Welcome Baby

Hello there, today I have a card using the new release from Clearly Besotted that I shared in my release video last week. I had originally made the focal image to go with the background on this card but it didn't work so ended up creating two different cards.

I started off my card by stamping the balloons from the Clearly Besotted Balloon Bunch Stamp Set on to white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then stamped the elephant from the Clearly Besotted Balloon Bunch Buddies Stamp Set underneath so that it looked like he was hanging from the balloons. They were then coloured using Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area) before fussy cutting out with scissors.
I took an A2 white card base and added a piece of Mylar over the top that I had cut using a Hero Arts Nesting Circle Infinity Die (to create a mask/stencil) and then placed the MFT Cloud Stencil on top. Using Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink, I blended clouds into the circle to create a sky. The masks were removed and the sentiment from the Clearly Besotted Balloon Bunch Stamp set stamped on top with black ink.
The elephant and balloons image was adhered on top with foam tape. I then added a few Lucy's Raindrops using Multi Medium Matte glue. To finish off, I added white gel pen highlights to the balloons and black glaze pen to the elephant's eyes.
