Tuesday April 9 – DAY 99 – My Monthly Hero April 19 Venice kit

Devyn: I love the dies in this kit, you can use these in so many different cards. I think that cities are beautiful at night and I was wanting to do something shimmery. My base is Gina K Designs In The Navy, I die cut the 2 buildings in Black Onyx, and the stones Slate for the back and the front pebbles for a frosty or a just rained look DCWV Shimmer Neutrals in Black. I clear heat embossed the sentiment from the set ‘Grazie (thank you in Italian)’ with Wow Super Fine Clear embossing powder. I basically went crazy and used Nuvo Midas Touch for the sky for a stary look.

Lori: I love the Italian theme of the April 2019 My Monthly Hero kit. This set is such a great value, filled with so many goodies! I struggled with this card, though, as doing a daylight version was more of a challenge than I expected. Getting the bricks that are die cut out of the buildings was a bit awkward to work with, so I used colored pencil under them. The windows themselves, I tried filling with Glossy Accents, but they were so little I made more of a mess than anything! Overall, I’m happy with the way it turned out. I used a lot of My Favorite Things cardstock colors, and stamped the clouds with Hero Arts Unicorn White and the sentiments and birds with Versafine Onyx Black. I colored the gondolier with copic markers, then later realized I should have used a fine tip sharpie! (Devyn’s idea!)
