April My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #3 + Giveaway
Hello and welcome as we continue the countdown to the release of the April My Monthly Hero Kit! Release day is Monday, April 1 at 1pm Eastern/10am Pacific. We will be here throughout the weekend, sharing plenty of inspiration before the launch. Now let's join Nichol for another look at this fabulous kit.
Hello friends! Today I'm sharing a die cut scene card created with the April 2019 My Monthly Hero Kit. The stamps and dies in the kit work together perfectly for incredible scene building.
I started my card by painting a night sky background with Hero Arts Pewter Glimmer Metallic Ink, Blue Glimmer Metallic Ink, and Black Liquid Watercolor. I wetted down the inks with a bit of water and blended them to build the night sky.
Charcoal Ink and a blending brush were used to add distressing to the die cuts.
Behind the tall Plum die cut buildings, Chestnut Cardstock was adhered for a two-tone effect. The buildings were die cut again from Mustard Cardstock and the windows were inlaid. The buildings were adhered to the card with foam adhesive.
A sentiment from the main kit was stamped on the moon with Black Ink.
Nuvo Crystal Drops in White Blizzard were applied to the windows for a shiny, glittery effect. The sky was finished with white pen marks for "stars".
I hope this has inspired you to build some die cut scene cards with the April My Monthly Hero kit!
