A Blog Named Hero with Honey Bee Stamps - Watercoloring May Challenge!

Monday, May 15, 2017

Hello everyone!

I am here with A Blog Named Hero and we are collaborating with Honey Bee Stamps this month.  The challenge this month is "Watercoloring", I hope you have had a chance to stop over on A Blog Named Hero's blog and see all the wonderful designs made by the design team.   

Here is my take on the challenge.

Closer look at the shimmer on the background:

My card is an A2 card, to create the background I started out by using some watercolor paper, I sprayed the paper with water and then used the distress crayons to created my background.  I then took the Hero Arts stencil Sprinkle and laid it on my colored piece of watercolor paper and took a baby wipe and rubbed the stencil so the confetti would show up onto my paper.  After the paper dried, I sprayed it with some shimmer spray to give my background some shimmer.  I die cut the balloons from the Honey Bee Celebration stamp set and colored them with copic markers. I used the following copics on the balloons:  B02, 04, 06, R81, 83, 85, Y17, 38, YR68, YG21, 03, 17, 67, Y02, 06, 08.  I used a white gel pen to add the white lines on the balloons to give them definition.  I finished the card off by adding the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Hero Arts Birthday messages stamp set.

I hope I have inspired you to join in on the challenge, there will be one random entry, who can win a prize from A Blog Named Hero.  Please remember to follow all of our challenge rules so that you’re eligible for our prize.
