How is everyone today? Good? Good.
Today we are a bit split up. I'm sharing two cards over at the WPlus9 blog and one here.
Yes, my first post on the blog.
Can we just let that sink in for a minute?
I was talking to a crafty friend today and told her on Monday when I was looking at the blog I felt like there was a rip in the space time continuum and I was actually living in another universe.
I still kind of feel like that. In a good way :)
We are going to talk about Party Animal stamps and dies today.
I love everything about this set. The sentiments are perfect. Those giraffes are beyond adorable. and the big balloon. Such a simple thing to bring such happiness.
Ready to get happy?
Ahh. Happiness. Watercolor and rainbow colors with a smidge of black. In love.
I heat embossed the large balloon several times on watercolor paper. No need to mask balloons are transparent. Isn't that handy? I used Peerless Watercolors to color all the balloons except for the green. That is Mowed Lawn Distress Ink. In my Peerless Pack they don't have a green I love.
Where the balloons intersect I used both colors to get a third. So pretty! Watercoloring literally does all the work for you.
After it was all dry I used a white gel pen to continue my balloon strings. The white embossing on white was making it really difficult to see the strings so I added a grayish blue halo around the balloons. They still weren't showing up so I went to my go to, the black copic multiliner. The bold black sentiment from the set finished it off perfectly :)
Now I know you're thinking uh, Kelly. There's . .um . .there's adorable giraffes in this set. Where are the giraffes? WHERE ARE THE GIRAFFES?!
I would never neglect those angelic little giraffes. What kind of monster do you think I am?
They are over on the WPlus9 Blog but here's some close ups :)
I hope you'll head over and have a look :)
