My Monthly Hero Kit April 2017

Hello everyone.  I thought I would share a card I made with pieces from the My Monthly Hero April 2017 card kit that Hero Arts released.

I really like this stamp set because of the details of fashion.  In my video which you can watch here, you will see that the only thing I would have liked  is to have a male figure as well.

I used a Winnie & Walter stencil on top of some Hero Arts wood grain paper.  This paper was cut at 3.75 x 5.  I mixed some Faber Castell Glass Bead and Glitter Paste with two new colors from the Tim Holtz Oxide Ink line.  Worn Lipstick and Cracked Pistachio.  I mixed both colors and layered it on the wood grain paper.  I peeled up the stencil and washed it immediately along with the craft mat.  If you let it dry on them, it could ruin them.

I then cut some MFT Bubblegum Pink card stock to 4 x 5.25.  I placed the stenciled paper on top of the Bubblegum pink paper and propped it up with some fun foam. It was adhered withs some double sided scor tape.

I then used a stitched oval die from Lawn Fawn on some white card stock through the Big Shot machine. Then stamped out the dress and cut that out with the die cutting machine also.  The paper from the dress is from some scratch paper I had in my stash.

I then took the pieces of stamps for the legs, head and arms and stamped those on the white oval.  Adhered the dress on top of the body parts to form the woman. I then used the mint green ribbon to make a bow.  This is always hard with my big man hands.

After everything was put together, I used some Tombow Mono Glue to to adhere the card to the card base cute at 4.25 x 11  inches and folded in half.

I hope you enjoy this card.  If you are interested in any of the products used to make this card please see the list of affiliate links below:
