This is Zoey , your new Italian bff! Today I am here to show you how I created a card for a friend.
For the base of my card I used Hero Arts Watercolor Paper PS626. I just love the textured of this paper – and it is perfect for the watercolor technique I am about to show you! (I know many of you might know this technique already! lol!)
So I cut my front panel of the card…and then I cut few pieces of an old book page, I adhered the pieces to the paper and then I distressed it a bit.
And now to the fun part!
I grabbed my Hero Arts Purple Neon Spray WM108 and also my Hero Arts Butter Bar Spray WM112 – as you know these two are usually used as Spray, but today we will use them to create a watercolor effect for our background! Just simply mist the spray over a craft Sheet (or anything that will not stick !) , I then added some more water and I simply placed the card over the colors, I let it sit for few seconds and then I picked the piece up.
That was the result…and I loved it at the first try!
When it was COMPLETELY dry (and really, make sure it is very well dried!!) I added some Studio 490 Wendy Vecchi White Embossing Paste through this wonderful Hero Arts Large Lotus Pattern Stencil SA001
I let the paste dry alone, but in case you want to speed up the process you can use the heat tool — just make sure to move the heat tool around to prevent bubbles!
Last thing I did was stamping the sentiment with Hero Arts India Ink Black AF248 and adding some lines with a black gel pen to border my background.
And that is the final result – what do you think about it?
I hope you will give it a try and use your spray mist in a different way!
