Today I'm sharing some floral cards I made using some new Hero Arts products. I experimented with a few different techniques using the new Daubers and stamps from the Stamp your Story lines.
Here's the lineup of products I used from Hero Arts today:
Here's the trio of cards that I created. I used basically the same products on each card but each one turned out with totally different looks.
Let's take a look at the different techniques I used. On this first card I created a background on the base card using the floral stencil and a very dry paint brush. I dabbed the Dauber colors onto my paint try and just painted over the stencil. For the main floral image I applied the Dauber colors directly to the stamps. You can see below that the Dauber colors are deeply saturated with color and are very vibrant. I splattered some of the Dauber colors on with my paint brush along with some white spray ink. I finished off the card with a stamped sentiment + some typewriter words. Enamel dots and a few sequins from my Neutral Sequin Collection are the finishing touches.
Here's the paint palette I created using an enamel tray and the Daubers. You can in the bottom corners how the Daubers go onto the tray (the small saturated circles of color). By using my paint brush and clean water I was able to lighten the colors up thus giving me a more muted color palette to work with.
Here's what my floral image looked like when first stamped. I applied the Dauber ink to my stamp using my paint brush and watered down inks from my palette. You'll notice that pooling of color sometimes happens. You can leave this to try if you want that dark color. I usually let it set for a bit then use a paper towel to soak up the color.
Here's the finished look when all the ink is dry. I added more splatters of the Daubers by using my paint brush and a flick of the wrist. The white splatters are from a spray mist.
A very fun day of experimenting to just see what happens. I give the new Hero Arts products a two thumbs up rating. :) Thank you for stopping by today.
This Summer is keeping us hopping with sporting events and things we want to check off of our Summer Bucket List. So don't worry if you see some time in between posts. I'm just busy livin' life.
