Before I get to the card I wanted to share with you some more sneak peeks of what we will be creating at the October Loft Art Retreat. Everyone will go home with 20+ handmade holiday cards as well as other fun goodies!
Edited to add: Saturday is FULL and only FOUR spots left for Sunday October 12th. More details can be found here, I would love for you to join us!
I promised you yesterday when I shared my card for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge that I would be back today AND tomorrow with some more creations with Hero Arts supplies. I have had some new goodies from them just waiting for me to create with.
Let me share with you how I created the card above using some masking tricks, distress inks and embossing powder!
First I took some painters tape and covered the stamp images from the Hero Arts Written In The Stars stamp set that I knew I wanted to use on the card. This way I knew the size I was going to have to mask.
I then used those same pieces of painters tape and adhered them to a piece of Distress Watercolor Paper where I wanted to position the stamped images. Note: Before you do this step, be sure to rub your powder tool all over the Distress Watercolor paper to get any cling, or static off of it. I forgot this step and it was a bit tedious to brush the extra powder off with a paint brush
Dip the Distress Watercolor paper into your bucket of white embossing powder (or clear, it doesn’t really matter)
Peel the painters tape off, and heat emboss the stars. Not Pictured: Stamp the arrow and sentiment in Versamark, and emboss those as well.
Using your mini blending tool and Seedless Preserves Distress ink, start to blend the ink in the center of the card. You can see the white embossed images repel the ink.
Then on the edges blend in Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink. I then trimmed the card down a bit, and adhered it to a card. Easy right!?
I hope you enjoyed this technique and I will be back tomorrow with another Hero Arts card for you!
