A wintry Hero Arts card

I’ve got inky fingers! Been working on stamped cards and neglecting my blog, so sad :( Anywhoo I’ve got a lot of sharing to do and what better way to start then with a cool little card and a neat little trick.

Here’s a card stamped all over with Hero Arts stamps. And who doesn’t love Hero Art?

Stamps: Hero Arts “Woodgrain pattern” (my absolutely favorite background stamp) &Hero Arts clear design “birds and butterflies”
Inks: Memento “Desert Sand”, VersaColor “pinecone” & “brown”, ColorBox “Dark Moss” & “white”
Copics: B000 B01 B02
Glitter: Poly Flake
Mod Podge

I love the way the snow cover ground came out. I think it gives it a wintry look. It was super easy to do here’s how:

Using your Copics
Just lay down B02 on the bottom of your paper. I used regular white cardstock and overlapped the color. Try and add more to the bottom section and gradient lighter to the top. Next blend and go upwards with B01using same technique. Usually when you blend with Copics you would make small circles but for this, just make long strokes. And then use the B000 in the same way. After I had the color down with the Copics, I use a stamp with white ink and stamped over the top.
For this one I tore the top edge, painted the tore edge with mod podge, and added glitter.
