Hi there! Cha here with another card for our current card challenge that is Watercolor. I hope you are enjoying this challenge as much as I am and I invite you to join us before it comes to an end in a few days. For some inspiration, I will be using some Hero Arts Glimmer Metallic inks for creating my card for today’s post.
First, I picked a piece of watercolor paper in which I stamped the Hero Arts Crafting Tools Bold Prints with Versafine Onyx Black Ink and heat embossed with Hero Arts Ultra Fine Embossing Powder. I had first applied an Anti-static powder tool so that no particles of powder adhere to where I did not want to.
Then, I colored the piece with Hero Arts Glimmer Metallic Inks mixing the colors in between. I used Blue Glimmer Metallic, Red Glimmer Metallic, Pewter, and Gold Glimmer Metallic. I let this background dry for a while.
I created the sentiment by stamping one of the phrases from the Hero Arts Crafty Messages Stamp Set. I placed a piece of Hero Arts Mustard Premium Cardstock in my Mini MISTI Stamping Tool and stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx black ink. I heat embossed with Hero Arts Ultra Fine Embossing Powder. Later, I fussy cut the sentiment.
I glued a piece of Hero Arts Pitch Black Premium Cardstock on top of a 4,25 by 5,5-inch white top folded card. Later, I trimmed the sides of the background that I had colored with glimmer inks and adhered to the top of the card base with adhesive foam tape. Finally, I added the sentiment with adhesive foam circles.
I wanted this card simple, so I just added a little bit of gold shimmer on the images with Nuvo Midas Touch Shimmer Pen.
And that’s it! I hope you like this card and feel inspired to create your own watercolor card and join us in this April challenge!
Thank you so much and see you soon!
