Good morning! It’s time for the second half of the A Blog Named Hero design team to share additional inspiration for our May challenge! This month is all about watercoloring with our collaboration company, Honeybee Stamps and here’s what I created!
I’ve always loved the Hero Arts Stamp Your Own Succulent set but really thought it needed some florals! 😉 And the Country Blooms set from Honeybee Stamps was just perfect! To start I stamped the floral arrangement from Country Blooms onto watercolor paper with versafine and heat-embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then I stamped it onto masking paper and fussy cut a mask. I laid the mask over the floral arrangement and then stamped the terrarium from the Hero Arts set over the arrangement. I also stamped a small succulent inside the terrarium with versafine and heat-embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then I watercolored the image using my zig clean color real brush markers and a damp paintbrush. I like to apply a line of color to the edge of the stamp and then blend it out with the paintbrush. While it was drying I stamped the sentiment onto black cardstock with versamark and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder.
Finally I trimmed my watercolor panel down, adhered it to a black card base, and added the sentiment with foam mounting tape! CAS and I think those two sets work PERFECTLY together! 🙂
Thanks so much for visiting and have a wonderful day! 🙂
