Hello – Watercoloring with Hero Arts Plus a pinwheel video

Hello! Happy Friday everyone! Weekend is just about here….. This card uses all Hero Arts stamps and the water coloring technique with distress inks! You all know me. I LOVE distress inks….. I heat embossed the gorgeous stamp given to me by my sweet friend Chari Moss and watercolored it. The graph background (also stamped with distress ink/water mixture) was a little too bright from me, so I decided to make it a white wash by using Picket Fence distress stains.

The supply list for this card is below, but before I go, I wanted to tell you that I have a video up on the Simon Says Stamp blog! The sweet Heidi emailed me and asked if I could make a short video showing how to make paper pinwheels, so I jumped at the opportunity. Thanks Heidi and Simon Says Stamp! I heart you all….

  3. Great post, Laurel! The pinwheel video takes the mystery out of these pretty little embellishments. I’m with you, the glue dot method is the way to go. blessings~

  4. Love that card and it’s distressing. Came out so good. Your video about pinwheels took the mystery out of it for me. They don’t look as hard as I thought they’d be. Have a wonderful weekend.
