Freckles, Toadstool and Balloon

Happy Sunday, all! =) Hope you are having a lovely one. Here is a card that I made using a few stamps from the fabulous The Sweetest Day collection created by Stacey Yacula for Purple Onion Designs.


I used Freckles, Toadstool and the balloon from Balloon, Party Hat & Kite set to create the scene. The Toadstool and the sentiment from The Sweetest Day Sentiment set were stamped on a piece of trimmed down watercolor paper then colored with a combination of watercolor pencils, watercolor crayons and a aqua brush. After that have dried, I then colored the sky with watercolor crayon.


Mr. Freckles is stamped on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock, colored with Copic makers then cut out. I then popped him on top of the Toadstool with foam tape.



The balloon is stamped and colored on watercolor paper then cut out. It's then attached with foam tape. A piece of black crochet thread is added as the balloon string.

That's all for today. Don't forget to check out The Sweetest Day collections over at Purple Onion Designs. For more inspirations using POD stamps, please visit Purple Onion Designs Blog. Have a sweet day, my friends! =)
