Hi there! It’s Tobi Crawford here with a cute little card featuring one of my favorite kiddos: Balloon Kiddo!
Isn’t he sweet? As you can tell, I matched the colors (Copic markers) to the patterned papers and embellishments (My Mind’s Eye – Follow Your Heart; Be Amazing) and for me, that’s the only way to do it. How many times have you sat there and tried to find the *perfect* patterned paper for an already colored image… It just doesn’t work!
So once I finished coloring I got to work on the card. I suppose I could have left the patterned paper as is but I thought it would look cool if I hand-cut a part of the honeycomb paper out and popped it up on a neutral background. I found a great chipboard embellishment (including the sentiment, thank you!) and stuck that on top of the papers. The top left corner was bare so I threaded a couple of buttons and stuck them in the empty area – it gave the design a little more balance.
Wouldn’t this be a great card for a nephew, son, or grandson?! I just adore this image… Thank you for joining me, and in case you’re curious, here are the copic markers I used:
