Hellllllooooo Friends, How was your weekend? I was lucky enough to see a beautiful bright double rainbow this weekend and it still resonates with me. #heavenly
As for today I am delighted to be participating in Hero Arts My Monthly July kit Blog Hop. I created four cards because I was having so much fun creating with the stamps in the kits.
I did film a video watercoloring this flower with Zigs and I promise to post it next week. My daughter moved to NY this weekend and I forgot how much work moving is lol. (If you don’t want to miss the video you can subscribe to my videos here)
The thing about watercoloring is … it doesn’t look good right away … mine doesn’t anyway. I keep telling myself to stick with it and eventually it comes together. Keep in mind if you don’t stamp a perfect background that’s ok in my book. Love this graphic new background stamp and I am super excited to color in all those squares for a completely different look. The background was stamped with HA pool ink.
The sentiment is one of my favorites but, I cut my stamp apart so that it better would fit better on my card with no damage to the stamp.
There are so many beautiful cards you can make with the two stamp sets in the kit but, when you are in the mood to create something fun and colorful you go for it. I started out stamping all the images with some grey ink .
When creating backgrounds with a few elements from this stamp set … in this case a few flowers … I like to go diagonal. These two particular cards were colored with some copic markers. On the background I used some various ink with a rag to get texture on my background.
The insides of the cards read … “i would pick you”
This is the kit and all I can say is wow! (If you are curios why I didn’t use those cool papers… or the die cuts or the distress oxide it’s because I didn’t have them at the time I was creating my cards). Sooo many possibilities with the Hero Arts Kits.
