You girls were absolutely amazing. In our latest Mami Doodle challenge there were 158 entries! Did you gals have fun? If so, we have another exciting challenge for you today: Shaped Cards.
When Elisa created this cute little Girl with Balloon, I know I wanted to make something special with her. However, a few cards ended up starring a different Mami Doodle Digi. So this time, I picked the image first and decide to make it fit the challenge :)
Stamps: (Girl with Balloon) Mami Doodles
Ink: (Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Sugar Spun) Ranger
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - Lemon Zest) Papertrey Ink; (Scrap Pack Card Stock - Blue) Recollection
Embellishments: (Soft-core Color Pencils) Prismacolor; (Summer Days: Alpha Stickers; Rub-on Accents, Epoxy Brads, Element Stickers) Echo Park; (wire) Recycled
This girl reminds me of a Lily. Little Lily with a red balloon! I chose a scalloped circle because it reminded me of the sun. The card fell pretty easily together when the sentiment was picked. From the sentiment I got the a color scheme that helped with coloring Lily's dress. I decided to cut out the balloon as a separate element and adhere with glue dots to a white wire that I had bent into a shape.
The clouds from the Summer Days collection were really cute, and I had to somehow incorporate them. A couple of clouds were trimmed out from the stickers and then placed across the top border. The sentiment is matted onto a blue piece of scrap card stock and adhered with a matching brad.
The flower bed is also from the Summer Days collection and make a great color burst addition to the card, don't you think?
