My Balloon

Finally ... a card! I bought a couple of these very cute Pure Innocence stamps a while ago and have been meaning to ink them up and yesterday I finally did! This one is called my Balloon. I have stamped her out and coloured with Copics adding glitter to the band on her dress. The background of the image has been inspired by a technique used by Crissy Armstrong. I have then cut her out with a circle Nestabilities die and added to base with 3d foam pads. The base is a sheet of DB 'Gumdrop' CS followed by a strip of DB 'Lilac' CS which has been punched using the fab MS Loops punch from Dies to Die for here. I have then wrapped around purple ribbon and Scrappers Floss abd added a button to the front. Elzybells 'A Little Hello' Message stamped and added to the layer. Elzybells have a massive sale starting today too see here for details. Apologies for the photo ... it is a really drissly day here in Surrey.

STAMPS: My Favourite Things, Elzybells Art Stamps. CS: Craftwork Cards, Doodlebug Designs. ACCESSORIES: Nestabilities dies, Martha Stewart Loops punch, Anita's ribbon, Karen Foster Scrappers Floss, Silly Monkey Crafts button, Copic Spica At You glitter pen, Copic Markers: E0000, E000, E00, E25, E27, V000, V00, V01, V12, V15, V17, B0000, B000.
