I shared this bright and cheery card on the Hero Arts blog this weekend:
And today I’m sharing a card mixing some older Hero Arts sets to try and create a more traditional cherry blossom scene!
I also have a video for this card that you can watch below or over at my Youtube channel:
To start I inked mountains from the July 2019 My Monthly Hero kit (that are now available as the Color Layering Mountains at the Lake set) with Soft Granite and Charcoal ink. I used a baby wipe to blot some of the ink off the bottom of the stamp before stamping it on my A2 panel. Then I blended Soft Granite and Charcoal ink over the panel to blend in the bottom of the mountains. I dried the ink with my heat gun and then stamped the top layer of the mountains with Unicorn White Pigment ink and Embossing ink. On the Embossing ink I carefully sprinkled white embossing powder and heat-embossed it for a little variation in texture.
Next I blended Cotton Candy and Rose Madder ink across the top of the panel blending it down to the grey mountains. Then I stamped the bottom layer of the blossoms with Cotton Candy Ink and the top layer with Rose Madder and Red Royal ink. I stamped the loose blossoms with Cotton Candy and Rose Madder ink and finished it with a sentiment stamped in Intense-ified Black ink! I love the traditional paintings of Mount Fuji in the distance with a blossoming cherry tree in the foreground and thought this would be a good way to recreate that feel! 🙂
