FMS#149 & Mama Elephant!

Happy Sunday... I hope you all had a great weekend! Today I have a fun card using the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge and a fun set from Mama Elephant called Up & Away.

 I started with the focal image panel. I created a background on a piece of Watercolor paper using some Salty Ocean distress ink.. Once that was dry I stamped the balloons and sentiment on the panel using some Ranger Archival black ink. Then I stamped the bunny & balloons onto another piece of watercolor paper and colored them in with Distress inks. Once they were dry I cut the bunny out and just the Balloons and adhered them to the main panel. 

It needed a bit of sparkle so I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the Balloons and then a few Sparkling clear Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh! 

Thanks for stopping by today... Head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and see what others created with this fun sketch.. The challenge ends Monday @ 12pm PST.

  2. I love that little guy floating down on the watercolor background! The sparkle of the sequins is the perfect touch. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.
