The new challenge over at A Blog Named Hero is to make a one-layer card. We're also collaborating with Paper Smooches this month:
so all of our projects will include something from Paper Smooches in addition to Hero Arts.
I generally struggle with one-layer cards, but this one was easy! Here's my card, then I'll explain:
I first masked off the paper with painters tape. Then I smooshed three colors of Distress ink onto my craft sheet and used a water brush to paint it onto the paper. It's kindof streaky, but that's okay in my world, especially for the sky and grass!
I didn't use a lot of water, so the painters tape was fine. If you're more into water when you do this, I'd recommend you use real mask paper, as the water can get under tape. If you don't have mask paper, I'm sure it will be fiiiiine. :) Just give it a try, and you'll see how easy this is. It may be your new go-to background!
I stamped the Hero Arts tree and the Paper Smooches sentiment in Archival black, and I was done!
We hope you'll play along with us this fortnight over at ABNH!
Thanks for stopping by!
