Hi everyone, it’s Caren and it is my first solo post on A Blog Named Hero. I’m so excited to join the team. I’ve been a fan of Hero Arts for about 20 years. They have been a company who I’ve consistently looked to over the years.
For my card today, I’m featuring the two fish stamps from the Fishy Stamp and Die set.
I started by stamping, coloring, and die cutting out the fishes from the Fishy Stamp and Die set. For my background, I used distress ink with the Wave Stencil on a piece of white card stock. I used the stencil with a darker blue ink first. Then I used a lighter shade of blue ink to cover the entire panel without the stencil. This cuts down on the stark whiteness of the card stock.
I then heat embossed the sentiment from the same stamp set with white embossing powder on a piece of black card stock. I then back the black card stock with a piece of orange paper that matches my colored fish. I assembled the card and used foam adhesive to adhere the fish to the panel.
This was a fun card to make and I think it is versatile enough to be given to a guy or girl. Don’t forget to join in on this month’s challenge for Clean and Simple cards. I think this card would qualify, how about you? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stamping!
