Cards Hero Arts Stencils

Countdown to the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero Kit for June 2023

Hello my friends! It’s time to countdown to the next My Monthly Hero Kit from Hero Arts! Are you ready to make a splash!?

I showing inspiration using the stencil that is included in the Premium Kit option! It’s a gem!

I ink blended each layer using the following Hero Hues Reactive Inks:

  • Taffy
  • Creamsicle
  • Lemon
  • Key Lime Fizz
  • Splash
  • Grape Slush

Then I lightly went over the background with those same colors to have a full colored background.

Next, I took a White Posca Paint Pen and added highlights to the shells to really make them pop!

I created a frame for my background using the Nested Rectangles die and added it over the top with foam tape.

The sentiment is also a part of the MMY Kit in which I stamped in Pitch Black ink and cut out with the coordinating die.

I finished off with some sequins that is included in the Premium option as well.

This may be one of my new favorite cards I created! Hope you like it too!

Head to the Hero Arts blog for more inspiration and enter in the giveaway.
