Hero Arts February 2020 My Monthly Hero

I made a little tag for the Facebook Hero Arts Fans Scramble Challenge. The theme this time was do a journal page or make a tag with something that represents the month of June for you. For me that would be my birthday, my Dad’s birthday and Fathers Day. So my tag is a birthday celebrate tag. You will see how it really makes you think 92 year old Dad. Ha!

Hero Arts Reactive ink

Lately I have been wanting to make a bright colored card. I haven’t quite got the look I wanted. This one is finally more like it. The shiny sparkly cards are always a challenge to photograph so you need perfect lighting.

To start I did smooshing on my craft mat. I love the bright fun Hero Arts Reactive inks. I used Pool, Taffy, Thistle and Creamsicle. I dipped the paper in the ink on my craft mat. Next I heat embossing the big image in the set with sparkly silver embossing powder. Then I cut out the tag which cuts off the outer parts of the big image.

I heat embossed the sentiment also from this set with the same embossing powder.

I also heat embossed the cake, present and balloons. For the coloring I put some color down on my craft mat and used a water brush to paint these for more vibrant colors. I used the dies in the set to cut them out.
