Color as a Focal Point – Watercoloring

Hello, all! Today I’m playing with a new stamp set from Concord & 9th and Hero Arts. Yes, a collaboration stamp set! Concord & 9th is helping Hero Arts celebrate their 45th anniversary by releasing a brand new Turnabout stamp set! You can pick up the new 6×8 Props Turnabout stamp set at Hero Arts starting today, and at other retailers beginning July 10.

And if you’re a Hero Arts kit subscriber, you can add it to your MMH box, too!

So today’s post is part of a blog hop with a bunch of artists using the new Props Turnabout stamp set.

(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).

The idea behind today’s card is all about using color as a focal point. I thought it would be fun to have the center area around the greeting be very colorful while the area around it would be monochromatic. It’s a fun way to create a focal point. :)

I used the Paper Fashion watercolor set from American Crafts to paint the entire card, using the black shade for the monochromatic parts.

The new Props Turnabout stamp set is available now at Hero Arts, along with the Turnabout Jig (you can also get the jig at Concord & 9th). The stamp set will also be available at other retailers that carry Hero Arts products on July 10.

Giveaway!

Hero Arts is giving away the stamp set, a Turnabout Jig, and also the Hero Arts die set that coordinates with the rectangle in the stamp set, to one lucky winner! The winner will be randomly selected from all the comments lefts on the blogs across the hop.

You have until June 30 at 11:59pm PST to comment on each blog hop stop. The winner will announced next week on the Hero blog. Good luck!

Now get hopping!

There is lots of inspiration for the Props Turnabout stamp set today! Your next stop on the hop is the amazing Kathy Racoosin!
