Celebration Balloon Collage.


Good morning everyone, sorry been missing a while, I have been so very  busy.

Sharing my "A New Arrival card" from  http://poppystamps.typepad.com/  today.





How cute is this Stitched Elephant die from Poppystamps,  it does say stitched! when you cut out it leaves stitching on the negative card, I did not want to use that as I wanted a flying Elephant lol. with these balloon.


I wanted some detail around this "Celebration Balloon Collage" oval..I have no oval die that I could make a frame with the same size! I left  the die in place after running through my die cutting machine, using a fine tip pen I drew dashers & x`s .. also did this technique on my main card shape. 
I used pro markers to colour these balloons. I raised this card topper with 3d foam tape.




For my multi colours on my text and string ribbon bow, I drew lines onto waste card with pro markers colours as shown, using dies ran through my die cutting machine.



Coloured elephant with grey pro markers, shaped and used foam tape to attach as shown.. random sparkly gems. finished card  6.1/2" x 5.1/2" size.



Thank you for stopping by..Pam ...
