Greetings! Today I have a bit of a surrealistic card that features the February 2022 My Monthly Hero Kit from Hero Arts as well as the Christmas Star stencil from A Colorful Life Designs. Using these items and several others, I created a dreamy card that I think has a bit of a calming feel to it.

I started by spraying some Mixed Media Cardstock with Saltwater Taffy and Speckled Egg Distress Spray Stain. Then I applied a few stamps from Stampendous (discontinued) with the same colors but in Distress Oxides. Once the panel was dry, I embossed the Christmas Star stencil on top with a glitter paste from Brutus Monroe. I set that aside to dry.
Using the colors for the original panel as inspiration, I colored the doorway from the MMH Kit with Zig Clean Color Makers and die cut it. I also stamped the sentiment with Twilight VersaFine Clair Ink on cream cardstock and fussy cut it out.
On a piece of Kraft cardstock, I painted a border using on of the golds in Kuretake’s Starry Colors palette. This is the same brand that makes Zig Clean Color Markers, so they are a great quality. On my white card base, I dripped some Speckled Egg Distress Spray Stain along the top and flicked on more of the gold watercolor paint. I assembled the card and put foam adhesive under the door to accommodate the layers of cardstock alongside it.
This color combo really gives a dreamy vibe to the card. I love the combination of elements and layers. I hope you’ll check out the new release from A Colorful Life Designs.
