Handmade Bliss Challenge #4

Good morning everyone
Well it's the 1st of the month and which means it's challenge time over at Handmade Bliss. So here's my Design Team card for you today - our theme this month is a really easy one, it's 'Anything Goes'.
To enter you must use a product or products that is stocked in the Handmade Bliss store (even if you didn't actually buy it from there). We would appreciate it you could let us know in your blog post which product/s it is in please. To enter, go to our blog here and upload your make there.

Handmade Bliss shope stock lots of fabulous American brands such as My Favourite Things, Stamping Bella, Altenew, Doodlebug Designs, Taylored Expressions, Avery Elle etc, with more big names coming soon. Joanne (the store owner) also plans to stock USA brands that are new to the UK, so make sure you keep checking her store and this space of course. ;)

Here's What I Did
I used a cut down sheet of A3 card for my white card base which I matted and layered with patterned paper. Using another piece of the white card I die cut it into a rectangle and then die cut into the centre using an oval die to create a frame. I laid the frame onto my patterned paper and stamped my image on top and removed the frame (this was for placement later).

The image was stamped again onto colouring card stock, coloured with Copic pens and fussy cut out. I die cut a selection of clouds borders from vellum and glued these behind my frame and added the frame to my card base. I attached the girl and balloons to the card directly over the top of the stamped image that I did earlier, I used foam tape behind the top of the balloons to add a little dimension.

To finish off I added white dots and clear glitter to some of the balloons, scattered a few sequins around the sky and added a few gloss dots at the corners.

Here's What I Used

Other items used are from my crafty stash: White Card, LOTV Patterned Paper, Vellum, White Pen, Wink Of Stella Clear Glitter Pen, Foam Tape, Copic Pens, Sequins, Crealies XXL Dies, Crystal Gloss Dots.
