We have a new young lady at church whose birthday is coming up soon. I found out her favorite color is pink and decided to pair it with some green as well. I used this cute image from Connie Fong called Little Blossom Holding Balloons.
This is a digital image so I printed it on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock with my laser jet printer. This ensure that the lines will not bleed when coloring with Copic Markers. I used Copic Markers RV14, RV13, RV11, RV10; YG03, YG01; G24, G21; E11, E01, E00, R20; e35, E55, E53, E51; C02, C01. After the coloring was dry I added accents to the balloons and her dress using a Sakura White Gelly Roll Pen. I die cut the image with a My Favorite Things A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX die.
I actually assembled the card twice. First with it adhered to some ombre pink cardstock.
I felt it was too plain and so I decided to add a frame using Mama Elephant Madison Avenue Frame. I felt it still needed a little something, so I cut the focal image down smaller with another die and added some green patterned paper from the DCWV Glitter Basics Paper Pad cut to fit behind the focal image so that it was showing between it and the frame. 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape was added to the frame and it was all adhered to a top folding pink cardbase.
As a final embellishment Stardust Stickles was added to the largest balloon and then Glossy Accents were a to all. Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh Sweetheart Mix were scatted on the card, one in the center of a balloon that had a little bubble in the glossy accents.
