October 2020 My Monthly Hero Release!

It's release day for the October My Monthly Hero kit and add-ons. I love everything this month!! It's inspired by Nordic folk art. LOVE!! 


For today's project, I made some ornament tags using the main kit. The stamps in the kit are solid images, so I used one of my favorite techniques. I stamped in Unicorn pigment ink on Sand cardstock, then colored with my colored pencils! I love how this turns out.


Just be sure the Unicorn ink is dry before you begin coloring. Once I had my scenes built, I assembled the ornaments, paper-piecing the toppers. I finished them off with a little twine. I think these would make adorable gift tags!



Here's a look at the full kit from today's release!


And the fabulous add-ons:

  2. Libby, these tags are adorsble, and so doable! Thanks, too, for the tip on stamping first in white ink. So many suggest coloring images first in white, but when you've got solid images, this is a perfect alternative!!

  4. Oh Libby, this is so sweet! I haven't tried the coloring over unicorn, yet--I assume you dry it first? (I have used white pencil, and then added the color)
