Stay Crafty with Hero Arts GUEST ARTIST - By the Sea

I am so so so soooo excited for today! I am thrilled to say that I am the guest artist for this month's Stay Crafty with A Blog Named Hero challenge! It's the perfect challenge theme for the summer - By the Sea.

If you're visit for the first time, I encourage you to follow my account on Instagram where I share a lot more than what's found here on the site. See you there :) @rwkrafts

I was inspired by the gorgeous stamp "Underwater Pattern" and also wanted to incorporate watercolor to further follow the water theme. Here are my mini slimline cards...

I just love how they turned out, and will certainly be making more of these. I started by heat embossing the image with Hero Arts Brass powder on mixed media paper. I then loosely watercolored the entire image with Distress Inks. Once the paper was dry I went back in to add watercolor to the details in a darker shade.

For the happy birthday card I used Distress Inks in the colors Salvaged Patina, Peacock Feathers, Seedless Preserves, and Cracked Pistachio. To make the bold sentiment I used the Hero Arts set "Happy Thanks Stamp and Cut". I used Brass embossing powder over the whole die cut (happy) then layered it against the die cut from black cardstock. I did the same for the 'thanks' die on the card below.

For the Thanks a Million card I used Distress Inks in the colors Picked Raspberry, Carved Pumpkin, Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, and Kitsch Flamingo.

Thank you so much for joining me! I hope you join in the Stay Crafty with Hero challenge this month. I can't wait to see what everyone creates!
