Good morning and Happy Friday! We made it through another week!! 😉
Today I wanted to share another card using the brand new 45th anniversary release from Hero Arts and let you know about a fabulous 20% off Hero Arts sale going on right now over at Simon Says Stamp so you can stock up on all the new release goodies!
Here are some of my Hero Arts must-haves in case you need some ideas! 🙂
And here’s what I created using the From the Vault Real Poppy wood-mounted rubber stamp!
I love using generation stamping to get different contrast and shading with a single stamp! For the background I scribbled over the stamp with two red and two green tombow markers, spritzed them once with water and then pressed them to watercolor paper. I held them in place for a few seconds to give the ink time to soak in and then lifted the stamp. Without cleaning off the stamp I pressed it to the paper again. This time, when I lifted the stamp, I had a lighter impression. I stamped some of the flowers off the panel to give more interest to a simple design. Then I scribbled the same red markers on an acrylic block, added a bit of water, and splattered the ink across the panel.
While the background dried I stamped the sentiment from From the Vault Flowers onto pitch black cardstock with versamark and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder. I trimmed it down to a thin label and adhered it to the panel with foam mounting tape to finish the card!
Thanks so much for visiting and I hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend! Don’t forget to check out the awesome sale at Simon Says Stamp that includes all Hero Arts-branded products including the new release!!
