Hero Arts | March 2023 My Monthly Hero Countdown to Creativity

Hello there and welcome as we countdown to the release of the Hero Arts March 2023 My Monthly Hero Kit. The Classic and Premium Kit release Monday, 6th March 2023. We are sharing inspiration today and all weekend long using both of the kits. 

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. Please see below for my full disclosure.

My card today uses the Premium Kit. I started off by taking a panel of watercolour paper and die cutting the window die from the Premium Kit on top. I then coloured the frame piece using Hero Arts Liquid Watercolours in the new Neon Brights colours, keeping some of the areas without colour. Orange and Green are part of the Premium Kit, but I also used Sunshine, Red, Purple and Pink. Mixing them to get some new shades. 

I then stamped the Hero Arts Burlap Bold Prints on to another piece of watercolour paper (just so that the cardstocks matched) using Hero Arts Intens-ified Black Ink. It was cut into a strip and adhered to the bottom of a Hero Arts Acetate Card Base. The die cut and watercoloured piece was then adhered on top using thin foam tape. To neaten up the bottom edge, I added a strip of Hero Arts Pitch Black Cardstock

I took the sentiment from the kit stamp set (in both the Classic & Premium Kit) and stamped it on to Pitch Black Cardstock using Hero Arts Embossing & Watermark Ink. I applied Hero Arts White Embossing Powder and heat set. It was die cut using Hero Arts Nesting Circle Infinity Dies before adhering to the card inside the frame window. 

I did die cut panels to go inside to card to cover up the adhesive but I really love the look of seeing through the card! Unfortunately though, the acetate and neon colours together were difficult to photograph!
