Video: Watercolor (Stamp Your Story Blog Hop) + Giveaway

Welcome to the Hero Arts Stamp Your Story Blog Hop! We have lots of fun artists today using the Hero Arts Stamp Your Story stamps. Me? I have a video!

I wanted to share an easy and fast way to create a watercolor background…

So the key to making a nice, blended watercolor background (with any watercolor media) is to wet the watercolor paper first…

I just love the My Words stamp set from Hero Arts. These open-letter words are so versatile…

This stamp set is part of the Hero Arts Stamp Your Story stamp line. You can see the line in the digital version of the catalog here.

The next person on the hop is the incredibly lovely Kelly Rasmussen… a favorite cardmaker of mine! (If you want to start the hop at the beginning, head on over to the Hero Arts Blog.)


There will be a giveaway for this hop… with a winner being drawn randomly from the pool of comments left on ALL of the blog hop stops. Leave your comments by 7/9/13 for your chance. Good luck!
