VIDEO | Creating Layers of Rainbows

Hello there, today I have a card to share that I shared before over on the Hero Arts YouTube Channel. I am now sharing it over here too. I have created layers of rainbows using different mediums and the Hero Arts Succulent Bouquet set. 

I started off my card by taking a panel of Fabriano Artistico Extra White Cold Pressed Watercolour Paper and stamping the Hero Arts Succulent Bouquet Stamp Set image on top. This is just to be used as a guide for the colours, you will not see it on the finished card. I then spritzed the panel with a Hero Arts Water Mist Bottle and dropped in Hero Arts Liquid Watercolors. 

I used Pink, Orange, Dandelion, Pine, Deep Ocean and Purple. I then misted the area again and ideally at this point, I would let it sit to dry but I did fiddle with it for some time as you will see in the video! Eventually, I set the piece aside to dry. Once dry, it was die cut out using one of the Hero Arts Nesting Rectangle Infinity Dies and adhered flat to an A2 card base made from Hero Arts Pitch Black Cardstock

I took the same Hero Arts Succulent Bouquet stamp and stamped it on to white cardstock with Hero Arts Intens-ified Black Ink. It was coloured using Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area) and die cut out using the coordinating die. I also die cut the piece another two times just from white cardstock so I could stack the die cuts up for dimension. This was then adhered on top of the panel on the card. 

I took a sentiment from the Hero Arts Message Strips Stamp & Cut XL and stamped it on to more Pitch Black Cardstock with Hero Arts Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink. I applied White Detail Embossing Powder and heat set. It was cut out with the coordinating die and added to the card with foam tape. To finish off, I added a few Hero Arts Neutrals Enamel Dots


Here is the video showing how I made the card:
