Girl with balloons
On my card today I've coloured up this little girl from a set of Kanban clear stamps, but don't you think she looks like the LOTV little lasses? To add a little extra interest I've doodled little white hearts onto the big gift she is sat on to pick up the hearts on the pink paper behind the image. I've taken inspiration for the layout from the sketch on the Stamp With Fun blog using various Cuddly Buddly digi papers, a Martha Stewart lacy punced edge and the white line and pricking faux stitches around the edges of the papers. Over on the Dutch Dare card challenge blog there's a recipe to create with 3 patterned papers, 3 flowers, 3 sparkly things and 1 ribbon. My 3 sparkly things are the Marianne diecut swirls covered with Eucalyptus Stickles, the blue sparkly organza ribbon and the heart that's got a stickled edge as well as the stamped text in a jade green pearlescent Brilliance ink. I didn't want to make a Valentine card, so have kept this simple so that it could be used for Mother's Day, a birthday or even for no specific reason other than to send to someone, with love.
