Cards Distress Oxide Inks Embossing Hero Arts

Hero Arts Monthly Kit

Happy Sunday!!! My card today is completely inspired by Nichol Spohr. I pretty much cased her card. I’ll link to her blog here for you to check it out. Her card made me purchase my first Hero Arts Monthly Kit and I absolutely love it! The sprays are absolutely amazing in person! These pictures really do not do this card justice. You can be as messy as you want with it all and it just makes the card even better! 
All supplies will be listed down below.
I started out using some Tim Holtz Watercolor cardstock but the smooth side. Nichol mentions in her video that there will be a lot on this card so I opted for something really sturdy and could handle it. Then I did a galaxy background using Wilted Violet, Peacock Feathers, Faded Denim and Black Soot Distress Oxides. Next I sprayed the blue and silvery sprays onto it that come with this kit. It’s messy!! I let it sit for about a minute then dabbed the excess off with a paper towel. I finished the galaxy off by flicking some white specks onto it. You cannot imagine the shimmer this has at this point.
Next, I heat embossed the stars patterns with silver embossing powder and stamped my boy on the moon with Versafine ink because its nice and crisp. I quickly sprinkled some clear embossing powder onto my black image so it had some shine. Then added a couple more star clusters and heat embossing with white embossing powder. I don’t think I’ve even done so much heat embossing on a card before. 
I stamped the sentiment in Versamark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The clouds are also stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder but on vellum which this technique is new to me and I used the coordinating die to cut out the clouds. I added the clouds by running them through my Xyron sticker maker and attaching to the card. Finally, I trimmed the card down to 4″ x 5 1/4″ and added it to my base which is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and used my double sided tape. I wanted something really strong to hold this puppy down.
Seriously, I just cannot capture the real shine and sparkle this card has!
