Hero Arts My Monthly Hero August Kit

Hello Crafters! 

Welcome to the My Monthly Hero August Kit blog hop. 
You should have arrived from the amazing Julee Tilman's Blog if you're just stopping you can start the hop over at the Hero Arts Blog  With so many amazing designers (and chances to win) I promise you'll want to start there :) 

This kit has a special place in my heart. All the coffee cuteness! Eeep! I'm totally smitten :) 


It is summer so I couldn't skip the bright colors entirely and since there were so many cute cups to use I didn't have to miss any of my favorite colors! 


I started by stamping and masking my cups. In order to get my whip cream inside the cups I just wiped off the ink from the edge of the cup before I stamped. Super easy! I left the masks in place to create my distress oxide background. 


After the ink blending was done I used one of the new add ons Floral Doily Bold Prints to create some wallpaper to go with my counter top. the whole thing is a bit too blue in hindsight but that's okay those bright colors still POP. 


I did super quick shading with my gray copic markers before covering each cup in one solid color and then added some shading to the countertop. Each one of those adorable sentiments is also included in the kit! 

Make sure you leave love as you go there's a chance to win a kit for yourself! The more comments the better your chance to win. The comments will be open until August 12th at 11:59pm with the winner being announced on the Hero Blog the following week. 

If you love it make sure you get it! 
Once they're gone they're gone guys! 

The next stop on the hop is the incredible Laurie Wilson! 

In case you get lost along the way here's the whole list


Thanks for visiting!
