Hero Arts STAMPtember Set is Live

Hi everyone!
I am back today with a card using special collaboration stamp set!!! Yes...the Hero Arts STAMPtember set! I LOVE LOVE LOVE all the flower silhouettes in this set!

Grab your set while supplies last, because these are limited editions and once they are gone, they are gone for good. This is a 4x6 set and it's amazing.

I decided to make bunch of cards featuring some ink blending using reactive inks and then stamping either in black or watermark ink then embossing. For the cards where I stamped in black, I first stamped using Sea Salt reactive ink, then moved my panel a little bit (I used MISTI) then stamped using Intense-fied black ink.
