Today I am showcasing the card I made using the My Monthly Hero Card Kit for September 2018. This Kit has a fall theme with images of Chinese Lantern Plants and pots and some very nice sentiments.
Here’s my card for today
Fall colors obviously were my inspiration for this card. I wanted something warm but still colorful. The color combination certainly matches with the sentiment in this card I think.
I have been trying to work with some ink blended backgrounds lately. I thought this was a perfect opportunity for this project because my card needed some warm background to complement the image. I used Tim Holtz Distressed Oxide inks in colors Abandoned Coral and Wild Honey. I loved how these colors look like a sunset scene.
The Focal Point:
Images of the Chinese lantern plants from the My Monthly Hero Card Kit were my main focus for this card. I stamped one of the images from the stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on Watercolor Paper. And colored the images using the Daniel Smith Watercolors that came in the Kit. I adhered one of the images on the color blended background panel with liquid glue. Another branch was added with foam tape for dimension.
The stamp set includes a few very nice sentiments. I took one of the sentiments that said: ” You bring color to my world” which was stamped directly on the background with Ranger Archival Ink in Jet black.
Finally, the panel was mounted on a card base that is made with 110 lb cardstock measuring 5 and a half inches tall and 4 and a quarter inches wide.
Here’s my final project. I am really happy with the outcome. What do you guys think? I am definitely going to make more cards using this card kit. There are so many ideas for this card kit in my head but due to a busy work schedule, I haven’t been able to create more cards.
