A happy hello!!

Happy Tuesday!! Finally managed to squeeze in some time to make a card.. I used my Spellbinders Scallop circles for this, been waiting to find time to break it out:-)

The challenge theme at the Hero Arts blog this month is Note cards.. So this is my take on it.

I used this cute 'You are the best' set and the 'Monster Fun' set for all the images, and coloured it in with Copic markers.. The green balloon didn't turn out as great as I'd hoped, however I am mighty pleased with her hair!! This is the first time I am colouring hair, and it wasn't too hard really..

I cut out the base card from some Basic Grey Lime Rickey paper and adhered the white circle that I pre inked after masking. Added all the coloured and cut images to find the correct placement and stamped in the sentiment...

After the sentiment was done I added the balloons and attached the string with some Glossy Accents. Adhered the girl with dimensional adhesive dots and added a small pearl to the flower on her hair!

I assumed I was done with the card till I realised it looked pretty bare, so not wanting to compromise cluttering the card I decided to add some stitching with my trusty grey pen..





Hope you liked my post, and hope it was worth the loooong wait:-)


Supplies used:
Hero Arts stamps- Cute Letters, Monster Fun, You're the Best
Lime Rickey patterned paper
Ranger distress ink in green
Copic Markers
Cuttlebug
Spellbinder dies, Scallop and Circle
String
Hugs!!
