Hero Arts Soft Vanilla Ink Technique!

Hey hello! I’m on the Hero Arts blog today, sharing a nifty technique using Soft Vanilla ink. It’s just like magic!

Here’s a look at the card, using the new Star Background Fancy die from the just-released Starry Nights catalog:

I just stamped the BasicGrey Astronomy Background on cream letterpress paper using the Soft Vanilla ink, then went over it with daubers (see list below).

I first stumbled across this Soft Vanilla ink trick while working on this journaling page for the Hero Arts 2014 catalog. Here you can really see the magic!

I just inked the Tiny Flags Background with Soft Yellow and Soft Vanilla and stamped it. Then I stamped the Bird in black, and traced around the edges with daubers and watched the magic happen. So cool, right?

Join me over on the Hero Arts blog for more! Oh and if you’re looking for these new stamps, they’re arriving at participating stores as I type! :)
