Fly Away

It's Day 4 of the Stampendous and Pink Your Life Blog Hop.  Today is also Dreamweaver Thursday so my card incorporates a stencil as well.  I wanted to mimic the circles used on the image but I wanted it to seem as if they were rising up in the air like the fairy.  To do that, I used the Graduated Dot stencil and used a variety of sizes to give the feel of bubbles floating up.  Perfect for the adorable Whisper Fly set!

Here's what I used to create this card:

Copic® Markers
Tumbled Glass Distress Ink by Ranger®
Pixie Dust Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®
Green Cardstock
Black Pigma® Micron® Pigment Pen by Sakura®
Quickie™ Glue Pen by Sakura®
Zip Dry™ Paper Glue by Beacon Adhesives

Here's what I did to create this card:

Stamp image with Memento™ ink and color with markers.
Trim image closely and fussy cut around the top of the heart balloon as shown.
Lightly dust around image with distress ink.
Create an A2 card base from purple cardstock.
Trim a mat for image from green cardstock. 
Using dot stencil, randomly draw circles with Micron® pen as shown.
Adhere all layers.
Using the glue pen, add glitter to each circle.
