Welcome, Royal Subjects of the Kingdom! This month’s Hero Arts My Monthly Hero Kit contains all things Fairytale, and is so much fun! I have to say, as I was creating I kept thinking of all kinds of mischief these images could be getting into. I kept my projects on the up and up because they are used for the kit landing page on the Hero Arts website. Some folks might not think the ideas were as funny as I did, haha! I can’t wait to see what the other designers create, as well as subscribers and fans!

This Month's MMH Add-Ons
Stamp images in Intense Black ink on Dove White cardstock, Copic color and die cut. The knight is in E30 and E31 for his skin, and C6, C4, C2 and C0 for his armor. The dragon, my favorite image this month, is colored in G16, G02, G00, V09, V06, V01, YR09, YR15 and Y15.
You can find a full list of project supplies HERE.
I used tip to tip shading in several areas to achieve midtone shades when two colors were too light and dark in comparison for a smooth blend. It is a simple technique that makes a world of difference. Touch the nib of the lighter marker to that of the darker marker to transfer a slight bit of color. Then color onto image picking up more color from other nib, as needed. Scibble off any excess onto scratch paper.
The images were also stamped in Intense Black. The princess is Copic colored in RV23, RV21, RV00, E30, E31 and Y28. The Unicorn is in C4, C2, C0 and a touch of RV00 on the mane. The flag is a vibrant purple with V09, V06, V01 and Y28 for the post. Die cut and pop images into place onto card panel, and then panel to folded card base.
