Greetings friends and fellow crafters. This is my first post on the Addicted To Stamps team and I am so excited to share my first post with you.
Addicted To Stamps is comprised of Clean and Simple (CAS) Challenges. There is a new challenge every Wednesday, and each will run for 2 weeks.
SO... this is my project for this first post.
In making this project, I used a Mama Elephant stamp set called Up We Go. I stamped out the little bunny, and the balloons I then used the included dies to cut them out.
The background pattern paper is from a Simple Stories 4x6 paper pad called "Snappy Sayings". I cut and A2 card base to 4"x5.5". I then trimmed a piece of white cardstock to 3.75" x 5.25". Using "Tumbled Glass" distress ink, I smooshed out the background sky. I followed that up by using my stamp positioner to stamp out the balloons and sentiment directly on the background page using Versafine Black Onyx ink.
I went back to my balloons and bunny and with my Spectrum Noir Markers went to work. The bunny was colored using TN3 and GB1. The balloons were colored using CT1, LG2, OR2, JG2, IB2, FS6, GT3, LV2, GB5, PL1, DR3, and TB6.
Once my images were complete, I cut a small V in the bottom of the balloon strings, and then when adhering the bunny with Kaisercraft double stick tape I and the strings on the bunny's hand.
I attached 3 pop dots to the back of the balloons and positioned them over the stamped balloon image so that it lined up as best possible with the strings. I adhered this white layer with double stick tape and my project was complete.
I hope this has given you inspiration, and I look forward to seeing your projects for this challenge. Please click HERE to join the challenge and see the rest of the teams projects.
