XOXO Balloons

Hi again. I said I was back from holiday, and here is another card I was able to put together:

I began by stamping the balloons from Clearly Besotted ‘Magical Plushies‘ and colouring them with Copics. I actually stamped the image several times, as I wanted to play around with colours, and this is the one I liked the best.

I didn’t have any shading on the balloons, but decided – for the first time – to use a white gel pen for some highlights. I watched a YouTube video by ‘DrawingWiffWaffles‘ where she reviewed quite a few white gel pens, and then bought the one which came out the best from Amazon. Isn’t it amazing how these white lines change images? I’m definitely going to use this technique again.

I then stamped a cloud image and after playing around with the design, coloured the edges with three different Copics – going from darker to lighter blue. Without this, the cloud kinda got lost in the base card.

The frames is one of the layers from the Reverse Confetti ‘Stitched Note and Frames’ die set, and all three items added to a card base as you see. I wanted it to look like the balloons were floating away with the cloud……

I shall be entered into the following challenges:
