Hero Arts My Monthly Hero | June 2019 - Hello Friend

Hello there, today we are celebrating the release of the Hero Arts June 2019 My Monthly Hero Kit and add-ons. It is a jungle theme this month and perfect for lots of different occasions. We are doing something a little different this month and not having an actual blog hop but there is still tons of inspiration to be had. There will be links to everyone sharing inspiration today, over on the Hero Arts Blog and also a chance to win a kit over there.
 
 
I did share a card over on the Hero Arts Blog using the elephant, coordinating frame cuts and the fabulous stencil that is in the kit. You can see that here. The cards that I am sharing today, use the main kit again, plus Reactive Inks.
 
 
I started off my card by creating the background. I took a panel of watercolour paper and blended the Reactive Inks at the top. I used a light layer of Key Lime Fizz first, blending towards white further down the panel and then Green Apple at the top. I took one of the leaf images from the main stamp set and stamped this across the top with the Green Apple ink, I wanted to keep it fairly subtle so I used a light hand with the ink. I then splattered on some water to get the reaction, followed by White Liquid Watercolor. I then set the piece aside to dry.
 
 
I took the branch and toucan images from the main kit stamp set and stamped these on to white cardstock using Intense Black ink. I coloured them with Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies section) and fussy cut them out with scissors. For my design, I didn't want the white border but there are coordinating frame cuts in the kit if you wanted to use them. I stamped the sentiment from the set on to the background panel and then adhered it flat to a top folding card base. I then added the branch and toucan on top with foam tape.

  1. I just love how you focused on the top half of the card. The bottom is a mystery---what is on the jungle floor? Who knows, but the bird and his habitat are amazing!

  13. Over both of your cards and that pop of green behind the Toucan is a great idea would this card be what someone calls a case card? I love them both equally though. Great job Michelle x
