Hero Arts Spring Catalog Blog Hop!



Hello and welcome! Today I am hopping along with the Hero Arts Creative Team and other amazing card artists as we launch both the Spring 2023 Catalog and new additions to Creative Essentials! One of my favorite new things falls into the Creative Essentials category - Neon Brights Liquid Watercolors! These paints are SO MUCH FUN!! They have my heart going pitter patter!


I had fun swatching out the Liquid Watercolors, and then I also spent some time painting the beautiful new Bee Florals Window Fancy Die. I used many of the colors, including just a touch of purple in the flowers. I also added some Black Liquid Watercolor to the bees.


I turned it into a card by mounting it onto a panel of Arctic Cardstock, then added a message strip from Everyday Sentiment Strips, creating little fishtails on the ends of the banner with my scissors.


Next, I played with the Liquid Watercolors by mixing them with Hero Paste. I used Neon Pink, Neon Orange and Neon Yellow, and spread them through the new Lacy Floral Stencil. I adore this stencil, it's so pretty, and sturdy enough to take a beating with all the fun mediums. I finished the card with more Everyday Sentiment Strips.


Here's another look at that yummy texture!


Now it's time to hop! Hero Arts will be giving away two $50 gift cards, drawn from the comments left along the hop. Comment on all the blogs for more chances to win! You have until Sunday, February 26 at 11:59pm to enter. The winners will be announced on the Hero Arts blog.


Thanks for stopping by!

  6. I love the idea of being able to mix the colors with the Hero Paste to get exactly what you want (instead of buying a bunch of different colored pastes). Great job!
