Hi all. Dawn here with my first post as a designer for A2Z Scrapbooking. I am super excited to be here and hope over the course of my time here, I inspire you. Hero Arts products were amongst the first I used when I started stamping years ago.
This month our challenge is nice and easy.. “Anything Goes” I am still waiting for my new Hero Arts goodies to arrive so I’m inspiring you with some older Hero Arts stamps mixed with some newer items too.
I started by trying a monoprint technique with my stencil (Leaf and Flourish) I added Wild Honey, Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserves directly to the stencil, spritz with water and then press onto the watercolour paper. Blotted with a cloth to take off the excess watery bits. Once it dried, I stamped it with the Post Card background and the sentiment from an older Hero Arts set. Next was to cut a branch with Spring Branch die. I then stamped the birds. I coloured these with Distress Markers (Barn Door, Wild Honey and Seedless Preserves) and fussy cut them
Added a few sequins and popped it up onto the pink card base that was embossed with Swiss Dot folder.
I encourage you to pull out your old Hero Arts stamps and give them some love, while you are waiting for your new goodies to arrive!
