October My Monthly Hero - Release Blog Hop + Giveaway!

It's Hero Arts My Monthly Hero release day, and oh my goodness is the October kit adorable!! I am so in love with all of the images in this stamp set. And the layered tree die. And the shimmery ink. And the iridescent stars. And the glitter paper. Yup! Kit perfection!!


Here's a look at one of the projects I created this month. Of course I had to make this adorable skater wearing purple and green, because hello I am me! I colored her with my Copics. I colored the ice with blue and gray Copics as well, then went over it with the shimmery iridescent ink included in the kit. I just squeezed a little out onto my craft mat (an acrylic block or palette would work great as well), and painted it on with a paintbrush. It's super hard to photograph but in real life it is spectacular!


I used some of the silver glitter paper in the kit for the background, and added a fun star embellishment with a dot of liquid glue.

If you'd like to see more of the cards I created this month, take a look at the October kit landing page. I'll share more details about these cards over the next few days.



And here's a look at the full October My Monthly Hero kit - so much goodness!



Now it's time to hop. I can't wait to see what all of these rockstars came up with! Like every month, there's a giveaway - be sure to comment on every blog in the hop, and a lucky winner drawn from the comments will receive a free kit! The winner will be announced on the Hero Arts blog. Comment by Sunday night, October 7th!
