Girl with Balloon
This is my last post for the My Favorite Things Stamps Camp Create. The last challenge is Spectacular Shakers! Although my shaker area isn't too large, I still love this sweet shaker card! I think it is awesome that almost any simple image can become an area for a shaker, so I had to try it out with the balloon.
I started with an older, retired image from the Pure Innocence My Balloon Stamp Set and watercolored her in with Zig Markers. I followed suite with some customary watercolor splatters and then added a sentiment from Adorable Elephants. I then die cut a circle where the balloon image was to use as the shaker part of my card.
I assembled the shaker portion by backing the open balloon area with acetate, adding sequins and glitter in the area not backed with dimensional foam and affixing the panel to a kraft card base. I then bordered the panel with a decorative pink edge. So simple, but so sweet I think!
I really enjoyed playing in all the Camp Create Challenges, I was able to try new to me techniques and that is awesome for an "old" stamper like me.
