Love this 2011 HA stamp!

Happy Saturday, my friends! I just had to share this new 2011 Hero Arts stamp that is turning out to be an unexpected fav of mine. Meet Flower Text (S5506):
Here's my card:

Stamping was done with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Copic Express paper (LOVE THAT PAPER!). The flowers were colored with Copics and then lightly distressed with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink.
Thanks for popping by the lil' old blog-o! Hope you have a restful and creative weekend! HUGS!

Jill,
I'll be honest. I never would have picked up this stamp at the store. I would have looked at it and scratched my head.

But naturally...you stamped something amazing with it! This card is so adorable.

I really will be looking at stamps in a whole new light! I love it.

Love the colors, the layout and your distressing is breath taking. Seriously. You have a great touch with that stuff.

I so enjoy coming to your blog!
