March My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #3 + Giveaway
Hello and welcome as we continue the countdown to the release of the March My Monthly Hero Kit! Release day is Monday, March 4 at 1pm Eastern/10am Pacific. We will be here throughout the weekend, sharing plenty of inspiration before the launch. Now let's join Nichol for another look at this fabulous kit.
Hello friends! I'm so excited to be sharing an aquarium card with you today featuring the My Monthly Hero March 2019 Kit. The die cut aquarium images were colored with Copic Markers and the solid fish, rock, fossil, and seaweed images were inked with dye inks, die cut, and assembled "inside" the aquarium.
The background of the aquarium was inked with Blue Water and Sea Glass Reactive Inks, spritzed with water from a Distress Sprayer, and set aside to air dry. The school of fish image from the main kit was stamped three times on the background using the Blue Water Reactive Ink.
The aquarium die from the Main Kit was die cut three times from smooth white cardstock.
One of the die cut aquarium frames was adhered over the background.
Images from the main kit were stamped with Hero Arts inks and die cut with the coordinating dies. The following ink color combinations were used for the fish and other images:
Blue Fish: Cornflower, Reactive Blue Water
Sharks: Soft Granite
Most of the images were adhered directly to the background. Eyes were added with a black pen.
The top frame images were colored in with the following Copic Marker color combinations:
Leaves: G21, G24, G28
Seaweed: YG21, YG23, YG17
Red Coral: R35, R39
Orange Coral: YR04, YR09
A piece of acetate was stamped with a sentiment from the main kit using White StazOn Ink and sandwiched between the remaining two frames with the colored frame on top. The rest of the fish were tucked into the top design and eyes were added to the remaining fish.
I hope this has inspired you to build a colorful, layered aquarium with the March My Monthly Hero kit!
