Maisie's Balloons

We've got a new challenge starting today over on I Love Promarkers and our prize sponsor is Stampezee.  You can check out the full details and see all the DT projects on the blog here.

Challenge #79 this week is to create an easel card and I selected the cute 'Maisie Two Balloons' stamp from Lili of the Valley for my DT sample.

I stamped Maisie on to a triangle/penant shape which I cut using a nestie die, then coloured her using Promarkers and my newly acquired Letraset Flexi Markers.  The pale shades of the Flexi's work well for blending with the original colours of the PM's.  There's Glossy Accents on the balloons, her hair ribbon and shoes.  The image layer is attached over a slightly larger penant shape with a lacy edge, also cut using a nestie die.

The background papers are from my stash and flowers and foliage cut using various Marianne's dies.   For the sentiment inside I used a stamp from Little Claire's, attached over a lacy layer cut with a Nellie Snellen die.  This was attached using foam pads to raise it up as the 'stop' for the easel.

That's it from me for today, thanks for visiting.
