Hero Arts Color Layering Monarch Inlaid Die Cut

Howdy! I am here today with some shimmery butterflies. Oh wait that was last month. How about a birthday card for you!

Hero Arts Color Layering Monarch Clear Stamp

When I thought about making this card the inlay technique and using some of the Hero Arts Glimmer Metallic Ink came to mind. So here we are.

For the butterflies I put some drops of the purple and the blue Hero Arts Glimmer Metallic Ink on a kraft sheet along with a tiny bit of gold. I spritzed the inks with water. I brushed the ink on paper and let it dry. Then I stamped the Hero Arts Color Layering Monarch on the metallic inks using just the detailed layer. I cut those out with the Hero Arts Color Layering Monarch matching die. Two butterflies were cut out of the white background paper so that I could inlay the purple and blue butterflies in those spaces. I just love the shimmery look of the metallic ink. The purple and blue come together in the pack.

For the flowers I mixed a little gold Glimmer Metallic ink with some Hero Arts Dandelion and Orange Liquid Watercolors. I painted that on paper and when it dried I stamped the flowers from the Color Layering Monarch stamp set. Then they were die cut.

The sentiment was die cut.

A Special Birthday with Hero Arts

Hello! For our challenge this month we have a nice theme going on and that would be birthday. I enjoyed working with the digital images recently and I really wanted to use one of the sentiments from the Hero Arts Special Day digital kit.  Here is how I used it.

I started with the background. I put down three colors of Hero Arts reactive ink and let that dry. Then I dropped some Hero Arts Gold Glimmer Metallic Ink on my craft mat. I watered that down and painted it over my panel. Here is another look where you can see the shimmer more. In real life it looks very nice and shimmery. That Glimmer Metallic Ink is pretty cool stuff. The a2z Scrapbooking Etsy shop has 2 different sets in the shop. One has Copper and Bronze in it and the other has Purple and Blue in it.

I let the panel dry. I took one of the balloons from the Hero Arts Birthday Bash digital kit and sized it, tilted the balloons and copy and pasted to make the background pattern. I printed the balloons on that painted/inked sheet of paper.

For the sentiment I inked up some paper with one of the reactive inks I used on the background. After the ink dried I printed the sized sentiment on that. The I cut around the sentiment using a die.

I put a couple mats/panels under the main panel. I also have fun foam under the painted/inked panel and the sentiment to add a little dimension.
