glee to color, but very therapeutic. I love to color but I have not used my colored pencils in years. How fun! I hope you are inspired to get your colored pencils out too :)

Ah, you caved. :) I loved coloring the card when I got home, but I didn't get the stamps. I did use my SU colored pencils, and they worked just fine! I should use them more.

oh my sweet Junebug, this is wonderful! Just want you to know that if I were to meet YOU IRL, I'd be just as excited as you were to meet Jennifer!!! You're one of my heroines, in so many ways!! If I'd made this card, I would definitely send it to you! And that is NOT my way of fishing for receipt of a card, please know that! <3 =)
