May My Monthly Hero Release

Today is Hero Arts monthly release day, yay! And this month the release is so sweet and so much fun! It's all about sending mail to the people you care about. It's always great to receive happy mail, but these days? It is SUCH an uplifting thing to find a handmade card in your mailbox. And with this May My Monthly Hero kit, you can decorate the envelopes to make them just as happy as the card inside!


For my project today, I used one of the A7 envelopes included in the kit. I stamped all of the little images, then created masks to put over them, so I could ink blend some blue ink onto my scene without getting any on the images. I colored the images with Copic markers, and added the address for Hero Arts.

Now it's time to hop! Hero Arts will give away one $50 gift card, drawn from the comments left across the hop. Enter by Sunday, May 10th at 11:59pm pacific, and the winner will be announced on the Hero Arts blog the following week.
