It’s Barb here today sharing a card using our Challenge Theme for this month, ‘Water Coloring’! I consider myself a ‘Clean & Simple’ card maker, so water coloring has been known to instill panic in me when I venture too far…in fact, I took the online card class that was offered a few months ago, and I am now on my second package of Hero Arts water color paper with very little to show for it – Ha! Oh well, it’s all about experimenting, right?
Here is my card;
Please excuse the darkness of this photo. We have had overcast skies for the past few days and I had to use my light box to take this photo.
I stamped the butterfly with black ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then, I applied my soft blue water colors, and die cut the butterfly and oval aperture. After I stamped the sentiment in Soft Granite ink, I mounted the front panel and added silver stars and gems. And, that was it…Clean & Simple water coloring!
I hope my card inspires you to take out your water colors and inks and try something new with your Hero Arts stamps or stencils!
