Better Together Bloghop – Airbrushed Heart

Better Together Bloghop – Airbrushed Heart

A collaboration between Hero Arts and Ellen Hutson birthed these tweet little birdies (haha!) – and I had to airbrush them into a sweet little heart. See the rest of the cards on the hop using the list further down in this post – many cute cards to come, I’m betting! I’ll have another card later this week on Ellen’s blog so keep an eye out! Watch the video below, or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

Lots of shapes can be airbrushed behind images – and if you don’t have an airbrush, just use some inks and a blending tool! 


To celebrate the release, two randomly selected commenters will win a $30 gift certificate to the Ellen Hutson shop! To enter just leave a comment on the Ellen Hutson Classroom blog by 11:59 PST on January 28th.

    I just returned from Creativation. I don’t know of a single booth that didn’t have gold in their samples.
    I LOVED your Go for the Gold class. With Olympics and gold being such a trend this year, I think it’s time to do a rerun of that class or maybe a follow-up with new products.


  22. Love the colors!

  23. very striking card:)

  24. Love your work, including the video tutorials you make! I especially love it when you ‘err’ and show how to compensate or cover it up. Very cool.

  25. luv the airbrushing AND the bottom border. wink! wink!

  26. Great, colourful card of those little birds, even your oops did not get your feathers ruffled. Love the add strip at the base of the card, cleverly using the same colours.

  27. Hi Sandy,

    I love this card with whoops and all! You could send it to me on my birthday this Wednesday and it would have pride of place of all my birthday cards. I absolutely adore handmade birthday cards, it means so much to me that someone has gone to the trouble to make a card for me. That is why one of my New Year’s Resolutions is to send as many hand made cards to family, friends and new craft friends from the internet. If you would like a birthday card sent to you Sandy on your birthday from me, please email me with the date and an address to which I can send this, thank you. :o)

    1. Awww I’d love that Lorraine! March 27th 🙂

    2. And my mailing address is on the bottom of the blog subscription emails. As well as on my contact page.

  28. Love the air brushed heart for these colorful birds.

  29. Fabulous card, I like your branches.

  30. Such pretty birds? I love to watch you color or draw. Great artist!
