I had so much fun making my card today!
It's for the "It's My Party" challenge that starts today at Stamp Fairy.
I printed Betsy on Neenah Solar White 80 lb. cardstock and set her aside. Next I printed a small piece of Cow print digital paper by Sassy Designs and my sentiment from Create With TLC on a sheet of Mohawk Bright White.
Betsy is colored with Copic markers T5, T3, T1, C2, C1, C0, 100, YG67, YG63, YG61, E25, E99, B0000 and I used the tip to tip method for her nose with R20 & R000. The sky background was created with B000 a little shading under the clouds with C0 and a Q tip dipped in Isopropyl Alcohol.
I cut out the balloons with an old Quickutz die and the tag is by Spellbinders. I needed (wanted) black cord for the balloons so I used my Copic 100 marker to color the white crochet thread I have. Attached the balloons to the tag and put it on my card.
My other cardstock colors are Via Vellum Black & Stampin' Up! Blush Blossom. The layout is Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps sketch #22 slightly modified to work with the elements of my card.
I hope you'll think about joining the fun at Stamp Fairy's challenge blog too!
