Party Monster

Hi there,

I am just popping in quickly to share a card I made for this weeks Freshly Made Sketches.

It's been a beautiful, sunny winter weekend here in Sydney which inspired me to use some bright colours and I just had to pair that up with a fun image, so out came my Create a Smile Monster Party Stamp set.

I stamped the image onto copic friendly paper with memento ink and masked the balloons to create a larger bunch.  I made a bit of a boo-boo with it which resulted me having to cut out a balloon and glue it over my mistake :( There is a tiny bit of black ink on one of my blue balloons but I had already coloured in the entire image before this happened and didn't want to redo it just had to stay...sigh!  I also used my copics to colour the die-cut chevrons to match the balloons.  The cute tiny stars are from Wplus9 and were stamped with SSS sunshine ink.
