I made this card yesterday afternoon ready to share today, this is using Maxwell again from the Digi Stamp Boutique - this time with a balloon:
Some challenges inspired this card, firstly the sketch which is from I love promarkers, I sketches which result in me making uncluttered cards and this worked for me. Next an unusual challenge from Passion for ProMarkers to make your own background. I actually headed to the Letraset website for this and found a really good tutorial that suited my style! So the striped paper behind Maxwell is the one I decorated myself by drawing stripes with both the thin and fat ends and adding some dots too.
Digital Tuesday challenge asked for paper piecing and a digi image so I've paper pieced Maxwells tummy and his balloon in lovely Stampin' Up! papers. I used the same paper for the background.
My colours came from the Color Throwdown challenge blog, not my usual colours at all but I like the result! I printed the sentiment and the ribbon is from my stash.
Thank you sooo much for all the well wishes for my Dad yesterday. I spoke to my Step Mum last night and his operation went well and he's in the high dependancy unit for 24 hours for now. Hopefully she will get to see and speak to him today, soI'll wait for my phonecall later on.
