Hero Arts Summer Catalog - Destinations!

Welcome to Day 2 of Hero Arts 2016 Summer Catalog sneak peeks on my blog! Today the featured stamps are some of my absolute FAVORITES from the new catalog!! Hero Arts has created a bunch of "Destination" stamps - woodblock stamps featuring different parts of the country. Sooooo cute and fun!


I created some 3 x 4 cards with these stamps, perfect for tucking into my pocket-style scrapbooks. I used white embossing powder on watercolor paper, and then quickly watercolored the background with my Daniel Smith paint dots. I'm a wee bit addicted to watercoloring lately - just like a huge chunk of the crafting world!


For more ideas using these new  stamps from Hero Arts, visit these fabulous blogs!
