July My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #6 + Giveaway!
We are back with another look at the July My Monthly Hero release! The kit will be available on Monday, July 3 at 1pm Eastern/10am Pacific. We’ll be sharing ideas for using the main kit and the optional add-on products all weekend long, so stay tuned for more inspiration! Now let’s join Yana, who is sharing another look at the main kit, available tomorrow!
Whenever I spy small images in my stamp sets I try to use them to create my own unique looking pattern, so this is what I did for a card I’m sharing today.
I started working on this card by stamping a number of pea pods in black ink onto watercolor paper. I made sure to rotate my image every time I made an impression to create a dynamic and diverse pattern for my card.
Next, I watercolored my images using Daniel Smith watercolors. I first diluted my green and added a lighter wash of color to the images, later came in and added slightly darker shaded areas to make my images look dimensional. I did the same thing to color the flowers – first diluted pink and later came in with a darker pink to add shading.
I trimmed my panel to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 inches and adhered it onto an A2 top folding card base made out of white cardstock. I also heat embossed “Hello Sweet Pea” sentiment in white embossing powder onto black cardstock, trimmed into a strip and foam mounted onto my card. Lastly, I added several black accents to tie everything together.
