We'll Get Through This Rough Patch

Happy Friday!

I'm here with a countdown to the Hero Arts kit that releases on Tuesday after the holiday! I'm SO stoked because it includes a new Heroscape and it's PERFECT for Halloween and Fall. I have a cool video coming with this on launch day, which is this coming Tuesday!

You know I love anything I can make spooky - and this amazing pumpkin patch can either be spooky or not. But given the choice, I'll always choose spooky!

I stamped the layering images for the corn and the ground in greys - Wet Cement and Soft Granite, and then I stamped the pumpkins in Creamsicle, and then the layering portion in Tangerine

Then I ink blended the sky with Wet Cement, and fingerpainted clouds in a medium body paint before adding the crows and the sentiment in black. See below for how you can win this kit before it even goes live, and then come back here on Tuesday for my video, another giveaway and more fun stuff with this kit and the add ons! You won't believe all the cool scenes I've seen peeks of - amazing. And this particular sentiment is so very 2020!

  20. Lydia I really appreciate the different take you used with this set on your card. I love the greys! I may just have to order those two inks. Finger painting the clouds gave them such a realistic puffy look & the sentiment is perfect considering the setting is in a pumpkin patch. Great card!!

  79. Out of all the cards I looked at this morning this was my favorite. I think it was because the sky with the birds & especially the clouds looked so realistic. My hubs is a meteorologist so those clouds really did itπŸ’—.
