July My Monthly Hero kit

Hi there! Today I’m excited to be joining Hero Arts as they launch their July My Monthly Hero kit.MMH_Logo_TBThis month’s kit features a gorgeous ocean theme, with jellyfish, octopus and sea turtles, and lots of coral. Octopus are very trendy right now – who knew? Hero Arts is going to donate 10% of profits for our July 2016 MMH Kit to ocean preservation through the World Wildlife Foundation.
The Ombré Dolphin ink pad is brand new and inspired by the Pantone Color(s) of the Year, a pink to blue spectrum. It is exclusive to the kit through 2016.Hero Arts-July Card KitI embossed a few images from the stamp set included in the kit onto Tim Holtz Watercolor Cardstock and then blended in several different distress inks followed by lots of water flicks with my Mini Mister.
Hero Arts-July Card KitI also embossed the sentiment and added a few sequins including some from Lucy’s Sequins Mermaid mix, made exclusively for Hero Arts

  5. Great card. Love the colours. The orange looks fantastics on your card. The hole kit is super great.

  6. The tri-color background sets off the designs beautifully. Who would have thoughts that orange would work for the ocean theme, but it totally does. You have a trained artist’s eye. Love the diagonals, too. The ocean theme is cool. Nice that something goes to the fishies.

  7. Love the background! Did you use any foam tape to pop the layers up or did you use masking to create the crisp lines? Thanks!

  8. What an innovative way to showcase the different sea creatures in the kit. It is lovely. Thanks

  18. Love, love, love the sea and have made many cards using ‘real’ seashells as embellishments. It reminds me or the recipient of time spent at the shores of wherever we happen to be. Love that you used distress inks with the stamps. Beautiful card.

  19. Laura, what a great design. I love the color combo and layers. Thanks for sharing and inspiring.

  21. Like the sea creatures and the background. You easily fall in love with the turtle, octopus, and jelly fish

  23. I must say that this is spectacular and makes me wish for a trip to the beach and for this kit, too1 🙂 Amazing colors and technique!
