The July My Monthly Hero kit is amazing! I got that and the add-ons that go with it: the color layering octopus, the seahorse kit, and the paper layering octopus. So many pretty toys to play with! Part of the reason I had to have it all was all the great inspirational posts, like this one. Here is my attempt to recreate Veronica's card:
I added a layer of sparkle vellum for the sea oval, and I didn't have a straight line background stamp, but the rest I was able to duplicate pretty well. I also added a layer of clear embossing over the octopus to help him stand out a little.
Hero arts inks: Deep Ocean, Soft Pool
SSS inks: Lucky, Catkin, Melon,

Chevron background stamp (I think it's Heidi Swapp)
