Happy Wednesday!! Did you get a chance to purchase the May Hero Arts Underwater Adventure Monthly Kit? I was blessed to purchase it before it sold out! These kits sale out rapidly and are not available again from Hero Arts. This is how Hero Arts describes the May Hero Arts Underwater Adventure Monthly Kit:
“Join us for an underwater adventure with this month’s May My Monthly Hero Kit! The stamp set has mermaids, undersea life and sentiments that go along with them. You can easily create beautiful scenes with the coordinating dies and frame cuts. Using the stencil you can create the feeling of movement that is subtle or dramatic. There are ink cubes, papers and a specialty iridescent ink that all work together effortlessly. Sequins add a bit of sparkle and with the acetate sheets that are included you can make stunning shaker cards that create a window into your underwater world.”
The kit has wonderful products, and I am sharing a card I made with it.
Here is a photo of the kit:
To create the card, I used three of Tim Holtz’s Distress Oxide Inks to sponge the colors onto a piece of Neehan Solar White Card Stock. Next, I spritzed water onto the stencil from the kit and laid it over my sponging. I love the look it gives. Then I added the sentiment with VersaMark Ink and white embossing powder, which I heat set.
Next, I cut out two fancy ovals using the Reef Border and Frame Fancy Dies, which is an “add-on” for the Hero Arts Underwater Adventure Monthly Kit. I glued the two cutouts together for more weight. (As of this posting, this die is still available.)
I used three of the stamps from the kit to stamp with Black Ink and color with Copic Sketch Markers.
To finish the card, I attached the colored and stenciled piece to an A2 white card base. Then I applied a double layer of foam tape to the oval cutouts and attached them over the stenciled piece. Lastly, I added the elements in the above photo to the card and three sequins.
Tell me what you think of the card? I hope you draw inspiration from it!
Because the Reef Border and Frame Fancy Die is the only product that can be purchased as of this posting, I am only showing that product with a link.
