So here's how I was inspired:


I absolutely ADORE the Hero Arts Color Layering Blue Whale set!  I used the following Hero Arts inks for her:

Pool Mid-Tone Shadow Ink • Navy Mid-Tone Shadow Ink • Intense Black

The stencil is one that I had in my stash that I used some distress ink on and followed up with speckling with my Kuretake Gansai Tambi black watercolor.


The sentiment from the Hero Arts Color Layering Blue Whale set has been stamped with Hero Arts Red Royal Mid-Tone Shadow Ink.

I'm having a special Instagram Giveaway in celebration of The Heart Desires First Anniversary!

I can't wait for you to see what my teamies have designed...you're going to LOVE the inspiration!
