I love Red,White & Blue


We’re into the 3rd week of the month long Favourite Colour Combo challenge at Just Some Lines.To play along you need to use a Just Some Lines image to enter and you could win a digi if you’re picked as part of the Top 3!

I thought I’d go for Red,White Blue this week.Not just for patriotic cards – I love the crispness of it 🙂 I’ve coloured the main part of the adorable Girl Holding a heart shape balloon by Just Some Lines with Copic Ciao & Sketch Markers.For her balloon I’ve paper pieced it using a beautiful gem effect design from the First Edition Neroli paper pad.I think it gives the effect of a foil balloon 🙂 This pad really caught my eye at my local craft warehouse and it had the added bonus of having a whopping 30% off 😀 I also found these cute ‘n’ quirky alphabet stamps for £1.99 so I just had to use them alongside this gal.I’ve added a length of ribbon,a layered up Prima flower with a pearl center and a couple of pearly heart topped pins to tie it all in.

Supplies :

Image : Girl Holding a heart shape balloon by Just Some Lines
Mediums : Copic  Ciao & Sketch Markers,Jet Black Archival Ink

    I think you made a fabulous color choice – lets her hair, which you’ve colored so expertly – really shine. I love the fabric-y heart she’s holding too. Thanks for joining the fun at Simply Create Too!
