To start with, I took one Hero Arts Snow White Folded Cards and covered the front panel with few stripes of painter’s tape. Then I took the first Hero Art Spray and poured a bit of it in a small cup and used it as watercolor with a flat paint brush .
I kept adding colors and colors , always pouring a bit of the sprays into a cup and then using the brush to add strokes of colors. I used different sizes of brushes to get different texture. As you will notice in the next photo, the color soaks into the paper and shows where the tape is. I added more color using a fine point paint brush to accentuate the border of the painter’s tape.
Then, when the colors were dry, I added a small coat of gesso to mute a bit the colors.
I grabbed the Hero Arts Pale Tomato Spray and added a big splash of color at the top of the card, then added water to make the color drips. I love doing this, I do not know why, but I just love drips! I also added some texture by using a stamp set. And…can I get your attention here? Do I have it? Ok. Listen, this is probably one of the most beautiful script stamp ever. I love it. The set contains more different types, I used the two showed in the pictures.
Since I was not happy enough with all the textures I added, I decided to add some more gesso to my background. To achieve this “messy result” I just grabbed a palette knife and added the gesso in a stroke motion (if that even makes sense? LOL – I’m Italian, please forgive me! But the photo should help !)
I slowly let it dry with the heat tool making sure that it was not bubbling. When everything was well dry all was left to do was to add some splashes here and there with black and white unicorn spray.
I glued my center piece in this order: tissue paper, old book page , the heart (to color this I just added sprays and water), a piece of lint and then the sentiment!
