Hi readers! Happy Monday to you! I hope your week is starting off wonderfully! Today I’m so pleased to be back with guest designer Yana Smakula who made a gorgeous card using some brand new Hero Arts products as well as some great existing product! Let’s have a look!
Hi everyone! With Spring being just around the corner I thought it would be fun to do some simple watercolor stamping. And to be honest I was itching to play with my new Hero Arts and BasicGrey stamps for quite some time so this seemed like a perfect occasion!
I inked a large waves background stamp using several colors of Hero Arts daubers – I went with brights and neons; added water with the help of a mini mister and stamped it onto a piece of Hero Arts snow white paper. To somehow frame this piece I added machine stitching, I intentionally stayed away from straight lines – I tried to make my stitching look like the stamped waves.
I also stamped and heat embossed several images from the Set Sail set in gold embossing powder onto vellum. I cut them out using my scissors and used them as embellishments for my card.
I layered the steering wheel and added the Enjoy The Journey sentiment from the Set Sail stamp set on top using foam adhesive for a bit of dimension. The sentiment was heat embossed on pool paper from Hero Arts.
I also added a few other heat embossed images and several gold gems onto my stamped panel. To finish my card I used foam squares and adhered my panel onto an A2 top folding card base which I made using Hero Arts Pool layering paper.
Thank you so much joining me today! And big thanks to Simon Says Stamp for inviting me! Have a great day! Hugs!
