A Card Just For Fun

Hi

Thanks for swinging by today.

I am loving the school holidays!! The weather has been pretty ordinary with a week of unseasonal rain but it has still been fun.

I even found time today to make a card just for fun. Now that is something I rarely get to do these days.

I saw the current challenge over at Less Is More and thought I would join in for the first time.

I have used one of the cutest stamps I own called "Lil Monster's Balloon" from AnnaBelle Stamps.


I stamped the image straight on to Neenah Paper 352 GSM (available through Mad For Markers) and coloured with my copics. This paper is brilliant for one layer cards as it is so thick that the Copics don't bleed through at all.

Copics used were

B91, B93, B95 and B97
Y21 and Y23
R20, R22, R24, R27, R29 and R46
N0, N1 and N3

Sentiment is is stamped with SU Not Quite Navy and the border is hand drawn with a SU Not Quite Navy Marker.

The second balloon is actually an after thought, as I accidently made a smudge with the ink. Don't you just love it though when a mistake actually works in your favour!

I am also linking my card up to the following challenges -

AnnaBelle Stamps Challenge - Say It With Frames ( I'm hoping the border around the outside edge counts as a frame)
Thanks for stopping by to see me today!

Michelle :o)
