April My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #5 + Giveaway
Hello and welcome as we continue the countdown to the release of the April My Monthly Hero Kit! Release day is Monday, April 6 at 1pm Eastern/10am Pacific. Now let's join Channin for another look at this versatile kit!
Hello friends! It's Channin here with a new card idea featuring the April 2020 My Monthly Hero Kit. The products in this kit were so fun to play with! I especially adored the stencil included! It is so versatile, you can use it to create not only a desert scene but you can also use it to create an ocean as well!
For this card, I first taped the stencil over a 4 1/8” x 5 3/8” panel of Dove White cardstock. I also taped off the sky from the water and ink blended the water with Blue Hawaii and Splash Reactive Inks. I then adjusted the tape to mask off the water and then ink blended the sky with Lemon Drop, Creamsicle, Fruit Punch, Taffy, and Berry Smoothie Reactive Inks. Once I had finished ink blending the panel, I then removed the stencil and then ink blended the panel again with the same colors only lightly this time.
Next, I stamped some of the images from the stamp set onto white cardstock. I stamped the mountain in Pumpkin Pie and Cup O’ Joe. I stamped the jellyfish three times in several Reactive Inks (Lemon Drop + Creamsicle, Taffy + Berry Smoothie, and Creamsicle + Fruit Punch). I then stamped the shark and dolphin in Fog and Wet Cement. Once I had finished stamping all the images I die cut them with the matching dies.
I then stamped the panel with a sentiment from the set in INTENS-ified Black ink. Next, I cut a two inch slit at the top of the water line with a craft knife and inserted the mountain. I then adhered the panel onto an A2 top-folding card base made from Pitch Black cardstock with Precision Glue. Lastly, I adhered the die cuts and finished the card by adding some details to the shark and dolphin with a fine black marker.
I hope you enjoyed my card! Thank you so much for stopping by!
