Hero Arts Peacock hello

Hi everyone! Happy Friday – hope you’ve had a good week! Today is my post day on the a2z Scrapbooking blog and I’m happy to share a DT inspiration project using the Hero Arts Color Layering Peacock stamp set, Hero Arts Peacock Layering Inks and Versamark. I’ve created an all-occasion card in one of my (many) favorite color combos of blue and green, and this card could be used for birthday, encouragement or just because. These color layering stamps and accompanying sentiments are amazing!

Before I get to my project details, we’ve had quite a few of the Hero Arts color layering stamp sets sell out recently and this was one of them. I work ahead and had this card made prior to this stamp set selling out, but I have good news – you can special order it at no extra cost when you order your other Hero Arts stamps from a2Z Scrapbooking!


I created the background by stamping a peacock feather and several swirl designs in Versamark randomly over a piece of green cardstock which I layered on silver mirror cardstock. It’s been a long while since I’ve used Versamark as a watermark and I really like the look! Next, for the focal image, I stamped the peacock and simple sentiment on white cardstock, trimmed it and layered it on silver mirror cardstock and then on a navy blue panel with a scallop border on each side. I centered this on the watermark background and then adhered the panel to the card base.


I decorated the inside panel with two narrow strips of navy blue cardstock, stamped the sentiment and layered the panel on green cardstock. I’m really loving how this turned out!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  2. What a beautiful coloured and a great idea to use Versamark as a watermark on a dark background! I have to remember that. Thanks for sharing it over at The Sisterhood of Crafters challenge and we hope you’ll come back again soon! Gwendolyn
