Hi, friends, I just got the Hero Arts Classic Numbers dies that are featured in the Winter Hero Arts catalog and I’ve been playing around with them ever since. And now I have some numbers floating about the house where I’ve been die cutting, including the kitchen floor, living room carpet and on my leg 🙂
Here’s my first card. I die cut the numbers from the white card stock and then plugged the green metallic cardstock numbers into the die cut area for a masculine birthday card. Of course, I added way too many glitter enamel dots, but I think they look festive! (I had to photograph this in an odd light to get the shine on the green to show up.)
On this card, I used washi tape that wasn’t too sticky, to portion off part of the card before I inked it up. I used the Bold Inks and looovve the bright colors. Then I adhered the white numbers and added black pearls. I applied the Hybrid Bold Inks with makeup sponges.
And here’s a very streamlined version without the colors, and without the metallic cardstock for an 18th birthday. Although it’s an interesting concept, it’s just not sparkly enough for me…although a clear Wink of Stella marker could add sparkle without any color.
