Hero Arts February 2018 My Monthly Hero Blog Hop + Giveaway

by May Park-

Happy Monday, my crafty friends! Welcome to the Hero Arts February 2018 My Monthly Hero Kit Blog Hop. If you came from the amazing Yana Smakula’s blog, you are right on track!

To celebrate a release of the February 2018 My Monthly Hero Kit, I created a one layer watercolor card using following stamp sets from Hero Arts: Hummingbirds and Come Fly With Me.

I started by stamping two floral images and one hummingbird image from the Hummingbirds stamp set with Hero Arts Intense black ink on an A2 size Arches cold press watercolor paper. I used the masking technique to create a cluster of flowers on my card front.

Then I colored my images with one of my favorite watercolors which is Mijello Mission Gold Watercolor Set. If you would like to see how I watercolored my images, please refer to my old video tutorial where I shared an easy way to watercolor flowers using Mijello Mission Gold Watercolors.

After masking off my watercolored hummingbird using a post-it note, I added splatters to add some interest to my background. Then I stamped the sentiment from the Come Fly With Me stamp set with Hero Arts Intense black ink.

To achieve more detailed look of my flowers, I added some dots using a white gel pen and fine lines using a Copic Multiliner Black pen in the center of each flower. I finished off my card by mouthing my watercolor panel o an A2 size green colored card base.

    Oh my! I love your delicate little hummingbird. I can’t wait for May to see them start arriving back to the feeders.
    The fine spattering for the background justs adds to the delicate nature of your design.
