Hey everyone. It’s countdown time for the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero February 2022 kit. If you love surrealism design then this kit is a must have. My sneak peek card was watercolored using metallic shimmer watercolor paint (NOT INCLUDED IN THE KIT). This paint is spectacular on black cardstock. You can also achieve this look with Hero Arts Glimmer Metallic Inks.
First I stamped the image on the new Hero Arts black watercolor paper and heat embossed it in Hero Arts Gold Embossing powder.
Starting with the inside of the door, I rainbow watercolored the image using a size 2 watercolor brushes. Once it was dried, I die cut it out with the coordinating dies in the kit.
Keeping the gorgeous watercolor going, I created a background with the same colors on black watercolor paper. I have to say, I fan girled myself with this card. I absolutely LOVE how it turned out. If you would like to see a tutorial on how to create this card yourself, let me know and I can get a tutorial going for you. Can’t wait for you to see more of the kit on Monday. The kit is available at 1:00 PM EST Monday February 7, 2022. I’ll see you back here then for a new card, tutorial and bonus card.
Have a great day everyone.
