Hero Arts Summer 2020 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway!


Hi everyone! Today the beautiful Summer Release from Hero Arts is available on their website! My favorite product from the release is this gorgeous Grapevine Window Fancy Die. And may know from past history, my very favorite thing to do with a window scene die like this is to watercolor it!


After die cutting from watercolor paper, I used several colors of Liquid Watercolor for this: Leaf, MossPine, Purple, Mulled Wine, Pink, Cocoa, ArtPrint Brown, and Black.


I wanted to add a bit more grapes and leaves to my scene, so I die cut it a second time and selectively snipped off pieces to paint & add, some glued directly and some popped up. The message is from Vineyard HeroScape, and I embossed it in gold on vellum


After the card was complete, I added a touch of sparkle to the grapes with Star Dust Stickles.

Ok, ready to see a bunch more inspiration? The next stop along the hop is my favorite human Lydia! Be sure to visit all the blogs on the hop and comment along the way, you'll get yourself more chances to win a $50 gift code to the Hero Arts store! Here's the entire list of hoppers:

  3. Your card is the best of the hop. The lighter greens are welcoming and then adding the layering of more leaves was a great idea.
