May 2021 My Monthly Hero Release + Blog Hop!

Hi everybody! I'm here hopping along with Hero Arts as we launch the May 2021 My Monthly Hero kit and add-ons. I love love LOVE this month's release!!! Yes, I have been known to say that every single month. But this month I mean it EVEN MORE than every other month. Ha! The theme this month is "under the sea," and all of the products are completely gorgeous!

For my cards today I worked with some of the fabulous add-ons.


This card features the Seashells Fancy Dies. They are so pretty! I began by die cutting them from watercolor paper, then inking them up using my Taffy, Thistle and Pool Party Reactive Inks.


Once they were completely dry, I randomly added Sand Embossing Powder. I love how this looks!

The background is done with the Water Flow Slimline Stencil, again with Thistle and Pool Party inks. I ink blended, then spritzed lightly with water.


Now it's time to hop! There's an amazing lineup of artists today! Be sure to visit as many as you can - each comment you leave enters you in a drawing for a $50 gift card to the Hero Arts store.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Here's a look at the entire release! I don't use affiliate links on my blog - if you're going to shop, be sure to click from one of the amazing artists in the hop to support them.
