Birthday Fly With Me

Hello there, today I have a card to share that I made for my friend Niki for her birthday. I used the super cute Mama Elephant Fly With Me set, along with an alcohol ink background made with Copic refills.

I first created the alcohol ink background. I took a piece of Yupo paper and applied Copic Refills in B0000, B00 and BG11. I dropped dots on to the paper and then spritzed air on to it using the spritzer tool. I set the piece aside to dry before stamping the sentiment on to it using Versamark Ink. The sentiment is from the ME Blogging Buddies set. I applied white detail embossing powder and heat set. I then placed an acrylic block over it for a few minutes to help prevent any warping of the Yupo paper. This was then adhered to the front of an A2 white card base with tape runner.
I took a panel of white cardstock and die cut the cloud die from the ME Cloud Nine die set in to the middle. This created a window piece so that you can see the alcohol ink background behind. The panel was added to the card with foam tape.
I stamped one of the elephants from the ME Fly With Me set on to white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I coloured him using Copic Markers (the colours used are listed below) and then cut out with the coordinating dies. He was placed on the card with a combination of foam tape and tape runner. I added shimmer pen to the balloon, followed by a coating of Nuvo Crystal Glaze. To finish off, I added a few Iridescent Jewels from Lucy's Cards.
