Hero Arts Scramble on Flickr

Yesterday evening was another scramble at the Hero Arts Flickr group. I enjoy being part of that and to my big dismay I have missed the last two. For the people who are not familiar with this, the rules are: 

you have 90 minutes to create a card, 
you have to use at least one Hero Arts stamp or digi and 
you have to upload your creation within those 90 minutes onto the flickr website. 
Very straightforward. Give it a try next time!

Since 90 minutes is not that long I choose to go with watercolors - very forgiving technique....I stamped distress inks onto an acrylic bloc, misted it with water and pressed it onto watercolor paper. I then overstamped it with various plant stamps - all Hero arts. The second card I first clear embossed the poison ivy plant (it looks like one) before I did the other steps and doodled around the edges in the end. The sentiment is from an Impression Obsession set.

I hope you like it. Ah, I just remembered - Moxie Fab has a watercolor challenge going on - I will participate, why not...

I wish  you all an enjoyable weekend and thank you for all your support and nice comments. I just love reading them!

Huhu Cornelia!
Das sind endlich mal schöne Trauerkarten - auch für so einen Anlaß kann man gerne mal Farbe ins Spiel bringen. Toll!

Oh wow, you did all these in 90 minutes? BRAVO! What a wonderful set! Each and every one is unique and quite beautiful.

Lovely cards, Cornelia! Wish I could have joined in on the fun but I've had limited access to Internet this weekend and can't get on Flickr at all. Looking forward to seeing everyone's cards. :-). I may have to try that water colour trick. Looks fun.

I haven't heard about this challenge! Should give it a try. Sounds very interesting.
And your cards.. 90 minutes? Seriously? Amazing results!
