Happy Friday everyone!! Today is the Kindness Instagram Hop and I am excited to be participating in this hop! This hop is sponsored by Bearly Art glue, which you all know I love Bearly Art glue! There are great prizes too!
For the hop, I decided to play with stamp set Friendship Blooms by Gina K Designs and Hero Arts, which I LOVE this stamp set! I was inspired by a shirt my best friend was wearing for the colors, which came out great! First I stamped the floral image with Hero Arts Intense Black ink, and cut it out with my Scan-N-Cut. I then colored it with Copic colors N7, N5, N3 and N0. I love the grayscale look! I then cut out leaves in black and gray using Simon Says Stamps Leaf Cluster and Leafy Branch dies. I edged the Cluster leaves with black to show some dimension. I then cut out a piece of white card stock with a slimline die from Gina Marie and then colored it with blending brushes using Pixie Dust and Royal Treatment inks from Catherine Pooler. I then picked out the sentiment from the Christopher's Sentiments dies from Brutus Monroe and cut the shadow portion out of vellum and the sentiment portion out of white 110lb cardstock. I then colored the sentiment with Pixie Dust ink. I then glued the sentiment onto the vellum using Bearly Art glue and then added some Glossy Accents from Ranger on the sentiment. While the Glossy Accents dried, I glued the leaves onto the purple card panel using Bearly Art glue, and then glued the flower image onto the leaves using Bearly Art glue. The parts of the flower image that hung over the leaves I used some foam tape to pop them up. I then glued the sentiment onto the leaves/floral image using Bearly Art glue. I then added some heart embellishments from Trinity Stamps using Bearly Art glue. After the card panel was complete, I glued it onto a black 110lb card base using Bearly Art glue. This turned out so great! I am so glad that my bestie's shirt gave me this inspiration!!
I hope you will "hop" on over to my Instagram and hop the IG Hop! There are great prizes being given away and you will get to read about how crafters share kindness!!
