I started this card by coloring the top part of the sky and the bottom part of the card where the water is using different blue and purple distress oxcide inks and blended these using my new lovely brushes. I also sprinkled a few drops of water on top of the sky to create what could be stars.
I cut a couple of die cuts using the water dies from the kit, colored these using a lighter color than the water beneith and glued them onto the bottom part of the card.
I then dug out the May 2018 My Monthly Hero kit and stamped a few branches on the top left using versmark black ink.
I popped the distant houses and church, die cut using a die from the kit with black cardstock from my stash, up on foam squares and glued it where the water met the sky. I also hand drew and cut a bigger bridge inspired by the small bridge in the kit. I popped up my bridge on foam an glued it to the bottom of the card.
The card now looked so romantic and I really wanted to take my husband and jump right into my scene so I decided to stamp and die cut the boy and girl also from the May 2018 kit and I placed them on the bridge, holding hands and dancing under the starry sky.
I finished the card by stamping the sentiment "Thinking of you" from the kit before I glued my scene on a white card base.
I have to say that I really had my doubts about this card kit, mainly because I hade already seen so many beautiful scenes where people had used the die cuts (remember I live in Norway and my kits take FOREVER to get here... lol) and I felt like everything I did would become copies of what had already been done.
Imagine my surprise when I ended up making so many cards and getting new ideas everytime I sat down by my craft table. There you go. Imagination is a lovely thing.
