PCC255 Sketch Challenge with Hero Arts July 2017 My Monthly Hero Kit

Hello and Happy Hump Day!  I've been missing in action the last couple of weeks over at Paper Craft Crew but this week I'm back with a Design Team Card for a new fun sketch!  

I was super excited for this week's card because I finally got a chance to use my July 2017 My Monthly Hero Kit by Hero Arts!  


I started with a piece of 4" x 5 1/4" 80# Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock.  I inked up the Hero Arts Background Tribal Stripes Bold Prints (July Kit Add on set) with Mustard Seed Distress Ink and added some Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink with a dauber and then sprayed the stamp with some water before stamping it on the white panel.  Once dry, I stamped the grassy strip in FSJ Black Licorice Fusion Ink.  I then cut out the sun in a scrap piece of SU Pumpkin Pie Cardstock.  I wanted to diecut a white circle to go behind the sun but I didn't have a circle big enough so I used my largest circle framelit to cut out a piece of 80# Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock and then I used the same circle to reduce the size of my sun just a little so that they would matt correctly.  I glued them together with FSJ craft glue and then used the same craft glue to adhere it to my cardfront.  Next I stamped the elephant silhouette in FSJ Black Licorice Ink onto a scrap of the Neenah white cardstock and used the coordinating die to cut it out.  I attached it to the front with foam tape.  I used my Misti to stamp the "Huge Thanks" sentiment in more of the FSJ Black Licorice Ink and then clear embossed it.  I then matted this layer with a piece of SU Basic Black cardstock that measured 4 1/8" x 5 3/8".  I used some Journey Natural Thread to run around both of those layers and tied it at the top of the card leaving the tails long enough to curl with the edge of my scissors.  I mounted these panels on a 11" x 4 1/2" piece of 110# Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock that was scored at 5 1/2" for a top folding card base.  I was super happy with how it turned out and can't wait to use this kit some more!  I think I'll try some blues and purples in the background next time.. What do you think?

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings, Tina
