To start, I placed the Cloudy Stencil over a panel of Strathmore Bristol cardstock cut to 8.25” by 4” and from the top blended Chipped Sapphire, Blueprint Sketch, Salty Ocean, and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink. Once I was done blending I let the ink dry completely and then trimmed the panel down to 8” by 3.75.” I like to start with slightly larger panels so that I can trim off any messy edges where I started blending! Then I die-cut two clouds from the Puffy Cloud Borders die set with white cardstock and adhered them to the bottom of my panel. I added a little crystal glaze to the top of each cloud and then sprinkled the glaze with Chunky and Prisma glitter for a little extra sparkle!
Next I stamped the sentiment and images from Really High Five with Versafine and heat-embossed them with clear embossing powder. I colored them with Copic markers and then die-cut them with the coordinating dies. I drew strings for my balloons onto my panel and then adhered them with a mix of regular adhesive and foam mounting tape for a little change in dimension. I also adhered my cute fox with foam mounting tape! Finally I added some accents with a white gel pen and coated my balloons using the Glitter Pen and Crystal Glaze!
And that’s it! You have two more weeks to get crafty and I can’t wait to see what you’ll create for the Birthday challenge!
Thanks so much for stopping by and have an amazing weekend! –Jess
