Hero Arts May My Monthly Hero Countdown

Hello friends!! Welcome to day 2 of the May My Monthly Hero Countdown!! How much are you loving all these projects so far, aren’t they amazing!!

I’m sure by now you can tell that there is a tropical underwater theme to this month’s kit. ❤️I my heart is aching to travel again especially to Hawaii and I had so much fun traveling there in my mind with today’s card.

To create this card I first stamped the front of an A2 top-folding card base made from Lapis cardstock with the coral reef stamp rom the kit’s stamp set in Navy Shadow Ink. I then stamped a shell and star fish in Navy to balance the scene.

Next, I stamped several fish in INTENS-ified Black Ink onto Dove White cardstock and then colored the images in with copics. Once I had finished coloring the fish, I then die cut them out with the matching dies. Next, I adhered the fish to the front of the card and then finished the car by stamping a sentiment tin Navy.

I hope you enjoyed my card!! Be sure to stop by again on Monday, May 3rd to see the whole kit and check out the inspirational blog hop!!!
