The challenge for the beautiful month of May is
and our generous sponsor is
I sponged a piece of white cs with distress spun sugar and then stamped the flowers with HA intense black ink – it’s archival and thus great for watercoloring. Then I used my spun sugar distress pen and a little water to give the flowers a deeper tone of pink and distress pen in peeled paint for the stems. Also spattered some water drops. The piece was then die cut and mounted on a little larger piece of pink cs. I used my stamp positioner to line up the flowers again for the background on the white base. The “wishing” was die cut and the rest of the sentiment was stamped. I blocked off the “wishing” on the stamp with a piece of tape, inked it, removed the tape and stamped. I love this HA sentiment from the April My Monthly Hero kit because it can be used for various occasions. My first card for this blog was basically the same design, but I really like it and thought it worked well with this stamp.
Today I’m here with a card thats all-Hero Arts 🙂
I wanted to create something really clean and simple, as well as sticking with our theme of the month (Tone on Tone) but with a fun feel to it.
I stamped the dogs from the Lia Griffith Let’s Party stamp set, repeatedly across the strip of white cardstock. I then coloured all the dogs in varying Copic markers in the W1-W9 as I wanted them to be kind’ve tone on tone look, with just the little extras having colour.
I then added the sentiment.
This looks like a super simple card but it actually took ages! Taking into account all the colours and making sure all the dogs had different shades.
I hope you like it!!
Don’t forget about our challenge! 🙂
I’ll see you again soon!
So I made my own! It was actually a lot like making a card, just make your card front
While I’m here – Don’t forget this months challenge!! Gina K is sponsoring and the theme is Tone on Tone! I’ll be back later this month for my take on the challenge!
