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

Hello there, today we are celebrating the release of the Hero Arts August 2019 My Monthly Hero Kit. The kit has a fun medieval and magical theme to it. For the hop, you should have arrived here from Mariana but if you get lost along the way, I have the full list of participants below.
 
To start of with, I made a tag that I shared over on the Hero Arts Blog. I really love the magical elements in the kit and love the font on the sentiments especially. I started off by die cutting a Nesting Tag Infinity Die from watercolour paper and then creating a night sky/galaxy background at the top using various colours of Reactive Inks plus, navy and black to go on top.
 
 
I also added on some splatters of white, as well as the Iridescent White Shimmer Spray. I cut two further tags from white cardstock and partially cut these using the Nesting Cloudy Infinity Dies. These were added on to the background tag and then I stamped, coloured and die cut the unicorn from the main kit stamp set and added him on top. For more details on how I made the tag, please see the blog post here.
 

For my card today, I wanted to use the fantastic Fancy Castle Die from the main kit and combine it with the Dragons & Unicorns set which is an add-on this month. I started off by taking an A2 top folding card base and blending ink on to the top portion with blending brushes. I used Blue Hawaii and Blue Raspberry Reactive Inks. I then spritzed on a mist of White Iridescent Shimmer Spray (yes,I am obsessed with this again at the moment!) and set it aside to dry.
 
 
I took the Fancy Castle Die from the main kit and cut this from a panel of white cardstock. The die just cuts the top line, so you can have it at any height that you want. This was added to the card base with tape runner. I took the unicorn and shooting star images from the Unicorns & Dragons set and stamped these on to white cardstock with Intense Black Ink. They were coloured using Copic Markers and die cut out using the Unicorns & Dragons Frame Cuts.
 
 
I added the shooting star and unicorn to the card with foam tape and then stamped my sentiment. I wanted to use this card as generic happy birthday card so I took the sentiments from the Mix & Match Compliments set and stamped these on to Pitch Black Cardstock with Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink. I applied White Detail Embossing Powder and heat set. They were cut in to strips and added to the card with more foam tape. To finish off, I added dots of Spica glitter pen to the images.
