February My Monthly Hero Release + Giveaway!

This month's My Monthly Hero kit from Hero Arts is a swinging good time!! This kit seriously makes me want to put on the big band music and do the Charleston....


For this card I went nutty with the Gold Glitter embossing powder. It's not included in the main kit, but it pairs really well. But what IS in the kit? Some awesome, mirror-like gold cardstock (silver, too!), which looks incredible die cut with the BEAUTIFUL background die in the kit! The fun gold and black confetti I used on my cardm and as prop around the card is in the kit, too!


I love the little swinging couple above, but there's also some really sophisticated images that are a ton of fun to color, too.


I got out my Copics for this one, for some really simple coloring. I used a little Orchid ink sponged around the oval to make it pop. And speaking of popping - here's a close-up of the background of this card. I used the kit's die to do a black on black background. I love the fun, subtle texture it gives the card in real life!


For this final card, I used the stencil that's included in the kit for the background. It's a smaller-sized stencil, perfect for using on a card front. I used my Life Changing Blender Brushes from Picket Fence Studio to apply Orchid ink.



I made these cards for the kit page over on the Hero Arts blog, fun!


Here's a look at the full kit:



I think this one's going to go quick, so be sure to grab it asap!
