Welcome to the Hero Arts…
Today this fun challenge starts and I am glad to be sharing a card that I made using the new Paper Layering Die called Large Lotus. This is a pop-up die that gives the paper a 3-D effect.
For this card, I began by creating negative and positive masks with the die. I die cut the shape on paper, and then, using scissors I carefully detached the flower (positive mask) to obtain a flower shaped window (negative mask). I used the negative mask to outline the Lotus shape with a pencil over a watercolor paper panel .
I thought it would be a good idea to complement the flower with some leaves. But, because I didn’t have a Lotus leaf stamp, I created my own. I die cut a circle from foam, and then I cut out a slice of it with scissors. I placed the foam leaf onto an acrylic block with adhesive, and I used it as a stamp.
Then, I placed the positive mask over the outlined flower, and I stamped the leaf using green watercolor as the ink. I complemented with two more leaves. After that, I used the flower outline as a guide to paint the flower with pink watercolor and the rest of the panel with blue.
Next, I die cut the Lotus on the panel, I stamped a sentiment with black ink, and I curled and folded the Lotus petals to reveal its shape. I adhered the panel over a card base and I embellished it with some gemstones.
Don’t forget that this contest will be open until the end of the month, and of course there are some prizes for the winners. Please visit the Hero Arts Blog for more details.
Well, that’s all from me for today, I will be back soon to share another project.
