April My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #4 + Giveaway
It's time for our fourth countdown peek! The April My Monthly Hero kit will be available on Monday, April 6 at 1pm Eastern/10am Pacific. Now let's join Michelle for another look at this wonderful kit!
As soon as I saw this kit, I thought sunset! I love creating sunsets with ink blending and I always think silhouetted images work so well with them. The stamp set in the kit is perfect for this type of technique!
I started off my card by taking a 4" x 5.25" panel of Hero Hues Dove White Premium Cardstock and masking off the bottom portion. I then die cut a piece of mask paper using one of the smaller dies in the Nesting Circle Infinity Dies set. This was placed where I wanted my sun to be and then using an ink blending brush, I blended ink on to the panel.
I started off by blending Lemon Drop Reactive Ink closest to the sun, followed by Creamsicle Reactive Ink and then Fruit Punch Reactive Ink towards to the top and sides. I felt that I wanted the red to be darker so I added on a layer of Hero Hues Ruby Pigment Ink to the very edges. I then removed the sun mask and blended over more Lemon Drop Reactive Ink.
I left the inks to dry for a little while whilst arranging my stamps in the Mini MISTI. I used one of the trees from the set, two kangaroos and one of the sentiments. Once arranged where I wanted them to be, I stamped them on to the panel using Intens-ified Black Ink. I did stamp them a few times, to get a nice dark impression. The panel was then simply adhered to a Dove White Top Folded Card using foam tape.
