newton-dreams-of-paris_tt_3Once die-cut 6 times from a thing copic friendly paper the hearts were colored with copic markers and then decorated with a flower stamp from NND Bunny Hop stamp set that was heat embossed with a white embossing powder. If you use copic markers, be sure to add the color first and then heat emboss your stamps. Don’t use your copic markers on top of the embossing powder because you can damage them!!! Of course, if you have a matching paper in your stash, you can skip this step!

newton-dreams-of-paris_tt_2I made the score marks in the middle of the die-cut hearts before folding them in half and glued together alternating the colors to form the 3D top part of the hot air balloon. Then I partially stamped the bottom part of the adorable kitty image from NND Newton Dreams of Paris stamp set on another piece of copic friendly paper, masked it and blended a few soft mint clouds around. Finally I removed the mask and colored the kitty itself with copics. A simply stamped sentiment and a few sequins finished the card.

That’s all for today! Hope my card will inspire you and you’ll join this color challenge! I’ll catch you up on the Inky Paws Challenge Blog! Have a great week!
