Just Because Cards

Hello Friend | Hero Arts Koi Bunch

Hello, I hope you’re having a nice weekend!

Today I’m sharing a card featuring the Koi Bunch stamp and die set from Hero Arts. I really like how this school of fish nicely covers an A2-sized card front and here I’ve paired it with a background panel that I made with Hero Arts cardstock and acrylic paints.

To make the background, I started with a 4.25″ x 5.5″ panel of Arctic cardstock. I added a few drops of Salvaged Patina and Peacock Feathers Distress Paints onto my craft mat and then misted the paint drops once or twice with clean clear water. I also misted the cardstock panel and then dragged the panel through the paint. I made several passes at the paint to ensure that the panel was covered and then I set it aside to dry.

Next, I stamped the grouping of fish from the Koi Bunch stamp set in Intens-ified Black Ink onto a panel of Dove White cardstock. I used an orange and a yellow Copic marker to color in the image and then used the coordinating die to cut it out (the stamp and die set are also available as a bundle).

When the background panel was dry, I trimmed 3/8″ off both the length and width and then stamped the sentiment in Black Soot Distress Archival ink at the bottom left of the panel. I used foam tape to adhere the school of fish and then to finish the card, I used more foam tape to adhere the card front to the center of an A2 card base.

Thank you so much for visiting!
