February 2018 My Monthly Hero - Release + Giveaway!

It's Hero Arts My Monthly Hero time!! This month is for the birds. Or for the bird lovers, anyway!

For my first project, I played with one of the optional add-on stamp sets, called Come Fly With Me.


I really love this beautiful stamp set. It has wonderful, inspiring messages - which is the focus of my card. I used the new Sunburst Bold Prints for the background. I didn't actually do a perfect job stamping and embossing the background, but I didn't mind - I'm liking the somewhat "distressed" look. I added lots of watercolor - I used our gorgeous new Liquid Watercolors, which will be in the Hero Arts store on February 15!


Here's a look at the Come Fly With Me stamp set I used:
This is the Sunburst Bold Print:


And this is the full February 2018 My Monthly Hero kit. It's so much fun!
