Hero Arts Paper Layering Neighborhood Dies
Hero Arts just put out their 2018 Season of Winter catalog, and I found plenty I wanted, but first on my list was Hero Arts Paper Layering Neighborhood dies. I decided I wanted to play in the current challenge on A Blog Named Hero, Sparkle and Shine. Lookie:
GOJUS! All of those windows cut out, so you can just cut a solid piece with the outline die to layer behind it. I tried plain yellow, and it was just too meh for me.
I tried a couple of different things, and I finally used one of the neighborhood pieces that I got ink on to color through the windows onto some watercolor paper that I cut out with the outline using Derwent Inktense pencils. After that, I used a water brush to spread the color around and also added some Wink of Stella clear to make them glittery.
I stamped the Figure Eights stamp using Hero Arts Unicorn White ink on Bazzill Bluebery SOur cardstock and used a stamp from the new Hero Arts Winter Holiday Messages. I skimmed the edges of this with Wink of Stella White to give a little distress feel to the edge. For the final touch, I added some Stampendous Class A Peels Silver Stars to the sky.
It’s so beautiful and makes me feel like it’s snowing which, on a day when it is sunny, humid, and HOT here in Michigan, is very welcome. I am SO ready for autumn (Christmas can be further off though!) I think I could crank out lots of cards fairly quickly using Hero Arts Paper Layering Neighborhood die!
