Lil Michelle flying some balloons…


I thought it was time this little lady had some inky love.

Today’s card I am linking up to the following challenges

Seize the Birthday here – no topping

The 30 day colouring challenge here 


The paper players here

Scrapbook boutique mood board here

Here is my card

ABS Lil Michelle (530x640)

I started by stamping my image from ABS Lil Michelle.  I masked the teddy so Michelle could hold some balloons.  I did momentarily think of stamp surgery but decided against it and went with the mask. I then coloured her using my water colour paints and pencils.  I coloured her skin with a water based marker.  I then added all the mounts to the card front and the die cut gold balloons using PTI heart-2-heart #2 from unknown cardstock.  I finished by hand drawing the balloon strings with a fine liner and adding black twine to the balloon ends.

This card is off to a family friend’s birthday party at Inflatable World over the weekend.

Thanks for stopping



Edit – I just realised I have entered more than 3 challenges which excludes my entry to SBB. I must remember next time! 🙂


Lil Michelle + AC180

Hi There

It was a wintery Sunday here so I got to spend a little time in my craft room.

The current challenge at Annabelle stamps

I used the sketch and was inspired by another card I saw here

I stamped Lil Michelle in Memento tuxedo black onto X press blending cardstock before colouring her with Kaisercraft alcohol markers. I mounted her to some Kaisercraft paper from the 6″ La-di-da pad. I added a little scrap of red ribbon and glossy accents.

The girls and I have spent the day at Scienceworks and visiting my niece/their cousin. Now we are going to make pizza before Ms 14 goes to see the Fault in our Stars.
