This morning I found a very pleasant news for me. Yay!! I won a giveaway from Hero Arts. I joined the challenge to make a card with Color Layering Stamp Sets. I luckily just got my newest stamp set: Hibiscus. I think you remember the card I made. It's here. I won US$ 25 shopping spree.. So happy me. It's so rare for me to win anything from Hero Arts. Hehehe... You can see the announcement in Instagram here.
To appreciate the winning, I made a card using this stamp set again. In this card, I used Hero Arts stamps only. The French writing and the big sentiments were the old collections. Before everything was stamped, I brushed the white card stock with DI Tumbled Glass with Koi water brush. Then I dried the paper with the heat gun.
Th closer look on the flowers. I colored the stamps with Kuretake Color Real Brush. To make the color vibrant, I colored the stamped image with the same color. I enjoyed this technique as I felt better in mind. I felt at ease.. :D
However, before the card above, I used the flowers to make the card below. I really wanted to use splotches, But I didn't like the result. It looks too common and I didn't like the flower arrangement.
I hope you enjoy those two cards. I will surely enjoy that gift from Hero Arts. I think I will use it to get the Color Layering Bird. I will surely love it.
