I'm so happy I get to share in the fun today for this collaboration between Hero Arts and Pinkfresh Studio. This is such a gorgeous stamp set with awesome uplifting and positive messages!
For my card I decided to pull out lots of Hero Arts Reactive Inks and make a pretty rainbow background. I simply swiped each color of ink onto my craft mat, then used a water brush to create stripes of color across a watercolor panel. I used a generous amount of water to get the colors to blend seamlessly and then let it dry while I worked on the sentiment portion of the card.
I chose to include three messages from the set that I think all work together very nicely. I white heat embossed each of them onto Pebble Cardstock and trimmed them all the same length.
Once my watercolor panel was dry, I white heat embossed the floral frame image over the top and then adhered it to a Dove White Top Folding Card.
Finally, I wanted my sentiment strips to stand out a little more, so I cut a strip of vellum with banner tails and then adhered the sentiments on top. It's little touches like this that I think can really make a card feel complete.
