Hi crafters. The current challenge at A Blog Named Hero is anything but a card. I decided to make a bookmark with the Hero Arts Ink Painting Scene stamp set. I found a piece of thin grey packaging cardboard and trimmed it to shape. It already had the V shape so I incorporated that. I gessoed both sides and then added distress stains. I stamped my scene in archival inks in top. I added a little more stain and stamped some clouds with stain as well. I was worried about colour coming off in the book so I sprayed with fixative. Turns out fixative makes the archival ink run! This mainly affected the waterfall and trees. I restamped over the waterfall in black.
Now the back will be seen, so I added stains and stamping in a few colours with the Hero Arts Nevermore stamp.
Hope you are all well. Happy crafting,
