New Hero Arts!

Hi there! Today I'm over on the Hero Arts blog sharing a card using some new products from the Starry Nights catalog. And while I had my supplies out I thought I'd make another card using the same supplies to share here.

The sentiment is from the Shoot for the Moon clear stamp. I absolutely LOVE this set -- so many awesome sentiments!

I used watercolor paints to create the blue and green gradient background. And then I used the Starry Night stencil along with white embossing paste for the stars over the top. Love the texture and dimension the embossing paste adds!

 Thanks for stopping by!

A Blog Named Hero Birthday Blog Hop

Welcome to my stop on the A Blog Named Hero Blog Hop! You should arrived here from Sarah Gray's blog.  I'm thrilled to be apart of the hop today celebrating ABNH's 2nd birthday!

For my card I stamped and embossed the awesome Birthday Chart stamp onto some watercolor paper.

Then I colored over the embossed image with Distress Markers, spritzed it with water and let the colors mix.

Once the image was dry, I used the iron off technique to iron off the embossed sentiment, creating a perfectly smooth image.  I am addicted to this awesome technique that I learned from Jennifer McGuire...HERE is a video she did showing you exactly how to do it.

Also, I used the Bubble Confetii stencil for the background. I just rubbed VersaMark ink over the openings of the stencil and then dusted on some Perfect Pearls to create the shiny silver dots.

Be sure to leave a comment for your chance to win a prize from Hero Arts or Simon Says Stamp!

Your next stop on the hop is Sindhura Prajay!
