Although there are so many amazing products released, I would like to focus on just a few. I have six cards for you, but they are all clean and simple!
My first set features the new Urban Skyline Bold Prints and Abstract Skyline Bold Prints. I used my MISTI to get crisp stamped images.
For the first card, I inked up the background with the rainbow shades of Hero Arts inks and stamped it directly onto my white cardbase. I die-cut ‘HELLO’ using the Luggage Tag Alphabet Frame Cuts and gold glitter cardstock and mounted it to the base with foam tape.
For the second card, I stamped the image with waterproof black ink onto watercolor cardstock and colored loosely with the new Hero Arts Liquid Watercolors (all colors except Artprint Brown). I trimmed it to fit to a white cardbase and then added ‘HELLO’ again using Luggage Tag Alphabet Frame Cuts but in white cardstock instead.
For the third card, I stamped the image with Hero Arts Intense Black ink and added touches of yellow and gray coloring with Copic Markers. I trimmed the piece and added yellow and gray cardstock layers for a beautiful contrast. I usually add sentiments but thought to leave it as is since I liked the artistic look of it.
My next two cards use the new Flowering Magnolia stamp and coordinating frame cuts.
For the first card, I started by coloring with the new Liquid Watercolors, but for details, I decided to use Polychromos color pencils over it. The sentiment is from Color Layering Water Lilies.
For the second one, I colored with Copic Markers. The background was colored with the new Liquid Watercolors directly onto my white cardbase. If you use minimal water, it won’t seep through the cardbase (I used 110#). The sentiment is also from Color Layering Water Lilies.
My last card features the new Bookcase wood stamp. I created a super simple card. I stamped part of the image on my base with Hero Arts Intense black ink and added details with a gold pen and pink Copic marker. I added a strip of gold glitter cardstock and heat embossed the sentiment with gold embossing powder.
