Hero Arts Hummingbirds



Hi there! Its Gwendolyn and I’m here today to share a card I made to inspire you to join us in our latest challenge which is “Color It In”, so we would love to see any projects you made which you have coloured in and you can link them up here.

I created my card using Hero Arts Spiral Petals stencil and Hero Arts Hummingbirds which you can get from the a2z Scrapbooking store. I wanted to create a form of a flower through my stencil so I added coloured paste through a part of the stencil, by first mixing blue liquid watercolour with a clear embossing paste, taping down the stencil on 250g mixed media card stock and adding the paste through the stencil with a spatula. Be sure to clean your stencil and spatula as soon as you finish. Once it dried, I sprinkled some Violet Brushos paint powder over it and spritz it with water, this dissolves the powders into beautiful washes of colour!

While that was drying, I stamped one of the birds from the Hero Arts Hummingbirds set with Hero Arts black ink and coloured it in with my Zig clean color real watercolour brushes. I fussy cut it and added it on my card in a position that would give the impression it was suckling the nectar from the flower I created with my stencil. To finish, I stamped the sentiment from the Hero Arts Hummingbirds set, with Hero Arts black ink, using my Misti so I would get a strong black sentiment against the colourful background.

Well, I hope you are inspired by my card to create a card of your own using your colouring mediums. I look forward to seeing them at the challenge here. Who knows, you could be the winner of a digi stamp, and if you happen to use Sugartree or Hero Arts products, you will get a $20 gift voucher to shop at the store, in addition to the digi stamp!

Have a great day! Hugs
