It's my last post with Paper Smooches SPARKS. :( It's been such a great team! I want to thank Kim for giving me a chance...she is such a sweet person. Savannah has been a fantastic DT Coordinator, and I'll miss my awesome teammates, too. The new SPARKS team will be fab, and I'm looking forward to seeing their projects.
This week, it's the Picture Perfect challenge. Want to see the inspiration picture?
I was instantly drawn to the yellows and the balloons. My card had a few lives, but here's what I ended up making:
I stamped, colored, and fussy cut the cow from Green Acres. For the balloons, I masked, stamped, and colored a balloon from the Hullabaloo set. That set has probably been my most-used Paper Smooches set...I love it! I originally was going to put the balloons wrapped around his tail, but then they looked like some strange gas. Ha ha
For the background, I misted on white paper with a variety of mists, and added a sentiment from Group Hugs. I hand-cut the top of the denim paper to add a little dip...I'm digging that hand-cut look lately. Here's a close-up:
My husband saw the card when it was almost done, and at that point I showed him the inspiration photo. He asked, "Why is there a cow on there?" LOL! I figured it was "big" like the sentiment...I think I over-thought it. ha ha
