Hero Arts | 2016 Summer Catalog Preview - Sea Horse Color Layering Card by @yanasmakula

Hero Arts | 2016 Summer Catalog Preview – Color Layering. Giveaway!

Hello friends! Its that time of the year again, time to hide our credit cards and close the tabs in our browser and not look at new fantabulous (yes, I just made that word up) products from Hero Arts. This week Hero Arts is sharing a few peeks into their new Summer 2016 Catalog (to be released on April 18th) and I am excited to share several cards of mine designed specifically for the catalog.

We are starting with Color Layering (using several layers of one image and stamping it in several color of ink to make it appear dimensional and more interesting) and what could be better than sea horses, shells and the ocean?

Wishing You Oceans of Joy – I think this is such a fun and unique sentiment! The images I have here were stamped in several colors of ink; I used Ultra Pink and Royal Red for the darker star fish, Ultra Pink and Unicorn White for the shells and lighter star fish, Ombre Light Purple to Grape Juice for the sea horse and Summer Sky and Deep Ocean for the long shell.

I also added a few gems from the CH235 Diamond Gems pack and foam mounted my white panel onto a light grey card base
