Hero Arts Flickr Group reaches 30,000 uploads!

Hero Arts announced on Friday that the FLICKR Group had nearly reached 30,000 uploads since March 2008.  So to celebrate nearly reaching the 30,000 project milestone they decided to have a giveaway - those people at Hero Arts are just AMAZING.

Here is my entry for the chance to win!. 
I used a digital image from Hero Arts called Poetic Petals.  I left it uncoloured and added a digital image from the Hero Arts Winged Friends digital kit which I coloured with a copic ciao.  I cut brown cardstock for my base, embossed red cardstock with a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder - stylized flowers.  I then added ribbon and machine stitched around the edges including over the ribbon.  Used Quickutz circles and Spellbinders Scalloped Circles Large for the matting and layering.

I used glossy accents on the "winged friend's" body and used Jennifer McGuire's technique of putting some thread into the glossy accents for the antenna.

I hope you will visit the Hero Arts Flickr Group - it is chock full of inspiration and an amazing group of friends.  Thanks so much for stopping by - hope you have a wonderful week.
