Hero Arts – August 2019 My Monthly Hero Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hi, Friends!

The August 2019 My Monthly Hero Kit is here!  I’ve used the kit to create a castle on a mountain top scene and added some magic with a unicorn.  This month’s theme is all things magical and fantasy! Be sure to check out the full release to see all of it!

Kit Contents:
6″ x 8″ Clear Stamp Set
17 Coordinating Frame Cuts
1 Fancy Castle Die
2 5.5″ x 8.5″ sheets of Mirri Matte Lava Purple Paper
2 5.5 x 8.5″ sheets of Parchment Paper
3 Glimmer Ink Pots (Gold, Purple, Red)
Dragon Scale Sequins

Kit Value: $83.49
Kit Cost: $34.99

To make my card today, I die-cut the castle and hilltop on white cardstock colored the castle with Copic markers to give it some color and dimension. 

Copic colors:  C0, C3, C5, C7, W0, W3, E31, R20, R43, R27, R39, Y38, Y00, Y08, G24, G21, G00, B00, BG15, B45, B27, V01, V04.

I began coloring the hillside by ink-blending with Green Hills ink. I slid scrap cardstock between the cuts and added a darker color at the top of each bump, if you will, to add dimension to the scene using Field Greens ink.  I also added some cardstock colored with C7 to back behind the windows for depth.

On another piece of cardstock, I ink-blended the sky using Soft Yellow, Cornflower, and Soft Pink ink.  Then I used a circle die from the Nested Circles Infinity Dies and die cut through both layers to accent the scene.  I added foam adhesive to the castle and hill to adhere over the sky background and added this to my cardbase. 

To finish my card, I stamped my sentiment and colored unicorn to add to the bottom of my card.  I hope you enjoyed this card!  Be sure to leave a comment below for your chance
