This card was created on 4th November; day 4 of The Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge.
I don’t have a lot of full-size background stamps, but I just had to pick up these balloons from Create A Smile. For some reason my brain came up with the bright idea of colouring it and then cutting out all the blank spaces…
I coloured the background stamp using various red, orange and yellow Inktense blocks. Then I put a fresh blade in my craft knife and cut out every single bit of card that wasn’t a balloon; there were a lot of them and it was not a quick process!
Once it was finished, I added silver thread to the balloons that had strings on the original image and then I gave those balloons a coat of glossy accents as well.
I glued the die-cut thanks sentiment to a strip of vellum and added a few enamel dots. I fixed it to the balloon panel, hiding glue behind the dots and the sentiment.
Apparently I was in the mood for making it hard for myself that day as, rather than glue it flat to the shiny blue card base, I popped the panel up using rather a lot of small foam dots.
