PCC Challenge #259 - Inspiration Challenge with Hero Arts My Monthly Hero February 2017 Kit

Hello and Happy Hump Day!  I'm super excited about this week's Paper Craft Crew Challenge because I love umbrellas.  I seriously have about 5 stamp sets that all involve umbrellas and rain!  Is that wild?  I didn't realize until I tried to decide which stamp to use.  I must have a thing for umbrellas, or rain, or storms!  lol

Lately I've been on a kick to use some of the stamp sets or kits that I haven't used yet.  I have quite a few so this will take quite some time.  For this card I decided to use a Hero Arts My Monthly Hero Kit from February 2017.  Now I have used the add-on stamp sets from the February Release but not the actual kit... so today's the day!  

For my background I decided to use a trick that I learned from the awesome Gina K of Gina K Designs.  I scored a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of 110# Neenah Classic Solar White cardstock every 1/4" on a Scoring Board.  After the cardstock was scored, I ran a SU Soft Sky Ink Pad directly to the cardstock for a distressed wood planking look.  I really love the look and can't wait to try it with other colors.  I cut my window from the February Kit out of 110# Neenah Classic Solar White as well.  The background of my window scene was created by Ink Blending Broken China and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Ink onto a piece of Bristol Smooth Cardstock.  After I completed my ink blending, I used a distress sprayer to spritz some water on it and then placed a paper towel over it to absorb the drops of ink that lifted.  I stamped my girl with the umbrella as well as the other umbrella onto Bristol Smooth Cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black Ink.  After it was dry, I used Zig Clean Color Markers and an Aqua Brush to color in my images.  The cloud was stamped in Iced Spruce Distress Ink and the Lightning was stamped in Onyx Black Ink onto Bristol Smooth Cardstock as well.  I used a silver Zig Clean Color marker to color in the Lightning.  I used my Misti to stamp the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black Ink in the upper left corner of the window. 

Thanks so much for stopping by! Blessings, Tina
