Hello everyone -
During Taylored Expression's 10th Birthday Bash a couple of new sets were released
that I illustrated. The first is a set of big balloons called Celebrate Big and the second is small set with a cat and dog called Yippee Critters. These sets were designed to be used together but can also be used separately.
For my card I paired them together.
I stamped one of the big balloons in Guava ink on white cardstock and cut out with the coordinating die. Instead of stamping a balloon string I used a piece of jute. Since I'm partial to cats I stamped the cat image on white cardstock and colored with Copic markers before cutting with the coordinating die.
For the background I used the Set the Scene - Clouds Stencil Strips and sponged a cloudy sky using Distress Oxide Ink. Once dry I cut out with the Stitched Rectangle Stacklets. I also added a couple strips of designer paper from the Rainbow Brights Paper Pack along the bottom.
I assembled the card using lots of foam tape and attaching the balloon string to the cats hand using Glossy Accents. I also added a few clear jelly rhinestones.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a fabulous day!
