My Monthly Hero December 2023

Hello everyone and welcome to the My Monthly Hero countdown for December 2023! There are so many incredible cards created with this kit. I know you will find a lot of inspiration over the next couple days.

Today I'm showcasing a card that features the December 2023 My Monthly Hero Premium Kit. The Numbers stamp set is a great addition to the main alphabet kit, and there are so many uses for it! For my card, I created my own background with the individual number stamps. I stamped them randomly with Hero Arts Embossing and Watermark Ink, then heat embossed with White Embossing Powder. This was all done on the Watercolor paper that comes with the kit.

I then watercolored the background using the included Watercolor Pencils and brush. They blend so well and the color was easy to re-wet and manipulate as I wanted for the background. Once the watercoloring was dry, I splattered it with the included Gold Glimmer Metallic Ink.

For the main images, I used the main kit Alphabet Cover Plate Die to cut the HBD letters from Paradise cardstock. The balloons were stamped from the main kit XL Alphabet with Intensified Black ink and colored with Pool Party and Splash Reactive Inks. "40 is just a number" is from the Premium Kit Numbers stamp set. I accented the letters and the shadows of the clouds with the Sparkle Lacquer Pen.

I also made this version, but realized my background was upside down... woops! But you all know I like to share my mistakes, too. So here she is in all her glory!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the Hero Arts inspiration!
