Hi there! I made some time to make another card using the latest Avery Elle release! This time I used the Storybook set with matching dies (I'm a sucker for stamps and matching dies!) and can I just say there are soooo many sweet possibilities.
Here's what I came up with...
using the latest AEIHeartUChallenge as inspiration
So a few techniques on this card...I first die cut the circle and white heat embossed the grass and duck. I colored in the little beak and feet with a copic and then used a Versamark pen to color it in to add clear embossing powder and then heat set. I did this in order to keep my duck white and be able to color my background with distress inks. I wanted my balloons to stick out and white heat embossed, die cut and added glossy accents to them. They were foam taped on. I wanted them to appear more raised which is why I ended up making the duck more a part of the background scene and allowing the balloons to shine...literally...hehe
The sentiment was cut using the die from the Custom Panels die set and stamping the sentiment from Handwritten Notes (it has a cool font). Added some twine and there ya have it!
I'm gonna slip this one into the next Simon Says Wednesday Challenge as well.
Mahalo for stopping by!
