big news!!

  • SU!- big news
  • Mama elephant- rainbow high creative cuts
  • W plus 9- unforgettable
  • Daler Rowney- Aqua fine smooth watercolour cardstock
  • Tim holtz distress ink pads- tumbled glass, stormy sky, worn lipstick
  • Twine
  • Copics- sorry... got carried away with this one and forgot to make a note of which colours I used!! 
I water coloured the blue to create a background. On another piece of card, I stamped the sentiment, die cut into the balloon shape and water coloured it pink. I added darker pink to letters and sparkled once dry. I stamped, coloured and die cut the elephant from a further piece of card. I glued the background to card blank, then added the balloon using foam pads. I then tied twine around the elephant's tail and positioned it on the card, again using foam for dimension. I looped the loose end of twine around the balloon and secured with a knot. I finished with some dots of glue along twine to hold it in place.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Seven hills 'tic- tac- toe': watercolour, big words/ letters, pastel shades or animals, big words/ letters and die-cutting
