I had to make this very quickly as I suddenly realised I hadn’t made Dr Hubby an anniversary card in all the excitement of getting ready to go away for a week. To be fair, he never gets me a card so every year I think I could save myself the effort but I never do! Besides, I hadn’t used this digi stamp from Tiddly Inks and he is too cute to sit unused, so out came the ProMarkers and I whipped up this little number.
I used the sketch from this week’s Stamptacular challenge as my inspiration;
This was also my first attempt at the ‘out of the box’ technique so I could get the balloon outside my main circle and it worked – hurrah!
Since Dr Hubby isn’t a fan of ‘stuff’ on cards, I’m not sure if the bakers twine will go down ok but I couldn’t leave it without any embellishment. I remain unconvinced by my colouring but am blaming a lack of appropriate light brown colours in my collection; a good excuse to buy some more methinks 😉
Oh, and it was only when writing this blog post that I noticed I hadn’t coloured the little bit of the balloon at the bottom – doh! I managed to rectify it before handing over the card but didn’t have time to re-take the photos.
I would like to enter the card in the following challenges;
1) Stamptacular (sketch)
2) By the cute and girly (boys/men)
Thanks so much for stopping by,
