July My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #2 + Giveaway
Hello! We are continuing the countdown to the release of the July My Monthly Hero Kit! Release day is Monday, July 1 at 1pm Eastern/10 am Pacific. We will be here for the rest of the weekend, sharing inspiration before the launch. Now let's join Michelle for another look at this fabulous kit!
Hello, Michelle here and I am delighted to be sharing the second countdown idea with you today. What a wonderful kit this month! I have to be honest, I am definitely more of an indoor person but I love landscapes, so I was instantly drawn towards the trees and mountains in the main stamp set.
I stamped the first layer of mountains using Soft Granite Shadow Ink. Because I wanted the ink to be lighter, I stamped off first on to a scrap piece of paper and then stamped the residual ink on to the piece. I did this a few times to get the colour that I wanted. I then stamped the second layer with the full strength of Soft Granite Ink.
The mask was removed and the sky coloured using pale blue Copic Markers. I then stamped the birds using Charcoal Mid-Tone Shadow Ink. The sentiment was stamped using Intense Black Ink. I took a top-folding card base and embossed the next largest Nesting Circle Infinity Die on the front panel. The image panel was adhered on top with foam tape.
