YAY for Friday! We've got a color challenge going on for TGIF Challenges, a little So Saffron, Poppy Parade and Pacific Point. I decided to use these colors to create a child birthday card with the Little Elephant bundle of products. I paired these products with the Balloon Bouquet punch and am super please with the results. This is a fairly simple card and would be easy for you to recreate using any colors.
I created my own patterned paper in the challenge colors using the long border stamp from this set. I needed patterned pieces large enough to punch out a balloon using the Ballon Bouquet punch. I stamped the board image 3 times and allowed it to overlap a little. Notice the card base? I used the same stamp image to create a pattern for the card base in Gray Granite to add a little visual texture.
The background is a simple watercolor block using a lightened version of Pacific Point and applied with an aqua painter. I was hoping to evoke the look of a little bit of sky.
