Hero Artisan Cards: Part 1, with Maresa

When Gina and I went to San Fransisco to the Hero Arts educational weekend, we learned so much that I can't possibly fit all the fun into one class! I will be offering several classes, over the next couple of months, jam-packed with uses for the fabulous Hero Arts stamps, papers and embellishments.

Our first installment includes four cards that will feature resist, background and watercolour techniques.

These cards have been designed especially for the men in your life. Do you need a card for Father's Day, or hubby's birthday? These cards are non-specific so that you can customize them for any occasion necessary.

Beautiful, rich colours, amazing paper from Graphic 45, digital, print, and stamped images lend a "manly" feel to these creations.
