You Are Kind Of Amazing

Hello there, I wanted to make an encouragement type of card for my mum last week. I thought the WPlus9 Unforgettable stamp set would be perfect for it. I just love that sentiment and of course, who can resist those cute elephants?!

I started off by stamping the elephant and the balloon on to a piece of white cardstock. I then stamped the sentiment beside. I made some masks for the elephant and balloon with masking paper, cut these out and placed them over the stamped images. I then masked off the rest of the card panel, leaving  strip open. I also cut a few clouds from masking paper also. I wanted straight bottom clouds so I just cut off their bottoms!
I then took my Copic Airbrush system and applied B00 and B000 on to the strip of cardstock that was exposed. I then removed all the masks. The clouds, elephant and balloon were then coloured with Copic Markers. I adhered the panel to a white A2 card base with foam tape.
