Hero Arts + Gina K Designs Partner Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello there, have you seen that Hero Arts is collaborating with fantastic companies this month to celebrate their 45th anniversary? Today, Hero Arts is partnering with Gina K Designs to release a gorgeous new stamp set called Friendship Blooms. This set was designed by Gina K Designs but has a Hero Arts twist to it. To celebrate the collaboration, we are having a fun blog hop. More on that below :)
 

For my card, I started off by stamping the Friendship Blooms Stamp Set on to white cardstock using Intense Black Ink. I then coloured it using Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area) and fussy cut it out with scissors.
 
 
I took an A2 white card base and using a blending brush, I blended a soft layer of Blue Hawaii Reactive Ink on the front. I then spritzed this with White Iridescent Shimmer Spray and set aside to dry. Once dry, I stamped the sentiment from the Friendship Blooms set on to the top right hand side using Intense Black Ink.
 
 
I adhered the floral image on top using foam tape. To finish off, I added white gel pen dots to the flowers and leaves and added a sprinkling of Lucy's Iridescent Jewels around the flowers.
