Hot Air Balloon Bunneh


Hot, hot, hot! Let's just say it's still hot here, in the 90s inside the house. With the ac on, it's 87 in our bedroom. I guess it takes the worst edge off. The humidity is really hard to deal with. Okeedokee, here is the card!

I have not played in a Cat's Pajama's challenge in well, I can't remember when :/ So I just HAD to! The current Challenge is to use Use Three or More Pattern Papers!

To use 3 pattern papers, I paper pieced! Two of the polka dot color papers are on the balloon, and the background is the 3rd paper. Yes, I actually cut all those little narrow strips and adhered them to the card lol!!!! I simply shaded the balloons and bunneh with Copic markers.Since I cut the balloon twice, I just went ahead and made two cards, both going to some children we know :)

I outlined all the pieces, added back the balloon ties, package ties, and bunneh's whiskers with a Memento black marker! The mini packages used as weights are colored with Sakura metallic gel pens.

Stamp Set: TCP "Away We Go!"
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black ink & marker, and Copic Markers, Sakura Metallic Gel Pens
Cardstock: GKD
Pattern Papers: Red Polka Dot, Blue Polka Dot, Blue Swirlies, all by GKD "Hello Sunshine" pack
