FM #132, CCIC, and CS #187

Good Monday, everyone.  I think Spring has finally arrived - at least for a day or two.  I had a few minutes yesterday to get in my craft room to make a card but I wasn't happy with it.  I tore it apart and started over and I like it much better.

It is for three different challenges.  I took the photo inspirations from Curtain Call and CASE Study and used the Freshly Made sketch.




Winnie and Walter's Big Bang Confetti made the background. The green balloon is from a Simon Says Stamp die and glazed with UTEE.  I forgot that paper turns much darker with UTEE but it still looks good.  I covered the black hemp with matte medium to form the string and added a sentiment from Hero Arts.  The only part of the original card is the balloon.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great start to your week.

  1. Hi Bobby! What a great idea to make the hemp stay in place ... I don't remember hearing about matte medium. Sounds like it would be very useful. So glad you got the confetti set ... I use it all the time. Hope you and your family had a wonderful Easter!

    1. I had an old, old jar of matte medium in my craft closet. Several other bloggers mentioned using it to stiffen and glue down hemp so I gave it a try. It works great.
