Hero Arts/Altenew – Partners Collaboration – Bloom & Grow + Giveaway

Hi, Friends!

The wonderful collaborations between Hero Arts and other great companies in the industry continue as we celebrate Hero Arts’ 45th Anniversary.

The teams are sharing projects using the new Bloom & Grow stamp set – it’s a large floral set that is fun to color for those who like a lot of space to work with.

Since the image is so big, I decided to go with a larger canvas for my card today. The finished card size (not including the foliage overhang), is 5″x7″. I started by stamping my images with a light ink to no-line watercolor.

I was traveling when I watercolored this over the weekend and unfortunately, did not write the color names down. But I only used two so you can definitely create a lot of depth and dimension with one color depending on how dark you start and how much you blend. After coloring, I fussy cut my images – which is easy to do because the images are so large.

The background is a light gray/brown cardstock that I ink-blended with Taffy and Sea Salt Reactive Ink. The flower is adhered with foam adhesive and I added the leaves before adhering it over the ink-blended panel. Then I stamped my sentiment, covered it with some scrap cardstock and splattered the panel with white ink. To complete my card, I added some clear, opaque and iridescent sequins from the Icicle and Winter mixes.
