Countdown to My Monthly Hero August 2021

Hey Hey everyone! It’s time to Countdown to the new My Monthly Hero kit from Hero Arts! Are you ready for some colorful inspiration!? Here we go!

Do you know what one of my favorite products is ?

Did you guess stencils? You got it !

And do you know what one of my favorite things to do is?

Did you guess ink blend? You are on a roll!

Now how about a backwards rainbow? I forgot how awesome these look when the purple is towards the top instead of the bottom. Kind of deceiving at first.

I used all Hero Hues Reactive Inks including Taffy, Creamsickle, Lemon Drop, Green Apple, Pool Party and Purple Galaxy.

I then added flicks of Metallic Glimmer Ink for sparkle.

Looking at this in another way, I can kind of see a 70’s vibe with the right colors.

This card is finished off with a sentiment heat embossed in Gold Glitter Embossing Powder on Pitch Black cardstock. Just look how that black pops right off the card. Pure goodness right there, don’t ya think?

Hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration!

Don’t forget to visit for the Hero Arts blog for more inspiration and check out Day 1 of the countdown.

Tune in Monday for the whole kit reveal!
