Hero Arts May 2019 My Monthly Hero Kit Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello there, today we are celebrating the release of the May 2019 My Monthly Hero Kit and what a fantastic kit it is! It is especially geared to all us crafters but I love that there are lots of different crafty pursuits represented in this kit - paper crafters, painters, sewers, quilters, artists - they are all there! If you are following along in the shop, you should have arrived here from the Hero Arts Blog but I have the full list of participants below too, in case you get lost along the way.
 

This kit screamed rainbow at me as soon as I saw it! I especially love all of the craft tools and products in the main stamp set and wanted to try and use as many of those as I could on my card today. I started off by creating the background. I took a piece of Tim Holtz Silver Sparkle Alcohol Ink Cardstock and added Hero Arts Liquid Watercolour on to it to create a rainbow. I used the watercolours almost as they are out of the bottle, but I used a wet brush to help move the colour on the paper.
 
 
I used Pink, Orange, Dandelion, Leaf, Deep Ocean and Purple and overlapped the colours each time to help it blend. I then set the piece aside for a couple of hours to dry. I don't think it actually took this amount of time to dry but I wanted to be on the safe side! I placed the panel in my Mini MISTI and arranged the product images on top. I prepped the piece with an antistatic powder tool and then inked up the stamps with the new Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink that comes in the kit. The images were stamped down and then heat embossed with White Detail Embossing Powder.
 
 
I adhered the panel on to an A2 white card base with foam tape and then stamped the sentiment from the main stamp set on to Pitch Black Cardstock and again heat embossed in white. This was cut in to a strip and added to the card with more foam tape. To finish off, I added a few raindrops. This card has lots of sparkle and shine thanks to the silver sparkle cardstock and the liquid watercolours worked perfectly on it.
