Hero Arts 2018 Catalog Blog Hop
Hi everyone! Welcome to the Hero Arts 2018 Catalog Blog Hop!

Even though most of us are still experiencing winter weather, my mind is always wandering the summer days and all things ocean 🙂 I just love all the new mermaid and nautical goodies in the Hero Arts catalog!
Using the new Hero Arts Stamp & Cuts Mermaid Set, I stamped the mermaid and the sea turtle and colored them in with Copic markers. Trying to experiment and play with my markers more and I had a lot of fun coloring and shading in these images. I love how the turtle came out!
For the card background, I inked the Mermaid Waves stencil with Salty Ocean Distress Oxide, to fill most of the right half of the card. I then just ink blended the Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink on the remainder of the left side. I folded the card in half and then the front panel I folded back in half to create a fun little accordion fold.
On some scraps of Distress Watercolor Cardstock I inked them in various Distress Oxide Inks ( Twisted Citron, Peeled Paint, Abandoned Coral, and Picked Raspberry). I then die-cut out a bunch of seaweed and coral from the Hero Arts Coral Fancy Die Set.
For the sentiment, I die-cut “hello” from the Hero Arts Hello Coordinating Set several times with Lawn Fawn Guava Cardstock. I then layered them together with some multi-matte medium. Then I stamped “thinking of you” on a strip of paper with the Hero Arts Ombre Pool to Navy Ink Pad. I couldn’t find my sentiment banner dies (LOL) so I hand cut my own banner (the horror hehehe).
Once I got everything adhered and layered the way I wanted I finished it off by adding some Prisma Glitter to the mermaid with the Lawn Fawn Glue Tube and adding some dots of Nuvo in Morning Dew and Simply White. I absolutely LOVE this card, and hope you find it inspiring!
