Hello hello and happy weekend! I’ll be back sharing my Mother’s Day cards tomorrowbecause my MIL reads my blog and she might see ha! —  but today I wanted to share some cards I made with the very versatile Night and Day Flowers set from Hero Arts. Just love this set so much!

Hero Arts Night & Day Flowers

You can use the outline stamps by themselves, the solids by themselves, or combine both! (I just may have had a little hand in these designs.)

For this first card I used the outlines and did some watercoloring. Check it out:

I made the soft background by doing one of my favorite tricks: I tapped daubers on an acrylic block, misted with water, tilted the block back and forth a little to blend the colors, then placed a piece of white cardstock over top and pressed down. You can see another card where I used this technique here on this post — I just think it’s so soft and pretty to layer the pastel daubers over regular colors.

I kind of put green near the bottom for grass and blues towards the top for sky. Then once it was dry I stamped the flowers and colored them in.

And I couldn’t resist working in one of my favorite stamps lately — the BasicGrey Astronomy Background. Just can’t get enough!

Two More Cards

In case you missed it, I shared two more cards using the Night & Day Flowers set over on the Hero Arts blog yesterday. It’s just some simple stamping, but it’s a great way to explore color combinations!

  1. Another lovely card using this set Lisa – that fun background stamp is a great complement to the soft, watercoloury florals too ;) Thanks for the inspiration, Rx
