My Monthly Hero Kit


I have 2 cards to share using the same technique and a quick video below to show how I did it.  Basically, I stamped the background image from the kit on black cardstock and heat embossed with white embossing powder.


My Monthly Hero Kit


Using the landscape dies from the kit, I created this mountain scene.  I used the Hero Arts Infinity Squares to create a polaroid look and then stamped the sentiment.

For this card, I used the Hero Arts Infinity Circles to give it a different look...

I popped up the light house on pop dots for dimension and then added a simple sentiment from one of the add-on stamp set from this month, Color Layering Howling Wolf Stamp Set.


My Monthly Hero Kit


To achieve the color in the background, I used Copic markers very lightly.  Disclaimer....Alcohol Markers break down the embossing powder and it collects in the nib of your marker. I  have found that using the chisel end works for me because I don't use that end for anything else.  I also scribble off on scratch paper after I am done to remove some of the embossing powder.
