Hello again, I am back today with my second teaser for the Clearly Besotted November release. Today’s card features two more celebratory sets – Balloon Bunch Buddies and Balloon Bunch. I went with an “encouragement” theme for today’s card. I always like to have a few of these on hand to send to friends who are celebrating milestones or achievements in their lives.
To begin, I took the star balloons image from Balloon Bunch and the little cat from Balloon Bunch Buddies, coloured them with Copics and fussy cut them out. Next I took a small panel of white cardstock and blended Black Soot, Chipped Sapphire, Blueprint Sketch and Salty Ocean Distress Inks onto it. I splattered some water droplets over the top and picked them up with a paper towel and then splattered some white gouache onto it so it looks like little stars and then set it aside to dry. Once dry, I adhered it flat to an A2 base card.
The top panel was created by running a piece of Neenah 80lb cardstock through my Gemini with a LF Large Stitched Rectangle and a Spellbinders Deckled Rectangle (which hasn’t seen the light of day in years but they are such pretty rectangles!). I popped this panel over the base with foam tape and then arranged the images across the window portion.
To finish the card I added some shimmer to the balloons, and some little silver star sequins into the background. The sentiment is from Balloon Bunch Buddies and was white heat embossed onto black cardstock before adhering with foam tape and Multi Medium Matte.
Thank you for stopping by today. I do hope you can find some time to pop over to the Clearly Besotted Blog, and to Michelle and Keren to see what they have made today. I will be back tomorrow with my third teaser for you. Until then, happy crafting!
