Hero Arts Winged Friends


Hi, friends, Chark here today with my favorite flower stamp, the Hero Arts Large Hydrangea as a background stamp instead of the focus image. It’s still beautiful and fun to color, but it’s only a supporting player for the main image from the digital collection, Winged Friends (just $2.99 for four beautiful images.)


I used Prismacolor pencils on the butterfly and Tombow markers on the flowers and leaves.


I used white embossing powder after I stamped the flowers in Versamark ink and the white lines help keep the watercolor effects of the Tombow markers right where I wanted them. The bleeding and mixing of colors was controlled in each flower this way. Couldn’t love this flower stamp more and there’s just one in stock in the store! If it sells out, you can always special order it at a2z Scrapbooking at no additional cost!

To finish this project, I cut out the stamped panel, adhered it to a white gift bag and added silver border stickers and some ribbon from my stash. It’s ready to go to a birthday party now!

Happy Saturday!

  1. Oh, wow! I LOVE the bold colors in your image, and the mix of the colored pencil & marker. Gorgeous doesn’t even begin to describe it! 🙂 ~ Andrea

  2. Wow this is Gor-geous!! Great idea of combining the stamp image and digi stamp.

  3. I love the idea of making a main stamp like the flower a background. Beautiful card.
