Hero Arts 2018 Catalog Blog Hop with Giveaway


Hello, and welcome to the final stop on the Hero Arts 2018 Catalog Blog Hop.
And YES - this means I have cards to share today!!! Woo hoo!!
Hero Arts have released a ton of gorgeous new products this year - and I am here, along with many crafty friends, to showcase some of them. You should have arrived from lovely Libby Hickson's blog. If not, head to the beginning HERE.
First, I chose to work with the new Dragonfly Fancy Die. I cut it from watercolour paper, then used some of Hero Arts new liquid watercolours (Deep Ocean and Pine) to colour it. Once dry, I added some of my own Sparkling Clear Glitter Mix and Clear iridescent Jewels. The sentiment is from the new Swans and Cattails stamp set.
Lots of sparkle and shine on this dragonfly.
And secondly, I chose the adorable Mouse Tea Party set and matching frame cuts. This set is right up my street. :)
I just did simple watercoloring - this time with Art Print Brown and Strawberry - then added a few Glossy Eggshell Pearls to finish.

---------------GIVEAWAY---------------
Hero Arts is giving away three $50 shopping sprees, drawn from comments left on all blogs.
Leave a comment here by 11.59PT on Thursday 22nd February to be entered.

Here is the full list of blog hop participants.

And thanks for stopping by. :)
