Hero Arts Watercolor Card – July Stamp Kit

Hero ArtsEasy Peasy watercolor technique.  I am having so much fun with the Hero Arts July Stamp Kit and my Zig real brush markers.

The card looks like it took a long time to make but it was super easy and quick.

I am not an artist by any means, LOL.  But I was really impressed with how easy it was to use the Zig Markers and water to make this scene.

For the next layer cut a piece of Lawn Fawn Watercolor paper using an oval die shape.
