December My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #2 + Giveaway!

by Caly Person November 30, 2018 274 Comments

Welcome back to the countdown! The December My Monthly Hero Kit will be released Monday, December 3rd at 1pm Eastern/10am Pacific. Caly is here with another look at this fun kit!

Hello! This is Caly and I’m so excited to be sharing my first Hero Arts project with you! It’s all about fairies and dandelions this month and my card has a bit of both!

 

For today’s card, I stamped all the images on white cardstock using Intense Black ink and colored the images using Copic markers. 

0, B0000 (Wings), G00, BG24 (pants), V01, V12 (shirt), R20 (blush)
G21, G94, G14, G07 (dandelions), E41, E42, E50, E53, E31, E43, E23, E57 (brown for dandelions, mushroom and hair, R05, R24, R29 (mushrooms)

 

 

Once coloring was completed, I die-cut the images using the coordinating dies and added white gel accents to the images. I went over the wings and dandelion ends with Wink of Stella Clear shimmer ink to add some sparkle to those elements. 

 

To create the background, I masked of the bottom quarter of a blank card panel to ink-blend Aegean hybrid ink for the sky/background and Caramel hybrid ink for the ground. I added some additional sparkle by adding droplets of White Iridescent Shimmer Spray. I then adhered the various images to my ink-blended card panel to create my scene and added the sentiment to the bottom of the card using Intense Black ink. 

I hope you enjoyed my project today. There’s more inspiration to come before the kit is available so be sure to check back for more sneak peeks!  Have a wonderful day! 

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, and announce the winner first thing Monday morning, December 3rd, before the kit launches at 1 pm Eastern.
