Ombré Hydrangea

I love the variety of inks that Hero Arts offers. It’s so fun to see the transformation of the Color Layering images. Today’s card is a good example of unexpected color combinations.

Good morning! Jess here with a card using one of the add-on sets from this month’s My Monthly Hero kit, Produce and Seeds, along with the beautiful Artistic Dahlia wood mount stamp.

Today I’m sharing a card which features beautiful dies from the 2017 Hero Arts Catalog – the Paper Layering Hummingbird Pair. I used just one of the pair. I die cut the bird, and then colored with my Copic makers. I love the dimension you can get with paper layering dies, in this case by […]

Recently I’m really into coloring with colored pencils. For today’s coloring project, I used the Antique Rose stamp which is a great stamp as it has large petals to color. It also includes some shading so it makes my guess work for shading easier. When you use colored pencils, it’s good to start with light […]

Birthday Wreath

Birthday Wreath

March 13, 2017

I often find that certain stamps I pass over quickly become one of my favorites to use. Such is the case with the Antique Bee and Flowers. I'm not sure if it's just that it's a woodblock stamp, and because I store mine in drawers, they end up being rather "out of sight, out of mind." In any case, when I did take it out to play, I had some fun.
