Friends Always!


Today I bring you a card made with the cutest digital image by La La Land called Heart Balloon Marcie.  I colored her and the balloon using Prisma Colored Pencils and the Gamsol technique. The papers used to make the flower, pleated ribbon and base of the card are by Prima called Fairy Flora.  Cutters Creeks Store does not carry the Fairy Flora Paper Pad but there are other paper pads by Prima that are just as pretty. Check them out!

The pretty bling surrounding Marcie and the center of the flower were made using Liquid Pearls, Petal Pink by Ranger.  If you haven’t tried liquid pearls you just need to buy at least one color, your favorite color,  and use it on your creations.  It is so versatile too. Besides using it on paper it can be used on fabric too. You can use it straight from the bottle, paint it on with a brush, or dilute it with water to use as a glaze. 

The flower was made using a Spellbinders Die called Rose Creations (it comes with 9 die templates).  And I used Vintage Photo Distress Ink Pad on the petal edges of the flower. Check out all the other beautiful shades in the Distress Ink Pad line.

TIP:  When I cut out the image and a balloon is involved; I cut away the drawn black string and replace it with black thread.
