Countdown to My Monthly Hero

Yipee!! It’s time for the countdown to the February 2021 My Monthly Hero kit and you will NOT be disappointed! Let’s just say I kind of want to jump into this card lol… and this is only the start!

Take a look at my card for you today… are you seeing them theme?

To create this card, I stamped some of the images from the kit in Hero Arts Intensified Black ink, colored with copic markers and cut out with the coordinating dies.

For my scene, I ink blended Taffy, Berry Smoothie Reactive Inks, for the water I blended Pool Party and Blue Raspberry and for the sandy beach I blended Soft Brown and Cup O’ Joe. I masked off each section using post it tape.

I created a window for my scene but die cutting a circle from a piece of black card stock and attaching to my blended panel with a tape runner. You could easily add foam tape and create a shaker card (which I might do on another card)

After attaching my images to the inside of my window, I lined my panel up into my Misti and stamped this sentiment.

Raise your hand if you want to go to a beach right now? ***raises hand wildly!***
