Wonderful, Part 4

We all have at least one friend who is particularly wonderful in every way possible. These friends know how to listen, to tell us the truth in love, to make us laugh when we're down, and to love us at our worst...and best.

They are full-spectrum friends. And this card will go to one of mine.

If you go to my first Wonderful card, you'll see the exact same product used (the Arteza brush pens) but in a very different way. On that first card I scribbled ink from the pens onto an acrylic block and used a wet brush to blend those bright, bold colors into pretty pastels.

Today's card used the Arteza pens full strength directly on the paper to create a bold background spectrum to die cut. This was embarrassingly easy to accomplish...which always satisfies. Note how bright and bold and happy those colors are!

The stars (all from the Wonderful set) were inked with various Kaleidacolor pads and sprinkled around the sentiment.

Wonderful! Note how different the look is here to the previous three cards. All those were two-layer cards plus the die cut. Here, we have a simple one-layer card that lets all the fabulous, bright color do the work. The versatility and flexibility of this amazing set from Hero Arts is proved again!

One more card to go!

Mercy, grace, peace and love,

stamps: Hero Arts Wonderful
ink: Archival black, various Kaleidacolor inks
paper: Papertrey white
accessories: Arteza brush pens, coordinating die


  1. Another great, peppy card. Thanks for sharing. Do you ever separate the Kaleidacolor pads? If so, how?

  2. What a beautiful was to brighten my day as I enjoy your creation!

  3. Love this too! Love all the stars sprinkled around!
