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

This is beautiful, Kymona!
Honestly, I can’t choose one over the other…both cards are really beautiful, Kymona! I haven’t tried no line coloring yet, and now I think I’ll give it a go!
I think both cards have their own merits – and are both breathtakingly gorgeous!! What a fun technique and a fun challenge!! I will be trying that challenge out for sure!! Thanks for the fun idea and the constant source of inspiration you are!!!
Hey Monika!! Thank you for the sweet comment.
Very pretty cards. It is very hard to choose, but I really like the first card. I’m hoping to have to give no-line watercoloring a try. Thanks for the inspiration.
Hey Hope!! Thank you so much for your wonderful comment. I’m with you I like the first one better because of the butterfly wing tips.
Hmmm… they’re both gorgeous but I do like the edges of the butterfly on the first card the best. I haven’t been brave enough to try this technique yet but maybe I’ll check out that video…
Hey Jen!! Thank you so much for your wonderful comment. You have to give it a try. Its amazing to see what you create when your done.

CONGRATS on your win at Hero Arts, Kymona! I’m not at all surprised that your gorgeous card was chosen! WTG!!!
