I laid the pattern stencil on to my Mixed Media paper, taped it down, and then taped the balloon stencil on top of that. I used the fabulous pen that comes in the Stencil Duo set and traced the background image. Next, I removed the stencils, and colored the pattern in with Memento markers from Imagine Crafts.
Then I trimmed the balloon out, but I decided it needed a little sumpin' sumpin'... and hey! We're doing a Tombow Blog Hop, right? I used their cool Glue Pen to outline parts of the pattern on the balloon, and I sprinkled some Lime Micro Glitter from the Halloween Glitter Kit on top. I worked in small sections so that the glue didn't dry before I got the glitter on. It is holding the glitter beautifully! I also used the Glue Pen to adhere my thin twine (from May Arts) to the card. I drew a line directly on the card (this was the last thing I did on the card), and laid the twine down. Again, I worked in small sections. My sentiment was made from the upper portion of the Incredible You stamp. I embossed it with Shabby White Embossing Enamel.
This card is kind of different from my usual style....very clean and simple, but I love it. I can imagine doing it over and over with all different colors. Hmmmm.....I may need to get on that!
