The sketch I used for the layout of the card can be found on the Mojo Monday blog. Every Monday there is a new sketch posted for the week which is helpful if you are having creator's block. You can also go back and look at previous sketches for inspiration. Make sure to visit the site this week as there is blog candy (stamps sets) to win.
The image I used for this card is called "HEART CLOWN" from Stamp Oasis. I chose cardstock from SU! to meet this weeks color challenge on SCS which is Garden Green, Brilliant Blue, and Pumpkin Pie. DP is also SU! from the Bella Rose pack. The image was stamped with Stazon Jet Black ink on 140lb. watercolor paper then colored with SU! markers and an aquapainter. Using SU! Markers in red, blue, green and orange I randomly stippled dots to the background. The balloon on the far left was cutout and popped up on a dimensional then Crystal Effects was applied to both balloons. I colored a portion of the sentiment from the SU! Holidays & Wishes stamp set in Ruby Red and stamped onto Whisper White then punched it out with the smallest oval punch. I added glittered brads and white dots around the borders to finish.
Thanks for visiting and have a great day. Don't forget to keep your New Year's Resolution - we're still in the first week of the new year!
