Hi!



Bonus post!  I'm popping in to share a new card today.  I'm linking this up over at my friend Annette's blog. She's celebrating a year of achievements and I'm happy to celebrate with her.

This card uses one of Jenny Suchin's Your Next Stamp sets called Basket Animals.  It's such a cute set and this was such a fun card to make.

It's hard to tell from the photo above, but there are actually about six layers to the balloons. I wanted to create some dimension/depth, so I layered them coming forward.  You can see in the picture below how thick it is at the front of the bunch of balloons.



The coloring is done with my trusty Spectrum Noir markers, and I added the blue sky color using my CTMH sponge tool.

I cut the vellum clouds using Lil Inker Designs' dies.  I used them both on the 'right' and 'wrong' sides. 

Hope that you are having a wonderful weekend!

Supplies Used
Paper/Cardstock:  CTMH - White Daisy; Bazzill Card Shoppe - Wax Lips; Michael's - Open Stock Vellum
Stamps:  Your Next Stamp - Balloon Animals
Ink:  Memento - Tuxedo Black; CTMH - Sky
Other:  Lil' Inker Designs - Rainbows and Clouds Dies; Spectrum Noir Markers; CTMH - Sponge Tool; Tombow - Mono Adhesive
