Rainbow Balloon Card

The Crafty Pad and Ones Stitch at a Time are combining for a challenge in honor of a young boy named Cameron.  For more information click here.  I  had the perfect image from One Stitch at a Time-the Balloon Bear.  I combined that with the Rainbow stamp and sentiment from Hero Arts to make a sweet card for a child!

I plan to enter this card in the following challenges: (Cameron's Challenge) (Cameron's Challenge) (see below)

I colored my images using my prismacolor pencils, gamasol and copic sketch markers for the popped up Balloons (B16, G07 and R27).  I added some crystal stickles for the clouds and some white thread for the balloon strings-which proved to be a bit trickier than I imagined!  I have been dying to try my new Inkadoo masking paper-One of my idols-Nichol Magouirk uses it to mask her stamped images and create beautiful cards and scrapbook pages.  You can check out her blog here.  So I masked my stamped images and used the inkessentials blending tool and colorbox blue ink to create the sky.  I then added googly eyes to the sweet little bear because what kid doesn't love googly eyes?!  (Well and me too!)  Then I inked and distressed each of my layers and assembled the card to match the sketch above.
