Hey everyone. Welcome back. I’m playing with the Abstract Honeycomb Bold Print stamp from Hero Arts today. I love a great background stamp and this one is beautiful. Let’s see how this card came together.
I wanted the card to have texture so I decided not to have my inks blended perfectly. Dabbing on some distress oxide inks in Candied Apple, Worn Lipstick and Seedless Preserves was the first task. I made sure to overlap each color just a little bit. I spritz the background stamp lightly with water and pressed it down on Dove White card stock.
Setting this panel aside I stared to work on the sentiment. I stamped a sentiment from the Bee and Flowers Wreathe stamp set in black ink and fussy cut it out with my scissors. Next I used the Hexagon Infinity dies to make a gold frame for my sentiment. I decided to go with gold for a pop of shine.
Going back to my colorful panel, I adhered it to a black piece of card stock and placed it on a side folding card also from Hero Arts. I popped up my sentiment on foam tape and placed the gold frame around it.
To bring in just a touch more of gold, I added on some gold baubles around the card. I had so much fun creating this card. I’m going to give it a go again in different colors. What colors would you like to see next for the Abstract Honeycomb stamp? Leave me a comment below and I’ll give it a try. Have a great day everyone and I’ll see you back here again this week with more card inspiration.
