Hero Arts Color Layering Blog Hop



Hello and welcome to my stop on the Hero Arts Color Layering Blog Hop!

Here's a little information from Hero Arts about Color Layering and today's hop:

Color Layering uses the technique of stamping progressively, building color and detail, resulting in an elegant, dimensional look. We've asked our talented group of artists to recommend their favorite colors to best highlight each Color Layering stamp set. The results have been developed into 4-cube ink packs, featuring the championing artist's name. While the inks were developed with a specific stamp set in mind, the packs offer wonderful and rich versatility; you'll find they work well with most any set and often produce stunning and unexpected results.

Hero Arts has also combined the new ink packs with their Color Layering stamp set (and dies in some cases) into bundles. Here's a look at the ink cube pack that I created called Kelly's Flowers as well as the bundle that is available using the stamp set and die that I chose.
Now onto the card I created using these products!

I started out by stamping the flowers and leaves with the colors in the Kelly's Flowers ink cube pack. I also added a white pigment ink for the third layer on my flower. It doesn't show up in the photo very well, but it adds another color dimension to the flower. I recently purchased a Mini Misti and it is a game changer...especially with these Color Layering Stamps!


I white heat embossed the message on a vellum panel and adhered the leaves and flowers. The black and white striped washi tape adds a fun element and was a great place for me to hide some adhesive on the vellum.


I created a subtle background using white embossing paste and the Criss Cross Stencil. And a scattering of some black sequins and pearls helped tie the card all together.

Stunning! I love the MISTI, and might even get good results now that I have it. I discovered that I am not too good at the layers on some of the smaller images, but hope the MISTI will help. Of course, they still look good even when they are off a little!!! How nice of someone to invent these type of stamps!... Thanks so much.
