Hero Arts July Kit

I was so excited when my parcel arrived from Hero Arts last week and couldn't wait to ink up the images. I love lavender and was very eager to stamp up this image first. After stamping and masking up the images, I added a masked border to two sides of the card and lightly sponged with the Distress Oxide ink that was included in the July kit. The rest of the images were coloured with my Zig Clean Colour markers. Love all the fun containers and bunches of flowers in the kit. I'll be stamping some more real soon!! Thanks for dropping by!

Florals challenge

Did someone say 'Florals'? Most of my favourite stamps have some variety of flowers. I decided to combine a Winnie and Walter stampset with sentiment from Hero Arts for the current A Blog named Hero Florals challenge. I inked up an acrylic block with some Distress Inks, spritzed with some water and invert it over a watercolour card. I tried several times before I perfected the technique. I had drips from the block, not enough water, ink oozing out the side (I tried wiping it and created a mess on the white space)... I was happy to finally see this card finished. Thanks for dropping by!

Altenew July Inspiration

I have a card to share based on the colours of the current July Inspiration Challenge from Altenew and the current sketch on CAS(E) this sketch. For the background, I used strips of the patterned paper from  Echo Park mounted on dimensional tape. The flower and leaves were stamped on white carsick and then fussy cut. I only managed one completed card this weekend! Thanks for dropping by!

Blue Hydrangeas

After seeing a few blue cards posted recently, I was inspired to do one as well. This card was made with Distress Inks on water colour card. I wanted to colour in the negative space as there is a fair bit of detailing on the stamp which I wanted to leave untouched. I've also inlaid a die cut from Winnie and Walter. I'm adding this card to the current A Blog Named Hero Florals challenge with Winnie & Walter. Thanks for dropping by!
