I shared this fun stenciled card on the Hero Arts blog last Friday:
And today I’m sharing a card using several of the fun add-ons!
I also have a video for this card that you can watch below or over at my Youtube channel:
To start I blended my background onto strathmore bristol cardstock using a variety of Hero Arts inks! I used Soft Canteloupe shadow ink, Fruit Punch reactive ink, Crimson hybrid ink, and Mulled Wine hybrid ink! I love that you can mix and match the various types of inks to get the colors you want! After I finished blending I set the panel aside to dry. Next I die-cut the gorgeous Nature Border Fancy die using Hero Hues Pitch Black cardstock. Then I turned a panel of gold glitter cardstock upside down, place the die on the white side of the cadstock, and die-cut it again. This created a reverse die-cut that could then be layered with the black cardstock!
Then I stamped my sentiment from Color Layering Joey onto the blended panel with versafine and heat-embossed it with clear embossing powder. I adhered my two Nature Borders over the blended panel and then added my kangaroo pair. The outline die for Color Layering Joey is detailed enough that I decided to just let it stand on its own. I die-cut it twice from Pitch Black cardstock and simply turned one around to get the reverse image. If you find that the back of the die-cut it a little rough you can use bone folder to smooth out the edges and it will look perfect! I adhered them with foam mounting tape to finish my card!
And that’s it! Head over and pick up your My Monthly Hero kit and add-ons today!
