Hero Arts My Monthly Hero | June 2019 Card Kit | Part One | 4 Cards

Hello everyone,

I’m so excited to share the four cards I made using the Hero Arts June 2019 Card Kit. It’s been a little while since I got the Hero Arts Card Kit but when I saw this theme, I had to get it and make some cards. This is part one with four cards that I made, all featuring water-colored backgrounds.

For the first card, I created a night-time sky background using a rich purple and black watercolor ink. This was the perfect backdrop for the Elephant from the main kit with his friend the Monkey.

For the second card, I created a day-time sky background, this time using only one shade of blue. I wanted to create an ombre wash of color with this card, so I worked on creating a gradient of the same shade of blue.

For this card, I wanted to beautiful jungle sunset with rich yellow, orange and reds. I think that the Cheetah was a perfect addition to this background with a few jungle vines for a little interest.

And finally, for the last card, I did a little ink smooshing to create a very bright background. Again, using the Gansai Tambi Watercolors, I added several shades of blue to a scrap piece of acetate and smooshed it onto a piece of watercolor cardstock. For the border, I used the add-on Jungle Frame Fancy Die. After I die cut it, I added several shades of green to color in the border.

SugarPea Designs | Llama Just Say | Mirror Stamping |Friendship Card

Hello everyone,

I am so excited to be taking part in a video hop this week and share this super sweet llama friendship card I made.

SugarPea Llama Just Say

All of the participants in this hop made friendship theme projects to celebrate friendships and introduce you to other talented crafters. There are prizes along the way so be sure to follow along for your chance to win.

My card features a fun little scene I made using Gansai Tambi Watercolors to paint the sky with one shade of blue and paint the grass with a bright shade of green onto a watercolor panel.

I personally like to allow my watercolor panels to air dry and left this one to completely dry before I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment with Versafine Onyx black ink.

For this project I wanted the llamas to face each other and to achieve that I needed to mirror stamp one of the images of the llama.

Mirror stamping is a fun technique of stamping the original image onto a solid stamp then adding the cardstock on top thus stamping a mirror image of the original.

Both of the llamas were stamped onto Bristol smooth cardstock and colored in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.

MFT Roses All Over ~ Gansai Tambi Water colored ~ Celebrate Card

Hey everyone,

I’m starting the week off with this very bright and bold card as my entry for the My Favorite Things Sketch challenge that they host on their blog each week.

 

My Favorite Things Roses all over Background stamp colored with Gansai Tambi Watercolors with gold embossing handmade card.

 

Using My Favorite Things’ Roses All over background stamp, I stamped the image onto a piece of Canson XL Watercolor paper with VersaMark ink and heat embossed the image with Rangers Gold Super Fine embossing powder.

I knew I wanted to use watercolors on this card so I got my Gansai Tambi Watercolors out that I received for my birthday a couple of months ago.
Working on one rose at a time, I added a little water and added my color loosely on parts of the petals, taking care not to cover the entire rose. Then, using a waterbrush I dispersed a bit of water around the rose.
Continuing on, I colored each rose individually by adding color and adding water. The colors I used for this background were number 35 (Carmine red) and number 36 (Wine red).

My Favorite Things Roses all over Background stamp colored with Gansai Tambi Watercolors with gold embossing handmade card.

I die cut the panel using MFT’s Stitched Scallop Basic Edge die and I die cut a square out of the middle (keeping my fingers crossed that nothing goes wrong – whew!).
To put my card together, I adhered the water colored panel to a black cardstock base, added a mat and adhered the water colored square on top with some foam tape for added dimension.
To finish the card, I added a sentiment from My Favorite Things Pure Innocence Heart Bouquet stamp and cut it using My Favorite Things Stitched Sentiment Strip.
I really love using black, red and gold color combinations and I think this card turned out better than I envisioned in my head.

This is my completed card for the MFT Sketch Challenge and as always, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!
