Congrats Cranes


Happy Aloha Friday friends!  Have you seen our latest challenge?  It’s all about watercoloring and I’m a huge fan!  I’ve been meaning to play with the fun Hero Arts Origami Animals and decided to take out my Distress Inks and markers to create a background for my hanging cranes.

I love the combination of water color and heat embossing since it helps keep the watercoloring within the lines.  I think it looks pretty too when using metallic embossing powder like Hero Arts Silver Embossing powder.


The sentiment is from Hero Arts Cheers Messages by Lia.  Once the distress inks were blended I flicked on some water to create some water droplets and then brushed on some Perfect Pearls for more shimmer.  The panel was then die cut with a stitched border rectangle die and adhered to Hero Arts Floral Layering paper.


Mahalo for stopping by and I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
