Birthday Sunset

Hello there, today I have to share using the new Hero Arts Colour Layering Palm Tree. I thought it would work well with a sunset, so I took inspiration from a card that I made back in 2017 and just changed it up slightly.

I first took the Hero Arts Nesting Circle Infinity Dies and cut a circle from a sheet of masking paper. I took a panel of white cardstock and placed the mask over it. I then blended inks inside to create the sunset. I used Lemon Drop, Creamsicle and Fruit Punch Reactive Inks. I then removed the mask.

I placed the panel in my Mini MISTI and stamped the images from the Hero Arts Color Layering Palm Tree Stamp Set on top with Hero Hues Black Ink. I used one of the more detailed layers of the tree, rather than the solid outline for some added interest. I then stamped the monkey so that he was climbing the tree. The panel was then adhered to an A2 white card base with foam tape.
I took the sentiment from the Hero Arts Chameleon Stamp & Cut Set and stamped it on to Hero Hues Pitch Black Cardstock with Hero Arts Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink. I applied Hero Arts White Detail Embossing Powder and heat set. This was cut in to a strip and added to the card with thin foam squares. To finish off, I added a few Lucy's Raindrops.

I think this would look good without the monkey too but I thought he was cute, so wanted to include him! Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you have a great week!
