Hero Arts My Monthly Hero April Kit Launch Blog Hop

Hello.
Today I am thrilled to be participating in a blog hop to celebrate the launch of the April My Monthly Hero kit from Hero Arts.
The April kit is beautiful - it contains a gorgeous floral stamp set, 5 coordinating dies, a dot sheet of high quality Daniel Smith watercolours, a waterbrush, cardstock, notecards and pearls. Everything you need and all for $29.99.
To create my card, I stamped, heat embossed and watercoloured the centre part of the flower and die cut it out. I stamped the sentiment on some of the heavyweight card from the kit, and trimmed it down, adding the flower and pearls. I adhered the strip to a Lilac notecard that I had splattered with more watercolour.
Thank You by Lucy Abrams for Hero Arts
The paint colour I used for my card is Quinacridone Violet and it is the perfect colour match to the notecard and pearls in the kit. Love how well coordinated it all is.
Thank You 2 by Lucy Abrams for Hero Arts
