Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge-Bright & Beautiful Featuring Hero Arts

For SSS Wednesday Challenge  I decided to start by choosing one of my newer Hero arts stamps-Arrows Background.  I actually started out using it as a background and then decided to cut my hearts out of it instead.  First I stamped the Arrows stamp with Versamark Ink and covered with Pink and Red embossing powders from Recollections.  Then I used Tim Holtz Distress Stains- Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick over the background- the embossing resisted the color leaving just the background paper colored this way.  Using Tim Holtz Movers and Shapers Hearts die- I cut 3 hearts from the background.

 I saved the negative piece to use in another card! For the actual background of this card I wanted something clean and simple.  Using Distress Markers (Worn Lipstick, Spun Sugar, and Festive Berries) I spritzed the background lightly (with Tim Holtz Marker Spritzer).  Really LOVE this effect.  The border was stamped using arrows from the Simon Says Stamp Feb Card Kit Watercolor Fantasy   HUGS & KISSES (a Hero Arts sentiment) was stamped in Versafine Black and heat embossed with SSS Clear Embossing Powder.

The card was finished off with a few embellishments and a little Wink of Stella of course!
