Hi everyone, it’s Cheiron here with my monthly post for you. I have been playing around with a lot more “artsy” projects over the past few weeks. I also had the pleasure of picking up all of the new Hero Arts daubers…and I am more than thrilled with them. These daubers are great for coloring on solid stamps, making backgrounds and work fabulously with the new stencils.
When I was trying out the new stencils, I found a fun stencil and color combo that I liked so I thought I would share it with you today. To start, I cut a bunch of card front panels (4 x 5 1/4) from watercolor paper. First, I used the tweed pattern stencil with the wet cement and butter cup daubers. I colored randomly through the stencil with the daubers, starting with the lighter color first.
Not to waste ink, I turned the inky stencil over and pressed it into another panel to get the inky outline of the stencil itself. I kind of like the look of this pattern too. This would also be great as a collage card element. Here’s the paper with just the leftover ink:
I also added the ink from another stencil I was using (the Irregular Chipboard Background) that had Tide Pool dauber ink on it to give my panel another layer of interest. Much more muted, but a fun background for this card.
While I had all the supplies out, I made a bunch of these fun backgrounds so I have have them on hand to make a quick card when I need one. These daubers and stencils are addicting. I think I have about 20 backgrounds ready to go for future cards.
Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you get a chance to get your hands on some of these fun stencils and daubers!
