February My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #2 + Giveaway

by Michelle Short February 01, 2019 400 Comments

It's time for our second February countdown peek of this month's My Monthly Hero Kit! The kit will be available on Monday, February 4th at 1pm Eastern/10am Pacific. Now let’s join Michelle, who is sharing another look at this wonderful kit!

Cheers by Michelle Short for Hero Arts

What a fabulous kit! I love the Art Deco feel to it and I think its great for lots of different occasions. For my card, I took the lady in the hat holding a martini image from the main stamp set and stamped this on to a panel of white cardstock with Intense Black Ink. I coloured her with Copic Markers, adding some shading around her for added interest. 

Cheers by Michelle Short for Hero Arts

I then took the 'cheers!' sentiment from the Deco Celebration set, which is an add-on set this month, and stamped this beside the image with the same black ink. To ground the image, I took a thin black strip of black cardstock and cut the end at an angle. This was added to the panel with liquid glue and then the panel was added to an A2 white card base. 

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, February 4th, before the kit launches at 10am Pacific. The more you comment, the more chances to win!

Good luck!
