Hero Arts Blog Hop

March 7, 2016 |  by  |  Cards, Copics

Hippy Hopping today with Hero Arts!


Hero arts asked if the Copic team would like to play along for this month’s My Monthly Hero March 2016 kit and I said “Yes Please!”

The kit is FULL of fun stuff: 12 coloring cards on XPressIt paper, coordinating stamps and dies, an Intense Black ink cube (alcohol marker-friendly), extra XPressIt paper, assorted notecards, and a package of gems.



There are even add ons to make your kit go further!

DC184 Ribbon Messages Stamp & Cut: https://heroarts.com/shop-sidebar/dc184-ribbon-messages-stamp-cut/

CL964 Marianne’s Flowers: https://heroarts.com/shop-sidebar/cl964-mariannes-flowers/

PS755 Coloring Foundation Book – Flowers: https://heroarts.com/shop-sidebar/ps755-coloring-f…ion-book-flowers/


I played with two of the coloring cards that came in the kit. Here is the first:

I added a sentiment right onto the card with one of the optional Ribbon messages and because the ink that came in the kit works with my Copics I colored the whole image up and got it on a card base wa-la! I used a lot of coloring tips that Marianne Walker shares in her Coloring Flowers Book.


Here is a close up, I added a little bling to the letters and dragonfly wings with a atyou Spica pen but it is hard to see 🙂 Copic Colors Used: B41, V12, V04, V17, G20, G21, G24, G28, YG09, B99, BV20, C0, C1


My next card I created with another coloring card and this time added not only a sentiment but stamped some of the matching flowers on one of the blank sheets of paper as well.


I fussy cut and popped everything up and yay, another quick and easy card! Copic Colors Used: YG01, YG03, YG07, YG09, BV00, BV02, V12, V14, Y21, Y35, Y28, YR14, YR18



But I am not the only one playing along today make sure you stop by the other fun stops along the Hero Arts hop today!
