Hero Arts: April My Monthly Hero, GIVEAWAY + VIDEO

Hi stampers!

Welcome to the April My Monthly Hero release blog hop. This is yet another kit you don't want to miss!!!
This month's kit focuses on Australia. Over the past year, our hearts were heavy as we watched from far away Australia suffering from devastating bushfires. With Australia on the Hero Arts's designers minds they designed this month's release, paying homage to the fascinating animals, the gorgeous flowers and the beautiful landscape of the land Down Under. As this kit is released, our hearts are now heavy for a new reason. But we are all excited to take you to a crafty escape to Australia, as we celebrate this amazing country!
For my card using the main kit today I created a night scene doing some stencil masking technique.
Watch the video below to see how this card came to be (or click HERE)

For my second card I used the add on set and coordinating dies Beach HeroScapes 
I stamped the water using Pool Party and Blue Raspberry Reactive inks onto Dove White cardstock and die cut. I cut coordinating height piece of Dove White card stock and covered it with embossing ink, then embossed with Sand embossing powder and heat set. I adhered them together.
Stamped the rocks in Soft Brown and Cup O'Joe and die cut. Ink blended the sky using Summer Sky and Butter Bar inks and assembled my card. Watch the video below to see how thing card came to be (or click HERE)
