Hero Arts March My Monthly Hero Countdown

Hero Arts March My Monthly Hero Countdown

Hello friends!! It’s time for a new My Monthly Hero Countdown and today is first day!! Wahoo!!

If you are a book lover this month’s kit is for you!! The included stamp set is filled with so many creative and inspiring images that is sure to send your book lovin heart soaring!! Plus the additional items in the kit, especially the rainbow ink pad, are AWESOME!!

The card I created for today’s countdown not only features the kit’s stamp set but also the rainbow reactive ink pad!!

To create this card I first inked up the tree stamp with the rainbow reactive ink pad and then stamped it onto a panel (4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″) of Bristol paper with my MISTI. I then spritzed the stamp with water and then stamped immediately again onto the panel. I then used a brush to spread out the ink and color the tree.

When I finished coloring the image I then dried the panel with my heat tool and then inked up the stamp again with the rainbow ink pad and stamped the panel once more. Next I adhered the panel onto an A2 top-folding card base made from Pebble cardstock. I then stamped the boy from the set in INTENS-ified Black Ink, copic colored him, and die cut him out with the matching die.

I then trimmed off his feet (sorry boy) and used a white gel pen to cover up the remaining black ink from his feet on the top of his head. Next, I stamped my sentiment in INTENS-ified Black Ink onto Pebble cardstock and then trimmed it down to strip. Lastly, I finished the card by adhering the boy and my sentiment to my card front with foam adhesive.

I hope you enjoyed my card! Thank you so much for stopping by!
