The other day I received my latest order from Hero Arts which included the May 2017 My Monthly Hero kit and the Reef Border and Frame Fancy Dies.
Here is a close up of everything in the monthly kit.
For my card I used one of the techniques that Jennifer McGuire showed in this YouTube video Magic Stencil Techniques. This was the first time I used a couple of the Distress Oxide inks and the Waves Stencil from Hero Arts for my ocean background.
Here are a couple of pictures of my finished card.
I used the Reef Border die to cut the design into a white card stock panel and layered that over my ocean background. I then stamped the greeting from the above stamp set with the Aqua ink included in the kit. I coloured up one of the mermaids and one of the fish from the kit, with Copic markers, that I stamped and die cut, and added some Sakura - Stardust Gelly Roll pen to add some glitter to the images. I glued the fish flat to the ocean and popped the mermaid up on foam tape and added a little fallback pearl to her hand.
Below is a list of the supplies I used.
