Hero Arts My Monthly Hero January 2020

Howdy! I am playing along with Hero Arts.

The theme this week is create a card inspired by something in your home.

Hero Arts Designer Woodgrain

To make my card I started with a thick piece of kraft paper. I stamped a woodgrain pattern on it with white pigment ink. Then I cut it out using a die.

The watering can was stamped with white pigment ink also and then die cut. The watering can was attached with very thick pop dots so it sits up off the background. The flowers were die cut. Then I sponged on some white pigment ink along with some yellow pigment ink. I used a Copic pen to highlight the flower petal edges. I also used some chalk ink around the edges of the flowers in a kraft color.

For the sentiment I put an ink pad direct to paper and then die cut it two times. I glued those together for some dimension.

The colors on my card in real life are lighter than the photo.  I took another photo in the daylight and this much closer to the true color.

  1. Very pretty, both your card and the wall hanging. Wow what a big difference between the two photos of your card; the daylight really show the true colors.
