**This is my 2nd post today! Please scroll down to see my color challenge thank you card! Thanks!!**
Hi again everyone!! As I mentioned above, this is my 2nd post! I have had an idea in my head for a really long time and today I was able to incorporate part of it into a card! It was so much fun to put it all together! So without further ado, let's get to the card!
I love to play with PTI's Up, Up & Away set and I thought it would be so much fun to make the balloons into heart shaped balloons! This idea can be used for events other than Valentine's Day, but I chose to go with a V-day theme for this one. I took my twine and a large holed needle with a sharp tip and stitched the balloons. Then I used pop dots of varying thickness to give them dimension and depth.
I almost always use my PTI Sunshine Impression Plate when I use my balloons but this time I wanted to think outside the box and as I was looking through my plates, I found this Giga Guidelines one. I've never used this side of it before and thought it was the perfect time to give it a try. It makes a FUN sun...especially for a lovey Valentine's card! LOL! Such an unexpected element!
This photo shows you the dimension and depth of the balloons a little better (the felt doesn't look that wrinkled in real life but the photo captures it all!). Hopefully you can see how the small white heart isn't popped up quite as much as the larger red heart.
I wanted to make sure that part of my go-to sentiment panel was highlighted more than some of the other words so I went with black & red ink for the main sentiment and then used my Palette Cognac ink (a nice krafty color) to fill in the other sentiments.
This card is for the PTI Make it Monday Go-to Sentiment Challenge and also utilizes Lisa's Color Challenge colors as well.
Thank you so much for stopping by today!! Have a great day!
