Partners: Gina K . Designs & Hero Arts Blog Hop + giveaway!

Hi everyone!
Hero Arts is celebrating 45 years, and we are honored and humbled that Gina K is sharing in the celebration! A special “Partners” Hero Arts + Gina K Designs stamp set is available on the Hero Arts Website!!! 
This is an amazing 6x8 stamp set called Friendship Blooms. The flowers are amazing also the sentiments included in the set.

So, we are celebrating this partnership and release with a hop and giveaway. So if you are following the hop then you should have come from Emily's blog  and I am your last stop. If you didn't follow the hop you may want to start from  Hero's blog!

For my card I stamped the big flourish onto watercolor paper using watermark and embossing ink, then embossed in white. I watercolored it using Zig clean color real brush markers. Set it aside to dry.
Next, stamped the sentiment onto Pitch Black card stock, embossed in white and trimmed to size.
Cut down the watercolored panel to 4" x 5 1/4" and adhered the sentiment. Assembled the card and added some enamel dots as finishing touch!





Prize: 
PR101 HA + GinaK Friendship Blooms stamp set. One winner will be drawn from the comments left across the hop. Comment by Sunday, August 4 at 11:59pm PST.
