Hero Arts | July 2022 My Monthly Hero Countdown to Creativity

Hello there and welcome to Hero Arts My Monthly Hero July 2022 Countdown to Creativity. For the next few days, we will be sharing peeks using the July 2022 My Monthly Hero Kit. Release day is Tuesday, 5th July 2022. This month we are going all tropical!

The stamp set in the kit this month features fabulous colour/stamp layering flamingos. I stamped them using the ink cubes that come in the kit. I started off with my base layer of Peony, followed by the middle layer of Cotton Candy and then finished up with Azalea for the legs and details on the feathers. The last layer was their eyes and bottom of the beak which was stamped in Intens-ified Black Ink. The image was then die cut out using the coordinating die in the kit.

I die cut three Nesting Circle Infinity Dies from white cardstock. Two slightly larger for the card base and then the smaller one for the panel. On this piece I added ink blending for sort of a beach type scene (but very soft and non defined). Using Ink Blending Brushes, I blended on Sand Core Ink for the sand, Splash and Blue Hawaii Reactive Inks for the water and Pool Party Reactive Ink for the sky. 

You can barely see them in the photos, but I stamped two clouds in the sky (from the same kit stamp set) using the residual Pool Party ink on my ink blending brush. I took the sentiment in the set (part of a larger sentiment but I masked parts of it off) and stamped it in the sky using Intens-ified Black Ink. The panel was adhered to the card base with thin foam tape and then the flamingos added on top with more thin foam tape.

This is such a fun kit! These inks layer up perfectly for the flamingos and if you struggle with stamp layering (I do!), this one did layer up pretty easily for me. I will have another card using the kit to share with you on Tuesday, but in the mean-time, please head over to the Hero Arts Blog for more inspiration and a chance to win a kit! I will be back a little later with another post (sorry for the multiple posts today but I hope you enjoy the inspiration!).
