Hello everyone!! I’m here with a2z Scrapbooking today with our March Challenge!!  The theme is Color It In!!

Use any Hero Arts product to create a beautiful colored in piece.  This will be super fun and interesting.  We get to go back to the basic and color!!  There are so many possibilities and so many different mediums that you can use for this challenge.

Check out the cards I created for this challenge:

I decided to go with no-line watercoloring to color in my image.

Have a fabulous day 2

This card I created first and loved the butterfly but once I added the splatters  I wasn’t to sure about it!  I thought it was to much and it took away from my watercolor butterfly.

Have a fabulous day

So I created this card with less splatter but the edges of the butterfly didn’t look as good as the first one.

I’m posting both so you can decided which one looks better.  My daughter and sister loves the first one better. What do you think?

I love how Dawn from WPlus9 watercolors so I watch her do this no-line coloring and decided to give it a try and I have to say I really like it.  It does take time but eventually I got it, I hope, LOL.

To create this card was simple:

I used the new Hero Arts Butterfly Stamp and Cut to stamp my image in a very light link.  I used Distress Ink Antique Linen.

Then I added clean water to the inside of the butterfly so that my colors will move when I add them.

I used my new Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolor #50, #64 and #44 to produce the colors you see within the butterfly.

I used Versafine Onxy Black Ink and stamped the butterfly’s center body.  If you notice in the first image, I try to draw the antennas but that didn’t turn out to well. So I stamped right over it.

I used the same ink to stamp my sentiment from the same stamp set underneath my butterfly.

I added some of the different colors to my paintbrush and added splatters to my watercolor paper panel.

I trimmed that panel down and adhered it to my card base.

Easy Peasy!!

Now its your turn to give this Color It In theme a try!!

Amazing isn’t it!! I hope you love what you see and that it inspires you to join us this month. You have the entire month to create a new project and enter it into our challenge.

Sending you an Instant Hug

This is just the beginning!!  The rest of the Design Team created some amazing projects featuring some of the new stamps.  To see those click here.

To create this card:

I stamped my So Suzy Stamps Daisy Doodle image using Versamark ink, added white embossing powder and heat embossed it.

I then used my new Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolors to add the different shades of spring colors on top of  it. Since the embossed image is ink resist, the color will not cover the image.

I stamped my So Suzy Stamps sentiment and added some ink splatters using the same colors on the flowers.

I added some Your Next Stamps black gumdrops as a perfect embellishment.

I adhered my watercolor paper to my yellow card base and I was done!!

Easy Peasy! Now its your turn to join us for this amazing Watercolor Challenge!!

CASology 135 – Mini

Second Post

If your looking for the Top Dog Dies Blog Hop post, click here

Hello everyone!!  Its CASology Tuesday!!  We are back again with another Cue Card for you!!

Week 135 - Mini

I have to say, I thought long and hard about this word “Mini”.  My first thoughts were to do something with Mini Mouse on it. Then I realized I do not have any Mini Mouse stamps, papers or embellishments so I had to scratch that idea.

Then I thought to myself, what is mini?  What do I have in my stash that is mini?  Then it hit me.

A couple weeks back, I bought a stamp set from my Instagram friend,  Vanessa who is the owner of V’s Sweet Ideas!

The set is called Coffee Break and all of the images are mini!!  Super perfect for this challenge.

Check it out:


Aren’t these the cutest “mini” images! I decided to make a couple of cards using the images from this set.

Take a look:

I used my Prisma Color Pencils for the first time and Gamsol to color in all of my images! I love the creaminess of these pencils.

Mini (CAS)

I stamped the image in the center for an added touch, LOL.  I stamped another sentiment from the set and a red heart under the iPad.  I used a gold pencil for this iPad.

I love you latte

I used a brown and teal color pencils for this coffee mug!  I stamped the sentiment and a red heart.

Mini 2 (CAS)

This card is my favorite!!  I love to read, if there is one thing you should know about me, I LOVE to read.  So when I saw this book image I was drawn in. I love how the pages of this book looks vintage.  It looks as if this book was really loved by its owners!!  I stamped my sentiment underneath with a red heart.

Mini (all)

Don’t you just love all of these miniature images!!  To top it off, my card stock was cut to a “mini” size as well!!

I hope my card has inspired you to play along with us and this amazing challenge.  So, now its your turn, so go and create something Mini! I can’t wait to see what you come up with.
