Hero Arts | March 2024 My Monthly Hero Countdown to Creativity

Hello there and welcome as we countdown to the release of Hero Arts March 2024 My Monthly Hero on Monday. We are sharing inspiration today and all weekend long using the new kits. We are heading to Japan this month! 

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

My card today uses the Hero Arts March 2024 My Monthly Hero Classic Kit. I started off by taking a panel of Hero Arts Deluxe Smooth White Cardstock and stamped the first layer of the mountains from the stamp set on top, using Hero Arts Intens-ified Black Ink. I then stamped the next layer on top, followed by the water below. 

These images are meant to be stamped in varying colours to build up a scene but I wanted to go for a silhouette look today! Using Blending Brushes, I blended on Hero Arts Core Inks in Pitch Black, Nautical, Indigo and Amethyst. I die cut a Hero Arts Nesting Circle Infinity Die from masking paper and placed it in the sky. Using a Small Blending Brush, I added Hero Arts Unicorn White Pigment Ink around the edges to make moon glow. 

I removed the mask and stamped the crane image on top. I adhered the panel to a US A2 sized card base made from Hero Arts Pitch Black Cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the kit onto more black cardstock using Hero Arts Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink. I applied Hero Arts White Detail Embossing Powder and heat set. It was adhered to the card with Hero Arts Precision Glue. To finish off, I added white gel pen stars in the sky and reflections on the water.
