I love making scene cards...it's like putting the pieces of puzzles together. It has to be somewhat in proportion and look...well, just right. After making this bike card, I want to try a different background. I admit that I don't used this Hero Arts village background stamp enough. I decided to try this out....first I gather my stamps and try out a few things...
I was going to make a one layer card, but I think it will need some depth to give it more interest. This was the initial plan.
So I re-stamped the background and added the balloon strings....and it did not go as planned.
In fact, I was appalled after stamping those "strings"! So...I re-did everything. This card took much longer than I had thought! At the end....it's all good.
I think the twines provide an easy solution here. It gives a more realistic feel to the strings, plus, it added more colors and details to the card. I use Tim Holtz Distress Inks for this card. It seems that I reach out for them all the time! They are truly versatile and are like the work horse that you can rely on. I'm also entering this card for the Simon Says Stamp (Happy Birthday) Challenge.
Thank you for taking the time to comment as always! I know how busy life is.
