The challenge this week over at Freshly Made Sketches is simple & easy. You can make it what you like. I decided to keep mine fairly simple with a little Water Colouring thrown in.
To create my card, I coloured a piece of Shimmery White CS with my Aqua Painter, Pear Pizzazz Ink for the grass, Soft Sky & Pool Party Inks for the Sky.
Once dry, I then stamped the Grass Image from the “Glamper Greetings” Stamp Set over my “grass” in Pear Pizzazz Ink. A couple of small clouds from the “Life Me Up” Stamp Set were stamped in the sky (very had to see) in Soft Sky Ink.
I then cut the piece into 3 equal pieces before layering onto piece of Basic Black CS leaving small edges showing around all pieces. I originally had it layered onto Whisper White, but it did nothing for the card. The Black makes the piece pop & the soft Water Colouring stand out a little.
The piece was layered onto a piece of Whisper White CS & then to the Base Card – Basic Black.
I have had an idea in my head about using this image after seeing Balloons in a certain way, so I set out & inked the large Balloon from “Lift Me Up” Stamp Set with Bermuda Bay Ink & Daffodil Delight using a Sponge Dauber. I love how it turned out with the 2 colours. This was then die cut with the matching “Up & Away” Framelits & adhered to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The small Balloon was inked in Bermuda Bay, cut with the matching “Up & Away” Framelits before it too, was adhered to the Card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I masked off the top part of the “…..Happy Birthday” Image from the same set with Sticky Tape, inked it with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, removed the mask & stamped it onto a scrap of Whisper White CS. I then cut it into a Banner Shape 1 end before adhering to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
To complete the card, I tied 2 small Bows from Whisper White Twine & adhered to the Balloons with Mini Glue Dots. The birds were hand drawn with a Project Life Journaling Pen.
Thank you once again FMS for a great sketch. You still have time to play along.
Until next time, Happy Stampin’
