This is another card I created before surgery. I actually created it quite a while before surgery. I was practicing and learning how to use my Copic markers for better shading. The balloons were the perfect opportunity to try and shade different colors. If you look closely, some turned out better than others! I also made the cloud background using Copic markers. I used a scalloped piece of card stock and laid it on my white paper. I put the marker down and as I made a stroke, pulled my marker up from the paper to practice getting a lighter stroke as I pulled up and away from the paper. This is a great way to shade using one marker. It also ends up making clouds if you use a blue color! I added the bunny with the balloons to my cloud background and that made my card. To give the card a little bit more excitement, I stamped the strings on the cloud paper, but put the bunny and the balloons on with foam tape. This gave an otherwise simple card a little bit more texture and design to it.
The stamps and the die-cuts that cut them out came from Mama Elephant. This was one of the first stamp sets I had ever seen from Mama Elephant and instantly fell in love with it. When you like to make cute cards, this bunny is a must have!
Hopefully, I am still recovering from back surgery and will be back to posting new cards again, soon. Until then...
