99 Red Balloons


Well… OK he’s only got the one but that’s what kept going through my mind whilst working with this image.

This is my entry for Passion fo ProMarkers Ruby & Gold challenge.The twist was to use gems or jewels.It’s another cute Smookie stamp by Kars.Here are the pens I used:



I placed the ink onto an acrylic block and applied it with the Blender pen,building up the depth of shading until I was happy there was enough colour.Highlights have been added using Inssentials white gel pen.Backing papers are Basic Grey Cupcake,shapes cut from Labels 4 Nestabilities.Papermania gems and Anita’s Sticky Ribbon to embellish.

Confession time – I nearly used brads in the centers but remembered the twist at the last moment!
