February My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #5 + Giveaway!

by Clare Prezzia February 04, 2018 278 Comments

The countdown to the release of the February My Monthly Hero Kit continues! Release day is Monday, February 5th at 1pm Eastern/10 am Pacific. Let's join Clare for another look at this wonderful kit...

There's so many great bird images in the kit this month that I almost missed some pretty feather images. Luckily, I was itching to pull out the trusted and true rock-'n-roll technique, and I realized the feathers would work beautifully with it!

I stamped a row of feathers on some white cardstock, inking them first with Mint Julep, and then rolling the edges around in Dusty Blue. I then cut a strip out the cardstock, and used it as an opening to feature some of the beautiful kit woodgrain paper.  

I heat embossed a sentiment in White on Black cardstock, and then cut the strip out. The bottom of the strip was tailored off by doing some partial die cutting with the Tag Frames Infinity Dies.

To finish off, I added a few gems, and then added some little black dots here and there with a pen.

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 the countdown posts, and announce the winner first thing Monday morning, February 5th, before the kit launches at 1pm Eastern. The more you comment, the more chances to win!

Good luck!
