Hero Arts | June 2022 My Monthly Hero Countdown to Creativity

Hello there and welcome to the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero June 2022 Countdown to Creativity. For the next few days, we will be sharing sneak peeks using the new My Monthly Hero Kit. Release day is Monday, 6th June 2022. This month is all about mermaids and the ocean and I know it is going to be very popular!

For my card today, I am using the clear stamp set that comes in the kit. I started off by stamping the fish from the set on to white cardstock with Hero Arts Intens-ified Black Ink. I then coloured it with Copic Markers (although I did not use it on my card, I took inspiration for the colours from the Mermaid Palette Ink Pad that you get in the kit). I then die cut it out using the coordinating die. 

I die cut three Hero Arts Nesting Circle Infinity Dies circles from white cardstock - two larger for the card base and one smaller for the panel. I added Copic Marker colouring to the smaller one, creating an ocean, adding in some hand-drawn seaweed. If you didn't want to freehand draw it, there is a couple of seaweed stamps in the set. The two larger circles were adhered together at the top to create a circle card base (and a small amount cut off the bottom so that it stands up) and the panel added on top with thin foam tape. 

The fish was added on top with more thin foam tape. I stamped the sentiment from the set 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. It was cut in to a strip before adhering to the card with more foam tape. To finish off, I added a few Raindrops and then white gel pen highlights.
