You Color My World

April 12, 2013

Hello everyone! Today I have a card up on A Blog Named Hero. We are celebrating our 1st birthday over there and we have been collaborating with some wonderful and most generous companies. This week is the company that started it all HERO ARTS!!!

I cannot say enough good things about this company. They are generous beyond measure, they are GREEN, they have one of the most talented design teams in the industry and if were not for Hero Arts I would not have met so many of my truly wonderful friends. They are more than a company...they are a community. I adore them to pieces.

When it came to making a card for them it was a no brainer....

They TRULY "Color My World"
I started by taking a piece of water color paper, stamping it with Versamark and then heat embossing it with Hero Arts White embossing powder, it is truly the whitest white out there for embossing powders. I then used my foam tools to apply the Distress inks in a rainbow spray from corner to corner. When I was done I spritzed it HEAVILY with Perfect Pearls. I let the colors bleed into one another then air dried it. 

Here is a close up of all that shimmery goodness. It's so bold and vibrant in real life. Just makes me smile.

Here is a close up of that delicious flower. I followed the same steps above on water color paper. The only difference on this one is a used some metallic watercolor paints for the center to make it shimmer more.

I also would like to give a HUGE shout out to Simon Says Stamp! If it were not for the generosity of Heidi we would not be able to offer you the chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate every challenge. She too is amazingly generous and I am so grateful that I can help promote her and her business. She does so much to encourage stampers in this industry.  She also carries the ENTIRE LINE of Hero Arts Stamps!!!  A big huge THANK YOU to HEIDI.  We love:

Please stop by A Blog Named Hero to see what the other girls created. I know you won't be disappointed.

Until Monday.....
