Hero Arts MMH July 2022: Water Reflection Stamping

 Hello Crafters! 

Welcome to the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero Blog Hop! You should have arrived from the fabulous Jennifer Kotas, did you see those rainbow flamingos?! If you're just stopping by head over to the Hero Arts Blog so you don't miss a stop. 

Hero Arts is generously giving away a $50 gift card, drawn from the comments left across the hop. Enter by Sunday, July 10th at 11:59pm Pacific, and the winner will be announced on the Hero Arts blog the following week

Now let's talk about this fantastic kit!


How fun is this for Summer?! The kit is $34.99 but if you bought it all separately it'd be over $75. It's such a good deal!
My sister loves flamingos so I created my card with her in mind.



I first stamped my flamingos as they are the focal point of my card. I needed them to be stamped and die cut in order to create my reflection scene. 


I did some quick ink blending to create my sky and sea. I stamped the clouds from the set using white ink and then set out to create my reflection. I used the mirror stamping technique to do this. You'll need a piece of acetate. I love Hero Arts acetate but you can use leftover packaging. You'll stamp your image onto the acetate and then flip it over onto your cardstock and "stamp" with it. I started first with the legs and then with the solid bodies. 


If you have any area that skip you can use a paintbrush to "paint" in any areas of ink that were missed. Once this was dry I stamped the water ripple from the kit in both my dark and light teal colors. 
I added some shine with perfect pearls over the water and the clouds. 

You can check out the whole process in the video below.
