CARD DETAILS

This month kit is all about dainty florals one can wind out in the wild. I decided to use images of the sweet pea and stamped them rather randomly to create a pattern. I stamped my images in black ink onto Distress watercolor cardstock.

I also added some dashed line stamping along the edges of the panel to imitate black stitching. Next, I used my Daniel Smith watercolors and added soft light coloring, I also colored the background light blue.

To create a sentiment I heat embossed “You Are So Sweet” onto black paper and foam mounted it onto the card. Lastly, I added black enamel dots using Nuvo liquid drops.

    1. Beautiful card love this kit of course I really really loved the last one and it sold out before I could get it!

    1. Yana, I’m always amazed at the lovely backgrounds you create, but I think you’ve outdone yourself with this one. I love this image and your coloring is beautiful. Wonderful release.

    1. I like this ALMOST as much as the [sweet] peas card. 🙂

    1. What an absolutely beautiful card! I don’t know if I could ever make something that lovely, but you’ve inspired me to try! Thank you.

    1. Beautiful card Yana! Thank you for sharing your inspiration!

    1. Wow!Yana,your coloring is so vibrant.The blending is de’lish.

    1. Hi Yana ~ This is such a beautiful card and it’s no surprise that your watercoloring is stunning! You always make it look and sound so darn easy. Thanks for continuing to share your talent with all of us.

    1. This is a gorgeous card — it looks like it should be a textile print too!!

    1. Yana, this card is lovely. I love how the background is barely there. It let’s the flowers shine. Thanks for the ideas.

    1. Beautiful card–love the florals. This looks like an awesome new kit from Hero Arts. Keep cool on this very hot day in Phoenix!

    1. I love the hand painting you did on this card. It is so wonderful!

    1. Love your sweetest Sweet Pea card! You can create with these supplies year round, and for all occasions. Thanks for the inspiration 🙂

    1. I love all of the cards you make. Your choice of colors is perfect on this card and inspires me to give it a try. I am 85 yrs. old and learning more every day from inspirational people like you. TFS

    1. The stitching is marvelous, it adds so much to this beautiful card!

    1. Absolutely lovely card – thanks so much for sharing!!!

    1. Beautiful. I love that you added the soft blue between the bouquets. It really is a nice touch.

    1. Your stamp repetition of the sweat pea as a background (and a focal) is a good idea on creative use of smaller stamps. Will have to try it and thank you for your Hero Arts July 2017 Kit inspiration! 🙂

    1. another beautiful stamped background that you do so well! I just bought a set of hero art ink cubes at hobby lobby today and I looked at the back and it’s your Yana’s Sunset inks. I can’t figure out what kind of ink it is though – Dye? Hybrid? package and website doesn’t say.

    1. I really enjoy the stamped backgrounds you create and this one is no exception. Stunning and so sweet. Lovely.

    1. Beautiful card, Yana! The violet color is so soft and delicate.

    1. Love those beautiful flowers and your coloring! Awesome card!
