It's a Prettie Party!

It's a virtual birthday party for Prettie Girl Jackie Rakoski!!! Happy happy (somewhat belated) birthday Jackie!

My task was to bring the balloons... so I made a giant orange one and weighed Wade down with a bunch of gifts while I was at it! The rest of the Prettie Girls are bringing some birthday fun so be sure to check out all the goodies on their blogs: Jessie, Jules, Christie, Charmaine, Jodi and Jana.

Quick notes: to create the balloon I traced a circle on the Tangerine Tango and then drew a triangle for the bottom. I then cut the balloon out and used the Scalloped Edge Punch to create a ruffle (I guess that is what you would call it). For the main image I stamped the present in Classic ink and then painted a little Pearlescent watercolors over the image. For Wade I stamped, colored with Copic markers and again painted on a bit more of the Pearlescent watercolors.

Stamps: Love Bugs (Paper Pretties), A Little Birthday Cheer, Holiday Blitz. Paper: Naturals Ivory, Regal Rose, Pink Pirouette, Tangerine Tango, Georgia Pacific white, Pink Dots designer (Little Yellow Bicycle). Ink: Regal Rose Classic, Cameo Coral Classic, Summer Sun Classic, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic markers (E00, E31, Y11, Y38, R20, RV11). Other: Pearlescent Watercolors, AquaPainter, yellow twill (TayloredExpressions), mat pack, paper piercer, scallop edge punch, dimensionals.
