Hero Arts Color Layering Blog Hop!



Hello and Welcome to the Hero Arts Color Layering Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from the Fabulous Yana's blog!  If not, you'll want to start at the Hero Arts blog so that you don't miss out on any of the fun!

Hero Arts will be giving away a Color Layering Bundle of the winners choice to FIVE lucky blog readers - selected from comments left across all blogs in the hop. Comments close Sunday June 19 at 11:59pm pt, Hero Arts will announce the winners the following week.

Color Layering uses the technique of stamping progressively, building color and detail, resulting in an elegant, dimensional look.  The Hero Arts Design team was asked to recommend their favorite colors to best highlight each Color Layering Stamp set.  The results have been developed into 4-cube ink packs, featuring the artist's name!  While the inks were developed with a specific stamp set in mind, the packs offer wonderful and rich versatility; you'll find they work well with most any set and often produce stunning and unexpected results!

Hero Arts also introduced a fabulous new Color Layering stamp set with this release - the Color Layering Pineapple and coordinating Color Layering Pineapple Frame Cuts. There's also an ink cube pack for this set, Hero's Pineapple.  The Color Layering Pineapple Bundle contains the stamps, frame cuts and ink cube pack! 

Check out the other Color Layering Bundles...combined new ink packs with their Color Layering stamp set (and dies in some cases)!

Did you see the Color Layering Catalog:


This was such a fun project.  I used the Color Layering Large Orchid set.  If you've been following me for any length of time, you know how much I LOVE the color green!  I'm super excited about the Amy's Shades of Green ink set!





Oh my, look at all of the Ink Packs:


I'm the end of the blog hop!  I hope that you enjoyed it!!!  In case you got lost along the way, here is the entire hop listing:
