December My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #5 and Giveaway!
We are back with another look at the December My Monthly Hero release! The kit will be available on Monday, December 4th at 1pm Eastern/10 am Pacific. We’ll be sharing ideas for using the main kit and optional add-on products all weekend long, so stay tuned for more project inspiration! Now let’s join Jess, who is sharing another look at this gorgeous kit.
Hello! Jess here with a Disney-inspired card using the new My Monthly Hero kit! I'll admit as soon as I saw this kit I was humming "A Whole New World" pretty much nonstop!
I was totally the little girl dreaming of a magic carpet ride when that movie came out in the early 90s! ;) So I decided to take that inspiration and make my own magic carpet ride scene. I started by taking a panel of watercolor paper cut 4.25" by 7.5" and blended it with Tangerine, Strawberry, Rose Madder, Orchid, and Indigo hybrid inks. I wanted to create a vivid ombre sunset so I applied several layers of colors with my blending tool to build up a bright background.
Then I placed the carpet stamp on my acrylic block but I curved it just slightly on the block to give it more of a "flying" look! ;) I stamped it on watercolor paper with Versamark and then heat-embossed it with brass embossing powder. I fussy cut the carpet and then watercolored it using the Hero Arts dot palette! Finally I stamped the sand dunes and sentiment onto a golden cardstock that's included in the kit and heat-embossed it with the same brass embossing powder. I fussy cut it and then adhered it over the ombre sky. To finish the card I adhered the carpet with foam mounting tape and trimmed off the edge. The perfect scene for a magic carpet ride, right? :)
