VIDEO: Peace & Love & Lilies + Giveaway

Happy kit day! After the longest month in the history of the world, it's finally February! Good day to celebrate the newest Hero Arts kit! It's a gorgeous kit - perfect for my plant-loving, hippie heart!

The lily image is so accurate and pretty that I had to go straight for the dramatic! 

I stamped and die cut it, but I colored the edges black so it would all blend into the black cardstock. I love that the sentiments have dies - so elegant.

Look at the ephemera in the premium kit! I love the swoopy banners and fun art journal elements. The stencil contains a mask too for multi-colored designs.

Speaking of color - I had fun with my old hybrid resist technique with this groovy Peace & Love bundle - I just love ink alchemy so much. 

I decided to do a more traditional Easter palette for this one with the kit - OH LOOK it's the Pantone color of the year!!! You'll see me make the plaid for this card in the video with OLO Markers and Creative Corners. This is the easiest way to color coordinate alcohol marker images with a background!

Here's the video!
