I shared this card using the My Monthly Hero kit on my blog this weekend:
And today I’m sharing a card using more of the kit plus some of my favorite add-ons!
I fell hard for the Seashells Fancy Dies and wanted to make them the feature of my card so I die-cut them with watercolor paper and loosely painted them with my Daniel Smith watercolors. I used lots of water to get a soft look and then added splatters when I was finished. I set them aside to dry while I worked on the rest of the card. I die-cut the Swirling Tide Border Fancy Die from Hero Hues Mist cardstock and then blended the edges of a second A2 panel of Mist cardstock with Pool Party and Blue Raspberry Reactive Inks. Then I splattered both panels with white paint and teal watercolor. After everything was dry I also splattered the shells and panels with metallic gold paint.
Once the panels were dry I stamped the sentiment with embossing ink and heat-embossed it with gold embossing powder. Then I stamped the seahorse and coral with embossing ink and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder for a little contrast. I adhered the Swirling Tide Border over the blended panel and then adhered my shells with a mix of liquid glue and foam mounting tape for a little dimension! I love all the different textures and how the gold catches the light when you tilt the card! The add-ons work perfectly with the kit!
And that’s it for me! Head over and pick up your May My Monthly Hero kit and add-ons today before it sells out!
