As usual, I started my card out using this weeks Mojo Monday Sketch # 406. It's a wonderful sketch. I love using a sketch to start out my process to build a card.
I used several different elements to bring this together. It wasn't quickly put together but I loved the process.
The card base is white Recollections card sized 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 squared. I sponged some distress inks along the edges (Mustard Seed and Scattered Straw). I added a layer of paper by Graphic 45's Time to Flourish 6 x 6 collection. It is double sided so I just cut it down and flipped one side to the solid background. Each panel measures 2 1/4 x 5 1/4.
The next layer is also from recollections Tattered and Worn collection in am mustard colored check. I believe this measures 3 1/4 x 3 1/4.
Next comes the tag which I popped up on foam squares. This tag is part of my Pintrest inspired and I got the inspiration from this pin. The tag is from Recollections and is white. I used some distress inks on this as well in Mustard Seed, Scattered Straw, and Gathered Twigs. I then inked up a script stamp by Inkadinkado in Staz On brown to add the script at an angle.
Next is that cute giraffe by Unity Stamps. I sponged him as well with Mustard Seed and Scattered straw distress inks. Then, I colored in his dots with a brown sharpie. I fussy cut him out. The original image comes with a heart shaped balloon attached, but I decided not to use that.
Instead, I used some twine that attaches my tag to the balloon. That way the balloon can't fly away. The balloon is a left over from project last week that I cut out using my Cricut.
Finally is a sentiment by Unity that is popped up on a scrap of the paper from Graphic 45. It is stamped in the brown Staz On ink as well.
