Blown Away

Blown Away

Another balloon card.  This one is Bentley Gets Blown Away from Stamping Bella.  This is my second attempt at colouring her, originally I had planned to cut her out and have her raised from the cloudy sky.  Unfortunately my skills at using scissors need more practice, she looked awful.

So stamped and coloured with copic markers I had a lot of fun working the folds of the dress.  Then I added a cloudy sky also with copic markers and stippling with the pens to make the sky look soft and distant and to make sure that Bentley stands out from the clouds.

When it came to putting the card together I decided that I wanted to use a smaller rectangle die to show more of the background paper but that meant that I would lose a lot of her balloons.  Luckily my bad cutting of the first image hadn’t ruined the balloons so I simply cut those out carefully and stuck them onto the second image after I had cut it with the rectangle.  I used foam pads to make them stand out from the image and made them sparkle with a coating of Wink of Stella clear.

I also had just enough room to stamp the sentiment that comes with Bentley.
