My Monthly Hero April Card Kit--Rainbow Fun

Hi Everyone!

I'm back with a project for the Addicted to CAS Challenge--code word: Rainbow.  I am also joining in with the A Blog Named Hero Anything Goes Challenge.


I'm using stamps and dies from the My Monthly Hero Card Kit for April from Hero Arts.  This is my first time purchasing this kit and I'm so happy I did.   I had been curious about the kits for awhile, and when I first saw those fun party dresses, I knew I had to try it out this month.  This is everything you get in the main kit for $34.99.   A huge value, I think.  They also have some great add-ons like stamp sets, dies and stencils that coordinate with the main kit.  Unfortunately, this kit is sold out, but if you're interested, you can sign up for Hero Arts' blog updates to get the latest news on the next kit.  Oh, and Hero Arts did not ask me to talk about this, I'm just a happy customer :).  


Now, on to my project......


I chose to do colors for the skirt in a "loose" rainbow order with more of a tropical feel.  Super CAS, but I think the skirt is all the focal point you need.  I was tempted to add some fun enamel dots, but then I stopped myself, LOL!


Here's a closer look at the skirt.  Die cutting it and layering it on top of the main stamped image gives it a little more life while still keeping the card clean and simple.  I added my own black "belt" with a Memento marker.  I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to color in the skirt and brushed a little bit of water on first to help the colors blend a little.  I purposely didn't color everything in to give the skirt an even more bouncy look.  I used Hero Arts Black Dye Ink to stamp all the elements.  This ink works really well when you're using any kind of watercoloring technique--no worries about black ink smearing.



Thanks for joining me today!
