April My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #1 + Giveaway
Hello and welcome as we begin the countdown to the release of the April My Monthly Hero kit! Release day is Monday, April 3rd at 1pm Eastern/10am Pacific. We’ll be here for the next three days, sharing ideas for using both the main kit, as well as new optional add-on products that will be available on Monday. And don’t forget to comment on each and every post as we’ll be giving away a kit on Monday morning, before the kit launches! In this post Michelle shares the first look at this fantastic kit!
What a great kit this month! It is filled with gorgeous images especially perfect for the women in your lives. Mothers, sisters, daughters, friends … there is something for everyone!
For my card today I started off with a piece of watercolour paper. I then took the ballerina dress from the main stamp set and stamped it repeatedly across the watercolour paper using Cotton Candy Mid-Tone Shadow Ink. I then took the Watercolour Dot Palette and added colour to the dresses using Quinacrodone Pink. I added the watercolour in a few layers to build up the intensity that I wanted. I then set this piece aside to dry.
Once dry, I took one of the sentiments from the You Are Fabulous Stamp Set, which is one of the fabulous add-ons, and stamped this below the dresses with Intense Black Ink. I took the pink shimmer cardstock from the kit and added a panel of this to the front of a white 4.25″ x 5″ card base. I then added the image panel on top with foam tape. To finish off, I added Blush Ombre Sequins and Clear Gemstones.
Win a kit before you can buy it! Just leave a comment on this (and every) Countdown to Creativity post. We’ll randomly draw one lucky winner from all the comments left across all countdown posts.
