Asian inspired birthday

My oldest Owen has been home all week with a mystery virus, of just high fever and all over body aches. They said it just has to run it's course, and thankfully today he woke up with no fever, so I am just praying it doesn't spread to the rest of us! Today since he is still banned from school due to the 24 hour w/o fever rule, he has been enjoying the day playing and feeling better! While we were outside letting our birds out this a.m., we found a little time to work in the office. I made this card for the Hero Arts monthly contest: Birthdays, Dads and Grads. I decided to pull out some older hero arts stamps, I stamped them then trimmed into smaller squares. The images are colored with copics YG93, 95 , B91 and 93 and copic spica in clear for the dragonfly wings. The background is stamped in versamark with a bamboo image stamp, and the sentiment is stamped directly on the cardstock.


  1. Oh I just love these shades of blue and green together and what a great center image! also like the subtle background!

  2. I've never seen these Hero Arts stamps before, Ivy! I love them! This card is beautiful! Your Copic coloring is fantastic! Love it! :)
