Hey everyone…weekend’s gone so quick, but I found time to play with some Hero Arts products and made a card to enter into the Hero Arts – Stamp Your Story Inspiration Challenge!

Here’s my card:

This didn’t take me too long to prepare, once I got the idea in my head – I grabbed some watercolour paper, and spritzed it liberally with some Perfect Pearls water mist (home made, of course), until it was damp to the touch. I used this inspiration photo as my colour combo and stamped one of the shorter brush stroke images from Hero Arts AC026 Brush Strokes stamp set with Distress Inks.

Because the paper was damp it meant the Distress Inks bled a little, which was sort of the look I was going for…Once the panel had dried, I stamped a sentiment from the Kaisercraft Texture Birthday set with Versamark and sprinkled over some black embossing powder. I heat embossed, trimmed the panel down and foam mounted to a kraft card base. I finished by drawing a border around the inked area.

Thanks for looking!
