May My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #2 + Giveaway!
We are back for another countdown post, leading up to the release of the May My Monthly Hero kit!. Release day is Monday, May 7th at 1pm Eastern/10 am Pacific. We'll be sharing ideas for using both the main kit, as well as new optional add-on products that will be available on Monday. And don't forget to leave a comment on this and every post as we will be giving away a kit on Monday. Now let's join Michelle who is sharing another look at this fabulous kit...
Isn't this just a wonderful kit! It is perfect for so many occasions. I just love the frame die in the main kit (I think this is a big favorite among all of the Creative Team), so I wanted to use that for my card today.
I started off by creating my background. I took a piece of watercolour paper and using an ink blending tool, applied the Ombre Reactive Spring Day Ink Pad, which is an add-on this month. I used all three colours and blended them so it looks like soft grass and sky. I then sprinkled on some water, let it sit and picked up any excess with a paper towel. This was added to a white card base with tape runner.
I then took the frame die from the kit and die cut this from white cardstock. The frame was then added on to the card with foam tape. I took one of the sentiments from the main kit stamp set and stamped this on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. This was added to the card with a combination of tape runner and foam tape. To finish off, I added a few clear jewels.
