May My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #4 + Giveaway
It's time for our fourth countdown peek! The May My Monthly Hero kit will be available on Monday, May 4 at 1pm Eastern/10am Pacific. Now let's join Janette for another look at this uplifting kit!
Hello, Hero friends! I have had so much fun creating with all the happiness included in this month's kit! It is a ray of sunshine, to be sure!
To recreate this project, or something like it, stamp all images in Intens-ified Black ink on Smooth Bristol cardstock. Color images with watercolor brush markers. Set aside to dry.
Fussy cut images and adhere to card panel, popping up a few for added dimension. Stamp sentiment in Intense-ified Black and adhere completed panel to folded card base.
This month's kit contains some fabulous adornments for envelopes, and envelopes too! I took a risk on my own and used the darling little snail mail stamp as a wax stamp. I melted a few wax beads in blue and green, and believe it or not - white, together and poured them onto the envelope. Gently drop in the snail stamp while wax is hot and center, if necessary. Allow wax to cool and then gently peel out stamp. Some wax colors, like ink, will stain the stamp. Staining is cosmetic only and does not affect stamp performance. My stamp is still in amazing shape and works perfectly with ink, but this was only my result and is not a recommended use of the high quality photopolymer stamps Hero Arts offers. If you give it a go, please do so at your own risk!
