My Monthly Hero August 2016

MMH_Logo_TBHi there! Today I’m joining Hero Arts as they launch their August My Monthly Hero Kit. This month’s kit was inspired by “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” and features a gorgeous forest fairy theme.
For my project I blended in distress inks and partially die cut a window using the oval border frame die included in the kit.
Hero Arts-August My Monthly Hero KitI colored my fairy with Copics and added Wink of Stella to her dress & wings.

  27. Your card design was very unique and the colors you chose was so soft and dreamy. Great job and I lived it.

  28. Hello Ms Laurafadora,
    Love your little fairy card! She is so petite and with you placing her as you did it’s like you have created her a little cave to live in and she is peeking out of the entrance to her cave!! I do love your cards but I miss your “stories” when you don’t do a video!!!

  29. Love your thinking outside the box and die cutting off the page! Your colors are just lively! Great card!!! TY!

  30. oh pretty! I love the colors you picked for this card and I also like how you offset the die. That is really clever and it looks cool.

  31. So magical Laura! The blending could not be more perfect. I am really loving this kit and whoa, lots of talented ladies out there. Thank you for your wonderful inspiration.

  32. This kit is a mixed of elegance and magical vibe! I love it and it is perfect for my card making projects. I’ve been sending letters to different part of the world and my letters will look so beautiful with the use of these stamps! The Shakespearean Poetry Stamp is one of the stamps that I liked the most because of poetry and words on it but I also like the Fairy Stamp and Dreams Are Made Stamp because they are very detailed! I really want this kit and I can’t wait to use them and share them with my friends!

  33. I like how you did your background with all the different shades of green. Very impressive card! Thanks for giving us the chance to win this stamp set because I so totally can’t afford to buy it.

  34. This is quite playful. I love the use of 1/2 the circle to give a different dimension. Love the idea and it really showcases how you can use the supplies in the kit in a different way.

  35. This is cool! You only used half of the oval. So unique from the others…..thinking outside the box…..I like that. It causes my imagination to think the fairy is about to enter an enchanted cave. It’s great when a card leads the mind to think deeper. Yay!

  36. Laura loved this card and how lovely you blended the colors. Always love your artistic abilities. Thanks for the chance to win.

  37. I really like how you used part of the background die and left it intact in the card. Wonderful use of ingenuity.

  38. Oh my I love how you used the frame only at the bottom it almost makes it look like a cave it’s beautiful.
