Welcome to the Pinkfresh Studio + Hero Arts Blog Hop!
Pinkfresh Studio has joined forces with Hero Arts to release this gorgeous You Make A Difference Stamp Set. Today I am sharing these one layer floral background cards that feature the Hero Hues Reactive Inks used to ink the backgrounds, stamp the floral frame, and even used to "watercolor" the floral images. Simple dry embossed oval frames help highlight the stamped and embossed sentiments in the center of the design.

Watch the creation of these one layer floral cards from start to finish below or click HERE to watch in HD:
For both cards a trio of Hero Hues Reactive Inks were used to add an ombre effect to the backgrounds. For the card on the left Pool Party, Key Lime Fizz, and Lemon Drop Reactive Inks were applied to Bristol Smooth Cardstock with ink blending tools. For the card on the right Taffy, Creamsicle, and Lemon Drop Reactive Inks were applied to the background. The same colors of ink were then used to ink up the You Make A Difference Stamp Set floral frame background stamp and stamp over the inked background, creating an ombre floral frame.
The Hero Hues Reactive Inks were then pressed onto a glass work mat and picked up with a damp paintbrush and the colors were "painted" onto the design to make the floral frame colorful. Taffy, Creamsicle, Lemon Drop, Key Lime Fizz, Green Apple, Pool Party, and Thistle were used for this step.
Once the backgrounds were completely dry, two Nesting Infinity Oval Frames were used to emboss the shape to the center of the panel rather than die cut. This creates a subtle highlight of the center of the design.
The cards were finished with a scattering of Nuvo Crystal Drops in Key Lime for a bit of dimension.
