Here’s some more information on the creative process from the artist herself:
This card was super simple, but tons of fun to make. I love the gradient/ombré
look that is so popular right now and thought it would be fun to
recreate it with an awesome background stamp from Hero Arts. I used the
Hexagon Background, but this would look great with a chevron background
as well! To get a seamless look between colors, I experimented with
several different inks until I found three that blended perfectly. In
this case, I wanted a teal-ish color palate, so I used Hero Arts Soft Pool Shadow Ink, Hero Arts Tide Pool Mid-Tone Shadow Ink and Tim Holtz
Distress Ink in Evergreen Bough. Then I carefully inked the stamp, being
sure to start with the lightest ink and work to the darkest.
I wanted the background stamp to be the focal point of this card, so
I kept everything else pretty simple. I picked a birthday message from
the new Hero Arts Set “It’s Your Day” and stamped that on the large
banner die from Simon Says Stamp. I forgot how awesome that banner die
is! It sets your sentiment apart and works perfectly with nearly any
style of card. Because I am going to be mailing this card, I used
adhesive to make the banner nearly one dimensional. Then, I finished off
the card with some pearls and gems! For all the details, you can check
out the quick video I shot of the process. I highlight one of my
favorite tools that is currently available in the Simon Says Stamp
