Tone-on-tone with Hero Hues

While having fun with solid background I revisited my background stamps and reviewed my Hero Arts inks. I indulged myself with the gorgeous colors and tone-on-tone technique!
The complete card set I made this afternoon based on Hero Arts sketch challenge. I found these cute little Dutch sentiments at the stamping event yesterday and I hoped they would fit the different die-cuts. And they fitted perfectly!
Left card: "birthday". HA inks: pool and stonewash. Stamps: zig zag background, antique engravings shells
Right card: "get well soon". HA inks: soft leaf and forever green. Stamps: daisy outline pattern (S5472. Sorry, I could find no link to this stamp) and the strawberry from engraved fruits.
After I saw Shari's technique video, I colored the shells and strawberries with water soluble  oil pastels.
Left card: "strength". HA inks: soft sand and cup o' joe. Stamps: lace background, butterfly die cut from playful flowers and butterflies.
Right card: "today is your day". HA inks: soft blossom and red royal. Stamps: large flower background. little flower from playful flowers and butterflies. I cut out the large blossom by hand and glued it on the inside of the card, in the lower right corner.

even the littlest comment is greatly appreciated!

Just love seeing this set of wonderful cards, Linda! Our HA backgrounds are so versatile, but they are generally not used this way - love your idea!
