March 2019 My Monthly Hero is Here + GIVEAWAY!
There's something fishy going on at Hero Arts this month - and we mean that in the best possible way!
Our March release is packed with our favorites from the aquarium. From fishbowls, to betta fish, to turtles, we've got you covered! We even have curious cats who cannot resist saying hello to their fishy friends. And be sure to take a closer look at the incredibly gorgeous Jellyfish Party Bold Prints stamp and Paper Layering Seahorses dies - both are sure to be best sellers!
Our kit this month includes everything you need to create a beautiful aquarium scene. The showstopper is the Aquarium Fancy Die! Put this die cut piece in front of all the aquarium wonders from the 6 x 8 clear set. And have fun playing with the new Reactive Ink Cubes this month in Sea Glass, Blue Water and Sea Salt colors. They blend like a dream, and yield fun results when sprayed with water! Rounding out the kit is a package of blue and green droplets, perfect as bubbles, or to mimic the stones at the bottom of your papercrafted aquarium!

Now let's take a look at some projects Janette created with this month's kit!
After the cold and wet winter many of us have been experiencing, I am sure this month's kit has more than just myself dreaming of the tropics and the deep blue sea!
Create this project by ink blending a scant 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" Dove White cardstock panel with the kit included Water Reactive Inks in Blue Water for the top half and Sea Glass at the bottom.
Mask sun rays and ink blend with kit included Water Reactive Sea Salt to brighten area. I masked one ray at a time with Avery Removable Labels, peeked to check lightness and then moved to the next. Once all rays were complete, I sprinkled panel with water and allowed it to dry as I moved to the next step.
I stamped several of the silhouette style sea images in various Ombre Inks to liven them up. (No line stamping would be a fun technique with silhouette images too! Just stamp in a very light ink color and use the border as a guideline to fill in the image.) Stamp urchin and sentiment in Black Dye Ink and die cut all images. Circle sentiment with Nesting Circle Infinity Dies. Stamp diver directly onto panel in Soft Granite.
Just keep swimming, my friends!
